Job: Curator, Photography / closes 5 August 2022

This is an exciting time to join the Libraries and Museums team as Curator, Photography. We recently acquired a major photographic archive of Document Scotland photojournalist, Jeremy Sutton-Hibbert, and have just launched a showcase of our James Valentine Photographic Collection at the V&A Dundee. In 2021 we opened the new Wardlaw Museum after a major capital project to extend and completely redisplay it, including the creation of a new temporary exhibitions space. We are in the process of redesigning our research and teaching support services and continue to expand our digitisation and online engagement with the collections.

With a degree in a relevant subject area, or equivalent knowledge of photography, photographic processes and collections management, the successful candidate will have a combination of curatorial and project management experience, interpretative skill, and ideally some experience in Higher Education contexts. Working alongside specialist collections and curatorial staff, as well as staff in the Experience and Engagement team, the postholder will join an active and ambitious Libraries and Museums unit at an exciting moment of change and renewal.

Further information and informal enquiries may be directed to Jessica Burdge, email: or Dr Catriona McAra, email:
