Position at British Library

From: Barry Knight <barry.knight<-at->

Conservation Scientist
The British Library

Are you intrigued by artefacts?  Do you want to find out how they
were made, what they were made of, and how they change over time?

This is an exciting opportunity to join the conservation research
team at the British Library, based at St Pancras, Central London,
working with our unique collection of books, manuscripts, newspapers
and a surprising range of artefacts.  You'll help to plan and manage
research projects, and take part in collaborative projects with
other institutions, aimed at understanding how books, paper and many
other materials deteriorate over time.  You'll also give scientific
advice and assistance to British Library colleagues and operate
analytical equipment.

You will be educated to degree level in science or cultural heritage
conservation, ideally with a higher degree. You'll have an enquiring
mind and a diverse range of scientific interests.  A proven track
record in delivering projects on time and to remit is essential, as
is the proven ability to communicate research findings effectively,
both orally and in writing, to a variety of audiences.

For an informal discussion about this post, please call Dr Barry
Knight on 020 7412 7229.

Closing date: 15 February 2009

Salary range UKP29,332-UKP34,237 (appointments usually made at the
band minimum)
