Hours: Full time
Contract Type: Fixed term for two years.

The Research Department at Tate aims to develop the museum’s research potential, and in-depth research into the collection plays a key role in this. Tate has world class holdings of the works of the British sculptor Henry Moore, and together with The Henry Moore Foundation we are looking for a scholar to lead a programme of research into our Moore holdings and to stimulate new thinking about this pioneer of modern sculpture through online publications, research events, and displays.

With research experience in the field of modern British or international art and knowledge of the work of Moore or his contemporaries, you will lead an in-depth research project and help frame the vision for an online scholarly site. In particular, you will be responsible for preparing detailed catalogue entries on Moore’s sculptures at Tate. You will liaise with a range of scholars in the field and organise research events. You will also contribute proposals for displays of Moore’s works at Tate, and undertake associated curatorial tasks. You will have excellent research, writing and interpersonal skills, as well as an ability to manage projects.
