We are excited to announce an opening for a temporary Research Assistant at Birkbeck, University of London. This role is part of AHRC-funded research, led by the Mapping Museums Lab.

The Mapping Museums Lab are currently researching museum closure from 2000-2025, and the project needs a reliable dataset of museums that have closed since 2000. There is already a huge amount of data but we need a Research Assistant to help track information on the remaining hard-to-find museums.

You will be a detective on the trail of lost museums. This task requires persistence, lateral thinking, and excellent communication skills (you are likely to spend a lot of time on the telephone), and you will need to be self-motivated and precise with respect to collecting information.

We are keen to complete data collection so ideally you would be able to work in a concentrated way for two months. However, we are happy for the hours to be flexible, remote working is fine (although we will require some face to face meetings), and for the right person, this could be a part-time role.

If you are someone with an interest in working in museums and heritage or public history, or in an academic career in those areas, we would love to hear from you. This Research Assistant role offers a unique opportunity to contribute to ground breaking research and further your career in this exciting field.

Remuneration

£37,143 rising to £42,365 per annum. The salary, Grade 6, quoted is on the College's London Pay Scale.

Birkbeck offers a competitive salary and pension scheme, 31 days paid leave, flexible working arrangements and some of the most generous benefits in the HE sector, all while being located right in the heart of Central London.

Terms and Conditions

Fixed-term, 2 month contract. Full-time (35 hours a week). Please submit a CV for consideration. Closing date: 14 July 2024. Interview date: 25 July 2024.
