Salary: £18,500 - £20,500
Are you a motivated individual with a keen interest in medical history and current biomedical science? Would you like to work at the Science Museum, supporting and delivering collections-based content for the most ambitious element of our Masterplan? We are creating a suite of five new Medicine Galleries, opening in 2019, which will showcase our world-class Medicine collection in a new location at the heart of the Museum.
This is a unique opportunity to contribute to the intellectual development and the delivery of the Medicine Galleries project. Your role will include enabling and documenting the practical development of object displays. You will also conduct content research to inform object and digital interpretation, plus associated online and publication outputs. Enhancing collection documentation also forms a key part of the role. You will supervise volunteers/ interns as required.
The position is based at the Science Museum, but you will be required to work from time to time at Blythe House, the Science Museum's small object store in West London, and also at our large object store, Wroughton near Swindon.
The post is subject to funding confirmation.
