Job description

Science Gallery London (SGL) is King’s flagship, public-facing facility connecting art, health and science in the heart of the city. In 2022, King’s will relaunch SGL, drawing on the learnings of the first two years of operations and the opportunity for reflection offered by the temporary closure through the pandemic.

Reimagined as King’s interdisciplinary hub for discovery in art, health and science, with a focus on young adults, SGL will deliver on Vision 2029’s ambitions for distinctive learning, research with purpose and engagement with local, national and international communities. SGL will be more than a gallery, working in partnership to explore complex challenges and foster innovation, collaboration and inclusion. 

Part of the Science Gallery Global Network, Science Gallery London will provide:

  • A hub for discovery, learning, exchange and equality; bringing together creative practice, lived experience and academic research for social impact
  • A live lab for experimentation, co-creation and making
  • A gallery that explores 21st century concerns through cross-disciplinary collaboration

King’s is seeking an experienced and dynamic leader for this exciting new phase of Science Gallery London’s evolution, delivering King’s ambitions for the space and realising the potential for SGL to succeed as an inclusive, future-focused facility for innovative art-science collaborations. They will understand and be excited by the potential for Science Gallery London within the context of a world leading university; enriching the social and intellectual life of our students and communities and developing skills, resilience and creativity.

Part of King’s Culture, the university’s specialist culture directorate, the Director of Science Gallery London will work closely with colleagues across the university. They will be a great team player, willing to be hands-on as well as a strategic thinker and committed to supporting the wider work of King’s. They will be expert at developing dynamic and diverse partnerships, shaping and informing policy and practice at a local, national and international level. The Director will represent King’s as part of the Science Gallery Global Network, brokering collaborations between Science Gallery London and other members of the network.

At King's, our definition of diversity encompasses and goes beyond the characteristics protected by the Equality Act 2010 to include everything that makes us unique, from our backgrounds and experiences to our personalities and ways of thinking. King’s Culture welcomes applicants from communities underrepresented in the higher education and/or cultural sector and expects all applicants to demonstrate clear commitment to diversity and inclusion. 

This post will be offered on an indefinite contract. This is a full-time post.
