We are looking for a Receptionist to provide a friendly and informative first point of contact for visitors to the Department of History and Philosophy of Science, including the Whipple Museum. The Receptionist will answer queries face to face, on the telephone, and via e-mail; will pass on messages and more complex queries, and will help out in the Departmental Office and do some work for the Museum.

The post is full time but we will consider applications from people who want to work part time. We would like someone who has experience in a similar environment, we also ask for the equivalent of 5 GCSEs, and an appreciation of how the University works.

Application forms are available online or from the Department of History and Philosophy of Science, University of Cambridge, Free School Lane, Cambridge CB2 3RH, tel: 01223 334540. You should only complete sections I and III of the form. Please include a covering letter telling us why you would be ideal for this post, and stating whether you want to work full-time or part-time.

Applications should be sent to the Administrator, to arrive by 30 March 2007. Please note we will not accept e-mailed applications. Shortlisted candidates will be informed by mid-April 2007 if they are required for interview.
