ScARF is hiring! Could you be our Museums Project Officer?

The ScARF project is looking to recruit a Museum Project Officer (part time) to work specifically in collaboration with Local Authority museums services in Aberdeenshire and Orkney.

The project will focus on supporting curators within partner museums to develop and inform their knowledge of the national and regional research relevant to their collections. This will highlight research gaps and begin the process of encouraging new research in these areas, engaging education with museums. Using Farming and Fishing as the main theme, the project will engage new audiences with Scottish archaeology and build on the already strong support for ScARF within the historic environment sector. It will also contribute to the development of regional frameworks more targeted at local chronological or thematic issues that will enable museums to use and amplify ScARF and introduce a more nuanced use of the framework ensuring it is up-to-date and fit-for-purpose. 

The deadline for applications is the 27th of March.

Regional research frameworks: update
Since the last newsletter, which mentioned that ScARF was looking to do more work with regional archaeology frameworks, we have attended a meeting in East Lothian to discuss the ongoing work being done in the Edinburgh, Lothians and Borders regions as well as continued our discussions with Kilmartin Museum on setting up a research framework for Argyll

So, if you work within local authority archaeology or are involved in any regional archaeological research, please get in touch if you have an idea you would like to discuss or would like more information on how ScARF might be able to help.
