The National Media Museum, Bradford, is currently looking for an Associate Curator of Cinematography, working 21.6 hours per week (fixed term for 23 months). The salary is £21,302 pro rata (£12,781 per annum). With three dedicated cinemas and an impressive collection of over 13,000 important cinematography artefacts, film is at the heart of the National Media Museum’s offering. Working closely with the Curator of Cinematography you’ll make sure it stays there by researching and creating insightful content for exhibitions, publications, the web and other aspects of our public programme. At the same time, you’ll help to manage the care of and access to our collection, ensuring items remain well-preserved and easily available to audiences for years to come.

Required Skills:

A passion for film and cinema history, ideally with specialist knowledge of a particular area, is important too, as is relevant research experience. If you can also add effective interpersonal, communication and project management skills, you’ll play a key role in maintaining and developing cinematography at the Museum.

Award-winning, visionary and unique, the National Media Museum embraces photography, film, television, radio and the web. Part of the NMSI family of museums, we aim to engage, inspire and educate through comprehensive collections, innovative education programmes and a powerful yet sensitive approach to contemporary issues.
