Position: Wellcome Library Wikimedian in Residence

Incurably curious? Interested in the history of medicine? Know a bit about Wikipedia?

Would you like to work with us on a fantastic new project and be our Wikimedian in Residence?

Building on our previous projects with Wikimedia UK and our commitment to share our fantastic collections as widely as possible, we’re now looking for a Wikimedian in Residence to help us make that happen.

Wikipedia is one of the world’s most popular websites, and is often the first place people look for content about subjects covered by our collections. That’s why we want to make the content on Wikipedia as rich and comprehensive as we possibly can.

Our collections cover so much more than the history of medicine – essentially life, death and everything in between, so there’s huge potential for improving the content on Wikipedia. We’ll also be looking at enriching other Wikimedia projects.

The Wikimedian will work with us on the project to help develop areas of Wikipedia covered by our amazing holdings. We’d love you to help us to make our world-renowned collections, knowledge and expertise here at the Wellcome Library even more accessible.
