Vacancies in the University

The University is committed to equality of opportunity and has a policy on arrangements for part-time work.


Applications are invited for the following University offices:

Assistant Curator in the Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology

Applications are invited for a University Office of Assistant Curator in Anthropology to start early in 2002. The post is tenable for a maximum period of five years in the first instance, is subject to the Statutes and Ordinances of the University, and carries entitlement to sabbatical leave. The pensionable stipend is in the range of £17,451 to £24,193 a year, dependent upon age and experience.

The appointee will be responsible to the Senior Assistant Curator in Anthropology and, ultimately, to the Director. He or she will contribute to the care of the Museum's extensive anthropological collections, their documentation, storage, and display, and to making these collections available to a wide range of Museum users, from international academic researchers to school groups and members of the public. The Assistant Curator will be involved in the Museum's work with source communities and will be responsible for supervising assistant staff, volunteers, and students. She or he will be expected to undertake research and to contribute to the teaching of the University's Department of Social Anthropology.

Candidates should hold a relevant University degree and, ideally, have significant experience and/or a postgraduate qualification in social anthropology or museum studies. Applications (ten copies, or one only from overseas candidates) should be sent to the Secretary to the Appointments Committee, Faculty of Archaeology and Anthropology, Downing Street, Cambridge, CB2 3DZ, to arrive not later than 7 January 2002. They should comprise a detailed letter specifying the candidate's areas of anthropological and museological expertise, a comprehensive curriculum vitae with a list of publications, and the names and addresses of three referees whom the Appointments Committee may approach for a confidential assessment of the candidate's suitability. It is anticipated that interviews will be held in Cambridge in late January 2002, with the successful candidate starting work as soon as possible thereafter.
