Position at Tate

From: Jenny Smith <jenny.smith<-at->
Date: Friday, December 4, 2009
Product Developer, Anoxic Framing
Millbank, London

Closing date: Friday, 18 December 2009

Salary: up to UKP30,500 per annum
Contract type: Fixed term contract (1 year)

The aim of Tate is to increase public awareness, understanding and
appreciation of British art from the 16th century to the present
day, and of international modern and contemporary works of art. The
Anoxic Project assesses the possibility of framing works of art on
paper in oxygen-free conditions--in order to improve their stability
in light. Having recently secured another year of funding (with the
possibility of another), the next phase is to investigate the
commercial potential of any research and technology developed by the
project. An important part of this will be developing frame designs
suitable for commercialisation.

We are looking for an excellent product development engineer, who is
ready to exercise a commercial approach and contribute to a
ground-breaking heritage science project. Responsible for the
successful commercialisation of Anoxic Framing, you'll design
product and quality control specifications for a range of anoxic
frames. After producing prototype frames, you'll use non-destructive
testing methods to monitor their performance, both in-situ and
long-term. You'll be working in cooperation, and communicating on a
regular basis, with the framer and other external manufacturing
partners, as you carry out research which will identify product
demand. Reporting any foreseeable problems to the project manager,
you'll oversee health and safety aspects and assist in the selection
of appropriate works within Tate's collection.

Bringing a degree in Mechanical, Chemical or Design Engineering,
Design Technology, Industrial Design or similar, you've worked in a
laboratory or workshop environment and you've gained a post graduate
qualification or significant experience in Product Development.
Demonstrating clear communication skills at all levels, you're
skilled in technical report writing and apply a hands-on, practical
approach when solving problems. You're also organised, results
driven and IT proficient, with an awareness of conservation culture
in a museum environment.
