We’re looking for a Conservator to join the Putting Flesh on the Bones Project Team.
The post of Project Conservator is central to the delivery of the project, which aims to make the hidden and scattered Calvin Wells Archive fully available to the public. Funded by a Wellcome Trust Research Resources grant, PFOTB is a collaboration between Special Collections and the Biological Anthropology Research Centre (BARC) at the University of Bradford.

There will also be the opportunity to help improve collections care throughout the Special Collections service.
We are looking for a qualified conservator with specialist knowledge and work-based experience relevant to the project. They will also need excellent communication skills and be able to manage their own workload. More about the role and our requirements on the University’s job website.
