You should have a degree in a relevant subject area (such as modern history or a STEM subject), while a post-graduate qualification in museum studies, science and technology studies or equivalent is highly desirable.
This is an early to mid-career post and you must have experience of working in a museum or similar environment. You will display expertise and enthusiasm in one or more of the collections within the Technology Section.

Equally essential are ICT skills in Microsoft Office, together with knowledge of collections management databases.
