The post-holder will be responsible for the development, care, research, display and interpretation of a designated area of the European sculpture collections from c.1800 to the present day, including British sculpture and the casts. The extensive European collections are of national and international importance, and the post-holder will be expected to represent the Museum at the highest level and play an active role in the field of sculpture studies and collecting. The post-holder will serve a wider role within the Department and across the Museum as one of the period specialists, contributing to forthcoming major FuturePlan projects, including V&A East.

The successful candidate will have an established expertise in European sculpture studies that falls primarily within the 19th and 20th century, with a keen interest in contemporary, and the potential to develop further expertise in these areas. The post requires commitment to scholarship and the full range of curatorial work and collections management: making the collection accessible to a wide range of audiences, through exhibitions, displays, events, publications, lectures and gallery talks, and the creation of web content. The successful candidate may be expected to contribute to the development of temporary displays and exhibitions.

The SMCG department operates a busy programme of loans to exhibitions, both nationally and internationally, and the successful candidate will contribute to and manage this programme within the Sculpture Section, in collaboration with colleagues.

Closing date for receipt of applications is Monday 3rd February 2020 at midday.

Interviews will be held 13th or 14th February 2020.
