Job Opportunity | British Museum

Curator of European Modern Collection 1800 to present
British Museum, London
Full time (41 hours per week), permanent contract
Salary: £41,949 per annum
Deadline to apply: Friday 2 August 2024, 12:00 (midday) BST

The British Museum are looking to hire a curator to curate, research, document, display and augment the Museum’s collection of European material culture dating from 1800 to the present in support of the Museum Operating Plan and all relevant Museum strategies. This includes research, making the collection accessible in the galleries, through exhibitions and media, as well as collaborating on the eventual re-display enabled through the Masterplan.

The jobholder is expected to be a recognised authority about a particular aspect of modern material culture represented in the collection and to manage and develop areas of it that are beyond their current areas of expertise. This is a senior post with opportunity to develop the modern section through funded research projects and the use of hypothecated financial support.
