Job: Assistant Curator of Photographs / closes 23 July 2018

We are seeking an Assistant Curator to work in the Word & Image Department for 12 months. You will have responsibility for assisting with projects connected to the museum’s important and growing collection of fashion photographs. As a member of a curatorial team, an Assistant Curator provides curatorial support to the museum’s Collections departments and to museum projects, and liaises with the Collections Services teams. (Conservation; Technical Services; Photography Services; and Documentation and Collections Management Services). 

Assistant Curators spend their time working on object-related activity and maintaining documentation which is relevant and integral to the museum’s collections management policy. All posts deal with enquiries from the public – written, by telephone and in person – and Assistant Curators should have a strong commitment to public access. The range of tasks undertaken by Assistant Curators varies considerably at different points of time but it is the museum’s intention that Assistant Curators should gain as wide an experience of curatorial work as possible.
