Deputy Research Project Leader, Science Museum Group


Do you want to collaborate in the management of the delivery of a complex multidisciplinary action research project?

The Science Museum Group is ten months into its major academic research project, The Congruence Engine: Digital Tools for New Collections-Based Industrial Histories. Its aim is to show how computational tools can be used to link collections for the purpose of doing new historical work and to enhance access.

This exciting £2.9M three-year project is one of five funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council under the ‘Towards a National Collection’ scheme. It brings together specialist digital programmers with amateur and professional historians, curators and community groups to conduct individual and group research projects on industrial history and its contemporary resonances.

We are now looking for a Deputy Research Project Leader to join us on a fixed term contract until November 2024. You can work up to 28 hours per week (fewer hours per week can be agreed) with hybrid/remote working options available.
