Armagh Robinson Library is seeking to appoint a Full Time Curatorial Research Fellow, on a 15-month contract, to work on a collection of 15th-18th century prints and engravings bequeathed by the Library’s founder, Archbishop Richard Robinson, 1st Baron Rokeby. Known as the ‘Rokeby Collection’, it is a rare example of an 18th-century intact print collection in institutional hands – still in the building purpose-built to house them and Robinson’s other collections.

The Research Fellow will complete an online catalogue of the entire collection and prepare content for a publication on the history and significance of the collection. He/She will also produce one temporary exhibition in the Library on part of the collection, as well as an external temporary exhibition at another accredited museum.
Salary range: £25,481 (Related to NJC Scale Grade 19)
