Co-curator

Applications for this vacancy closed on 6 February 2015 at 12:00PM
The Museum of the History of Science (MHS) is undertaking a project centred on
the life and work of the English physicist Henry Moseley (1887 - 1915).
Supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund, Harry’s Story: A Scientist Lost to War
will conserve apparatus and archival material in the MHS collections, create a
special loan exhibition over the summer of 2015 along with a subsequent
permanent redisplay, and also deliver a broad programme of public events,
education work, and digital resources.

The museum is seeking a co-curator/researcher for Harry’s Story. The
postholder will have a key role in the development of the project, working
closely with museum staff and volunteers to deliver the project outcomes, and
liaising between MHS and its project partners. The postholder will co-curate
the special loan exhibition and permanent redisplay, researching and
interpreting materials and writing content to appear in print and online. The
postholder will also deliver events in the public programme and assist with
project administration.

The successful candidate will have a strong background in both museums and the
history of science and technology. The postholder will be particularly
responsible for integrating the project with World War One military history,
and should ideally have expertise in the history of early 20th-century science
and technology.

The role is full-time and fixed-term for 9 months from February to October
2015.

The deadline for applications is 12.00 noon on Friday 6 February 2015 and
interviews will be held on Friday 13 February 2015.
