About the Museum of Literature Ireland

A partnership between UCD and the National Library, the Museum of Literature Ireland (MoLI) is a new landmark cultural institution in the heart of Ireland's capital city. Picturesquely located on the southside of St Stephen's Green, the museum draws inspiration from the work of Ireland's most famous writer James Joyce, as well as celebrating our internationally-renowned literary culture and heritage, inspiring the next generation to create, read and write. Immersive multimedia and interactive exhibitions on James Joyce and other influential Irish writers, lecture and performance spaces, temporary exhibitions, house and garden tours, a bookshop and garden-level café are set in the spectacular architectural heritage of UCD's Newman House and its beautiful green surroundings. These public facilities are seamlessly integrated into a stunning suite of refurbished seminar and reception rooms available for small group conferences, meetings and board events, making the museum a truly unique and highly attractive proposition for international visitors and locals alike.

About the Role

We are looking for a passionate and energetic digital professional to serve as Digital Media Manager in the most significant new addition to Ireland's cultural landscape. This is a role that involves a pre-opening period of 6 months, and offers a rare and exciting opportunity to help build the digital media function of a major cultural institution from the ground up. The digital media department sits at the heart of the museum, operating both as a "digital museum within the museum" (programming primarily online exhibitions, commissioning new artistic work and projects from digitally-native artists etc), and as a significant influence on the curatorial practice of the ‘physical' museum.

Our vision for Digital@MoLI is to create a truly boundary-pushing and digitally native team within the museum, promoting a shared "digital mindset", exploring new technologies in collaboration with leading tech companies and academics, developing new audiences and bringing digital content to those audiences ‘where they are', while further realising the artistic and literary potential of the digital space in a manner that is both exciting, open, iconoclastic, accessible and democratic.
