The School of Biological Sciences is home to an historical teaching collection of zoological specimens. The collection remains a central component of our taught degrees. The Cole Museum of Zoology moved to a new biology building in 2020, but the remaining bulk of the collection needs to be maintained and eventually moved to a new location. We require a general project officer to help with the organisation, packing and moving of specimen. The post holder will also be involved in cataloguing of the specimens, updating our website, organising museum outreach events and delivering social media. The post holder will supervise volunteers on a Wednesday afternoon to help with these tasks.
We are looking for a graduate in a biological science, with experience of working with microsoft software including excel and word as well as Teams. Ideal candidates will have worked in groups, but be able to work independently, and have experience of supervising and interacting positively with groups of young adults. We are particularly keen to interview candidates with specific zoological or museum-related backgrounds. We are looking to employ someone from early March 2023 for a period of 12 months.
