This is an exciting opportunity to join the British Museum’s newly-formed research management team. We are looking to recruit two Research Managers to provide project management and financial administration support for a diverse range of internally and externally funded projects that form part of the Museum’s research programme.

Founded in 1753, the British Museum is one of the world’s greatest museums and a leading Independent Research Organisation. Our collection is the most comprehensive survey in existence of the material cultures of humanity over two million years. Research at the Museum drives the care, display and understanding of the collection and helps people to learn about and be inspired by human history through objects.

Our staff carry out research all over the world, often in collaboration with partners. Research projects cover a wide variety of academic disciplines and can involve archaeological excavation, studies of museum collections, working with craftspeople, understanding our visitors and scientific investigations.

Key responsibilities:

You will work closely with curators and research leads across the organisation to coordinate project delivery, monitor budgets and support the reporting process. You will also advise on the development of new research funding applications and oversee the management of research outputs once projects are complete. Other responsibilities include acting as secretary to the Museum’s Research Board, and the administration of the Museum’s research student programme.

Person specification:

The successful candidates will have experience of research funding or project management, and ideally a recognised project management qualification. You will be adept at financial administration with a good understanding of research bid preparation, submission and reporting processes. Effective team work and stakeholder management is essential, and you will need to be articulate and persuasive, and comfortable communicating complex information to different audiences.
