The V&A and the National Trust are looking for a Project Coordinator to support the development and delivery of an exciting collaborative project funded by the British Academy.
“‘Private’ Spaces for Public Benefit? Country Houses as sites for research and knowledge exchange innovation’ is led by Dr Oliver Cox (Head of Academic Partnerships, V&A) and Dr Tarnya Cooper (Curatorial and Collections Director, National Trust). It will map the barriers to the presentation and interpretation of country houses which are both former homes, early art galleries, and now public heritage spaces. It will explore shared concerns around how academic research can contribute to increasing choices for visitors in how they intellectually and physically access historic interiors and collections. The project will actively engage with methodologies from the museum sector, using the V&A and National Trust’s holdings as key case studies.
We are seeking to appoint a 0.5FTE project coordinator on an 18-month contract who will provide organisational support for a series of sector-facing workshops, a high-profile end of project conference, and to act as a research assistant contributing to a research and literature review exploring developments in country house and museum curatorship and academic research cultures.

This vacancy is open to internal and external applicants. The salary is £30,692 Per Annum (pro rata). Closing date 22nd January 2023.
