About the Australian Museum
It’s an exciting time to work for the Australian Museum (AM) as we prepare to reopen to the public later this year following our major renovation, Project Discover.
The Australian Museum is located on the traditional homelands of the Gadigal people of the Eora nation. The Australian Museum acknowledges the Gadigal people as the Traditional Owners and custodians of the land, sky and waterways, paying respect to Elders past, present and emerging.
The Australian Museum (AM) operates within the NSW Department of Premier and Cabinet and was founded in 1827 as the first museum in Australia. The AM provides access, engagement, and scientific research to increase our understanding of natural history and culture, particularly of the Australasian region. The AM holds more than 21 million objects of biological, geological and cultural collections and develops programs, exhibitions and school and community education initiatives onsite, online and offsite. The AM’s vision is to be a leading voice for the richness of life, the earth, and culture in Australia and the Pacific.

The AM supports a diverse workforce and promotes applications from people who are First Nation Australians. People with disabilities who meet the selection criteria are encouraged to apply; and where required, the Australian Museum will implement reasonable adjustment consistent with industry standard.
