Are you an experienced researcher? Can you communicate confidently in both English and Mandarin? The Science Museum Group is seeking to appoint a full-time UK-China Rutherford Curatorial Research Fellow for a period of up to 5 months starting in early 2018. This is a unique and exciting opportunity to contribute to the world's premier science museums in a rich but little-known field.

The purpose of the role is to identify and provide preliminary evaluation of the key elements for a major museum exhibition - and other public programmes - about historic and contemporary science and technology in China. In your role you will work with a number of colleagues, including those in the Collections, Contemporary Science, Touring and Research & Public History Departments.

The Science Museum in London (flagship of the Science Museum Group) runs an ambitious programme of innovative temporary exhibitions. We are expanding our work in and with China and, amongst other things, are considering a temporary exhibition on Chinese science and technology - past, present and looking to the future - that would be shown at the Science Museum in London, the Museum of Science and Industry in Manchester in the period after 2022, and then be available for UK and international touring.

The Science Museum Group (SMG) comprises the Science Museum in London, the Museum of Science and Industry in Manchester, the National Railway Museum in York and Shildon and the National Science and Media Museum in Bradford. Together we share a mission to inspire futures.

You will be selected on the basis of your potential for pursuing research in, and contributing to, the field of the Chinese history of science and technology within a museum environment.

You will be an experienced researcher with a PhD (or equivalent) and, ideally, some post-doctoral experience in a relevant field. You must be able to communicate confidently in English and Mandarin. Knowledge of the museum sector in in China and/or Chinese collections in the UK and elsewhere would be very useful.

You will be offered excellent benefits, including 25 days' holiday pro-rata in addition to bank holidays, a contributory pension scheme, BUPA medical and dental care, and numerous staff discounts whilst developing your career in a world class museum group.

Interviews will take place on the week commencing Monday 29th January 2018.
