Working within the Gardens and Landscape Team you will undertake research into the historic gardens and designed landscapes of English Heritage properties to support the production of on-site visitor interpretation, print, and digital content. Research must be carried out to the highest academic standards, incorporating the widest possible range of sources.

The Gardens and Landscape Team is part of the Curatorial Department and is responsible for the curation and management of gardens, designed landscapes and the setting of monuments in the care of English Heritage. This is realised by the undertaking and commissioning of research, developing and advising on gardens and landscape policy, management and practice, and supporting operational teams by providing support, guidance, advice and training.

You will be responsible for creating focused research plans for sites, carrying out archival research, commissioning research from external experts and writing interpretative content. You will, where appropriate, communicate your research through scholarly periodicals, the English Heritage website, and Members' Magazine, and through the print and broadcast media.

Most of your work will be with colleagues as part of project teams, developing and implementing research programs to support and input into high-quality, new interpretation and presentation schemes. You will also contribute to the research and preparation of Conservation Management Plans and support master planning activities.
