  Job Description
Wellcome is a politically and financially independent global charitable foundation, funded by a 29 billion investment portfolio. We support discovery research into life, health and wellbeing, and we’re taking on the three worldwide health challenges: mental health, climate change and health, and infectious disease.

Wellcome Collection is a free museum and library that aims to challenge how we all think and feel about health. Through exhibitions, collections, live programming, digital, broadcast and publishing, we create opportunities for people to think deeply about the links between science, medicine, life and art.

These challenges need the bold science we support, but they won’t be solved by science alone.

Where in Wellcome will I be working?
Wellcome Collection is developing a new strategy this year that will set a course for a compelling future, making this an exciting time to join our team.

You will be joining the Exhibitions team. Since 2007 Wellcome Collection’s exhibitions have examined subjects as diverse as the relationship between war and medicine, the history of human enhancement, the dynamics at play between doctors and patients, and the study of human happiness. We are now looking for a curator to join the Exhibitions team to play a key role in developing this ground-breaking programme for our galleries based on Euston Road in central London.

What will I be doing?
As a curator in Exhibitions team you will be:

• Taking lead curatorial responsibility for specific projects including exhibitions, displays and online experiences.
• Working closely with the Senior Curators and Head of Exhibitions to shape an innovative exhibition programme that embodies our commitments to anti-racism and anti-ableism and can reach new audiences.
• Acting as a representative for Wellcome Collection, helping to communicate our mission and priorities and cultivating relationships with partners, colleagues and collaborators.

We are looking for someone with experience of:

• Researching, curating, interpreting, and managing exhibitions, including artistic commissions.
• Communicating complex ideas with creative flare to wide audiences.
• Knowledge of contemporary art and science, and an interest in the culture of health and diverse social histories.
• Experience of digital programming and/or live event programming also desirable.

Please note flexible working hours or job-shares will be considered for this role.

We understand that our colleagues have commitments and personal interests outside of work and we strive to build a flexible working environment, in which people can perform at their best.

In 2022, Wellcome Collection will be developing a new strategy, making this an exciting time to join our team and be part of a changing cultural sector which is finding new ways of delivering its work, engaging people, and placing a greater focus on social impact and change.
