The Fitzwilliam Museum is the principal Museum of the University of Cambridge. It was founded in 1816 by the bequest of Richard Viscount Fitzwilliam, an eighteenth century collector whose gift included funding for the building on Trumpington Street which opened to the public in 1848. Since then the Museum and its collections have continued to grow, thanks to generations of benefactors. Today it houses under a single roof works of art surviving from many of the great civilisations of the past, from Ancient Egypt, Greece and Rome, through the occidental and oriental cultures of the most recent millennia to European and North American art of the last century.
One of the key initiatives for the Museum’s Strategic Plan 2009 - 2016 is to further strengthen its research output, educational outreach and profile locally, nationally and internationally by developing an enhanced exhibition programme. This post is crucial in supporting and developing the Museum’s programming ambitions.
The University of Cambridge follows an equal opportunities policy and aims to achieve the highest quality in teaching and research.
