Tate's vision is to act as a champion for art in society. We do this through activities in our four galleries across the UK (Tate Liverpool, Tate St Ives, Tate Britain and Tate Modern), our digital platforms and collaborations with our national and international partners. Part of the Partnerships and Programmes division, Tate Research was established in 2006 following recognition of the museum as an Independent Research Organisation by the Arts and Humanities Research Council.
Working closely with the Head of Collection Care Research, you will manage and support the research that ensures our collections are available and accessible now and in the future. Take this two and a half year contract, funded by a range of national and European research grant awards, and you will use your project management skills to ensure the successful delivery of leading edge collection care and conservation research, support and contribute to the development of the department and oversee Collection Care research publications.
You'll come to us with a proven track record of project management and a commitment to accurate and detailed reporting. Committed to high quality research and its communication, you will support staff in developing their research skills and make a positive contribution to building the profile of research at Tate. An understanding of conservation, collection management, or heritage science would be desirable. A creative approach to problem solving will be essential.
This position is offered on a fixed-term contract for two and a half years.
