Logo VA Museum

The V&A is the world’s leading museum of art, design and performance, and the custodian of an extraordinary and extensive collection spanning decorative and applied arts. As Conservation Scientist you will have the exciting opportunity to work in our newly-refurbished laboratory, where a AHRC £2.3 million grant has enabled the purchase and upgrade of a wide range of microscopes, spectrometers and X-radiography equipment. With experience in the analysis of materials from cultural heritage contexts, as Conservation Scientist you will undertake the analysis of organic, polymeric and modern materials (as well as other traditional materials where appropriate) in museum objects, using FTIR, UV-vis-nIR, optical microscopy, Raman microscopy and other appropriate techniques. Previous experience with and expertise in colour measurements and light sensitivity of materials is desirable. You will undertake and support research enabling the delivery of the museum’s Public Programme and strategic objectives in care of collections and research. You will be active in publications, presentations, contribute to the V&A’s blog and public events.
