A vacancy has arisen for a Curator of Transport to work in the Collections Unit [Engineering Technologies Group]. The post holder will develop and deploy knowledge of the past, present and future of transport in all its forms (land, water, and air), for the engagement, enjoyment and benefit of our many audiences.

In addition to the study and care of the unparalleled collections of the National Museum of Science and Industry, future work will involve support to the refurbishment of the Shipping gallery at South Kensington, representing the subject of Transport in the Museum’s outposts, and developing networks in support of the huge enthusiast and special interest groups across the field [this will exclude the bulk of the rail collections, which are covered at the National Railway Museum, York].

Candidates should have a good general education, to Masters degree level, or equivalent experience. They should be able to demonstrate detailed knowledge of one of the three main fields, a passing knowledge of a second, and a preparedness to learn about the third.
