We are looking for a digital curator to develop, program, and manage digital communication platforms for Medical Museion and the Novo Nordisk Foundation Center for Basic Metabolic Research (CBMR), including websites, social media, and other online platforms. The digital curator will work both independently, and in collaboration with external consultants.
Medical Museion (www.museion.ku.dk) is the medical museum of the University of Copenhagen and an interdisciplinary research group, working together to engage diverse audiences in health and medical sciences in their cultural, historical, and philosophical context.
CBMR (www.cbmr.ku.dk) is an international research center conducting interdisciplinary research into fundamental metabolic processes, funded by the Novo Nordisk Foundation. The Center’s Program for Metabolic Science in Culture is an integral part of Medical Museion, producing exhibitions, events, online communication, research and teaching that aims to push the boundaries of how we can engage people in metabolic science and the profound human experiences it invokes.
This role will be part of an expanded communications team, including staff working in exhibition and graphic design, AV communication, marketing, events planning, and science communication. The digital curator will maintain and feed web platforms, as well as designing and implementing new online communication methods, and liaising with external consultants on larger projects. They will also be involved in developing a publicly accessible interface with the museum collections. The team combines daily maintenance of a communication environment with creative thinking about future strategy and experimental projects.
We expect that you have excellent digital skills, centrally the ability to manage, maintain, and creatively develop web platforms. You must be technically independent, and able to drive liaison with external digital companies for larger projects. Your educational background could be from many different disciplinary sectors, but some demonstrable interest in both health and medical sciences, and public or artistic institutions, would be a bonus – this might come from your education, work experience, or hobbies.
In addition, we are looking for somebody with:
