Do you like the Peanuts? Are you a fan of Charlie Brown, Snoopy, Lucy and Linus? When you hear Vince Guaraldi's piano do you immediately think Charlie Brown Christmas? Well, there's a job that you might be interested in.
The Charles M. Schulz Museum And Research Center in Santa Rosa, California is looking for a curator. It's a full-time gig and you'll need some museum experience that doesn't just include staring at the exhibits or eating in the cafeteria.

As the curator, you'll be "responsible for planning the exhibition schedule, researching, and writing exhibition text." Some other stuff is required, but details and contact info are at the job listing.
Good luck, job seekers!
