The Sedgwick Museum of Earth Sciences at Cambridge University is looking for a Director.

As one of the oldest geological museums in the world, with its internationally important collections, the Sedgwick Museum requires a Director able to provide outstanding strategic leadership. The Director will be expected to use their significant experience and skills to extend the network of the museum, build up a diverse funding portfolio and to raise the profile and use of the Museum collections for research, teaching and public engagement with science. Reporting to the Head of the Department of Earth Sciences, the Director takes overall responsibility for the staff of the Museum.

The appointee will, ideally, have: a track record of working in national and/or University museums; a thorough understanding of collections management principles and the role of collections in research facilitation, object based learning and public engagement; research interests which will probably involve using the collections, as well as experience in the delivery of public engagement and/or science communication activities. Outstanding leadership skills are essential, as is the ability to network and engage with a diverse range of stakeholders, including researchers, academics, other museum professionals, prospective donors and funding agencies, and to represent the Museum at these levels. Applicants should have a degree and doctorate in Earth Sciences or a related scientific discipline.
