Are you passionate about pathology and science collections? Do you have a flair for engaging diverse audiences and making collections inclusive? We’re looking for a Curator (Collections – Science) at UCL to enable the collection’s continued use in teaching, research and as a source of inspiration about the natural world. We use our collections, museums, theatre and most importantly our people and know-how to mobilise the UCL community, inspiring them to engage people with their research. You will be working on a multidisciplinary team committed to connecting the world with UCL through our collections, innovative programming and engagement activities. As a great communicator, you’ll be able to promote teaching and research with the collection and engage new audiences with UCL’s academic work.

The Pathology Museum collection, containing nearly 6000 human pathology specimens, is an important and irreplaceable collection with clinical and research significance. It contains specimens from several London teaching hospitals such as the Middlesex Medical School, the Royal Free Hospital and the world-renowned Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children. UCL Science Collections reflect the university’s history of pioneering research and innovation in scientific advancement with objects including Nobel Prize-winning experimental apparatus, prototypes and historical teaching aids across the fields of physiology, electrical engineering, medical physics and eugenics. These collections are an essential resource for our work enabling staff and students at UCL to critically reflect on our collective past, which we believe is crucial to our continuing scientific work in the present and future.

You’ll have experience of working as part of a multidisciplinary team and the ability to work on your own. As a great communicator, you’ll be able to promote teaching and research with the collection and engage new audiences with UCL’s research.

Please get in touch if you have questions about the role or application process: you can email Tannis Davidson t.davidson@ucl.ac.uk who is very happy to answer any questions you have.
