Neuroscience Researcher
Salem, MA
Peabody Essex Museum
Description:
The mission of the Peabody Essex Museum is to create experiences of art, culture, and creative expression that transform people’s lives by broadening their perspectives, knowledge, and appreciation of themselves and the world. We have long been committed to innovation in the presentation and interpretation of art and this commitment has led to an entirely new strategy for greatly enhancing the impact of the art museum experience—tapping new knowledge derived from the neurosciences to design art experiences. Some recent examples embedded in our exhibitions include employing emotive stories; multi-sensory experience, interpretive information in unusual forms; interactive experiences; use of surprise in the design. Application of select neuroscience information to art museum experience design is entirely new; there are no models to draw upon. We have received a grant to fund a Neuroscience Research position to scan current neuroscience findings relevant to art experience design and to summarize this information in a readily understandable form. This is a full-time, term position through December, 2017.
Under the direction of the Director and CEO, you will consult with the PEM Neuroscience Team and the Neuroscience Advisory Board to:
Identify and research relevant neuroscience research information for consideration by the PEM Neuroscience Team and the Neuroscience Advisory Board in 2017.
Summarize the information in language and concepts readily understandable by museum professionals with a non-science background.
Consult with the PEM Neuroscience Team and Advisory Board to identify application of this information to art experience design
Organize the information in ways that will permit print and online publication of the information.
Work closely with the rest of team to share findings, ensure full comprehension of concepts, clarify and answer questions or find further resources as the team begins to design audience experiences for exhibition planning and installation.
Participate in evaluation activities carried out following exhibitions that employ information drawn from the neurosciences and related fields.
Qualifications:
If you have excellent research experience and skills, preferably in neuroscience or related fields, a broad understanding of neuroscience disciplines, and passion for the arts we want you to apply for this position and contribute to the groundbreaking work we do at PEM. You will need the ability to work at a fast pace without losing focus, the ability to translate complex technical concepts into vernacular language, and top notch writing skills. We expect you to be a self-starter and work independently as well as with an interdisciplinary team of museum professionals. We prefer that you have a MA or PhD in neuroscience or a closely related field.
How To Apply:
Please submit your resumes with cover letter and salary requirements by email to jobs@pem.org, or apply via regular mail to Human Resources, Peabody Essex Museum, East India Square, Salem, MA 01970-3783.
