In the posting at msichicago.org, the museum says it is seeking an 'adventurous, outgoing person with a strong interest in learning about science and the world around him or her' for a Month at the Museum. Other pluses include a good writer who's web savvy.
The assignment includes living in the museum 24 hours /7 days a week from October 20 to November 18, 2010, and recording those experiences for the rest of the world. There are several rules and regulations, including no overnight visitors and no smoking, and you have to be completely committed to the museum for that month. But there's also a payout- $10,000, tech gadgets used to record your experience, and, of course, bragging rights. You do get to live in one of Chicago's most famous landmarks.
Applicants must provide a 60-second video on DVD, a 500-word essay, a photo, an application form and sign release and waiver.
