The British Museum is unique in bringing together the cultures of the world under one roof, spanning continents and oceans. No other museum is responsible for collections of the same depth and breadth, beauty, and significance. Its eight million objects allow us to explore the extraordinary diversity of human cultures, from small communities to vast empires, to discover the many forms and expressions human beings have given to every aspect of life, and to realise how closely they are interconnected.
About the role: The Curator: Americas is a key role in our Africa, Oceania and Americas department. The role is required to deliver innovative research which enhances knowledge of the collection and also enables public accessibility, and to support engagement with source communities. The role will also support our Rosetta Project, the Museum’s masterplan for future development and all relevant Museum wide strategies.
