Opportunity: Apply for Senior Fellow 2022!

We are pleased to announce applications for the 2022 Senior Fellow role are now open!

The role of Senior Fellow is taken on by a former ITP fellow to help facilitate the Summer Programme. Having participated on the Summer Programme previously you will provide fellows of 2022 with knowledge of the course, of London and our UK partner museums.

The role offers the opportunity to gain further training in the delivery and development of skills-sharing programmes, to reconnect with BM and UK partner colleagues and to make new connections across our global network.

You will be an invaluable member of the ITP team, helping with the logistics and development of the summer programme, offering ideas for our legacy and sustainability projects, and providing support to the ITP team and fellows during the summer.

You will have the chance to assist with developing ideas and strategies for our annual programme (onsite and online e-Learning) and legacy projects. There will be opportunities to further expand your professional network by communicating with colleagues from around the world. You will be able to spend time in the departments of your choice at the British Museum and a visit to at least one UK partner museum, to re-connect with colleagues and develop new relationships.

“I was pleased when I saw some changes in the programme that we had suggested to the Senior Fellow in 2017, and it feels good to be taken into consideration. This experience is revitalising and reassuring for one’s career and future projects.”
Andrea Terron (Guatemala, ITP 2017, Senior Fellow 2018)

“I was very happy to be back and to take part in this amazing experience again as the first time it had helped me a lot to reshape my ideas regarding working as a museum professional.”
