Applications for this vacancy closed on 28 July 2016 at 12:00PM
PLEASE NOTE CHANGE OF CLOSING DATE:



A new and exciting opportunity has arisen at the Museum of the History of
Science. The Museum is seeking Project Assistants to become part of a team to
document, prepare and pack the objects in a significant reserve collection,
currently housed in a large off-site warehouse facility, as part of a major
collections move. The roles are fixed-term contracts for 1 year and are based
in Oxford.



The Project Assistants, coordinated by the Project Team Leader, will be
required to participate in the documentation, basic cleaning, photography,
packing, and storage of objects in a safe manner and within the project
deadline. The Project Assistants will be responsible on a day-to-day basis to
the Project Team Leader, with oversight of the project by the Museum
Collections Manager and the Museum Conservator. The posts will be based in a
warehouse environment and require standing, and lifting of objects and packed
boxes.



A Project Team Leader and two Project Assistants are already in post. The new
Project Assistants will join this existing team.



Full details of the positions are available in the job description. The
essential requirements include experience of working in a museum or equivalent
heritage site; understanding, knowledge and experience of handling and packing
complex and delicate artefacts; the ability to use critical thinking and
independent judgement to interpret objects, and information about them,
against standardised guidelines; familiarity with the principles of museum
security, appropriate packing and storage of objects, and collections care;
and a proven ability to work effectively as part of a team.



The closing date for applications is 12.00 noon on 28 July 2016. Interviews
will be held on 8 August 2016.
