About the Australian Museum
The Australian Museum (AM) is located on the traditional lands of the Gadigal people of the Eora nation. The AM 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 AM operates within the NSW Department of Premier and Cabinet and was founded in 1827 and is 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 mission is to ignite wonder, inspire debate and drive change.
It’s an exciting time to work within the AM’s education team as we work towards delivering two new initiatives. The first initiative will inform the development of new in-exhibition programs and the second is a new learning space informed by First Nations knowledge systems and the Australian Museum’s own scientific research. We’re after an energetic and talented educator to join our team and lead key learning projects.
