        Subject: Wellcome Brain Exhibition Research Assistantship

Research Assistant for the Wellcome Brain Exhibition

In spring 2012, the Wellcome Collection is planning to hold an important exhibition on brains at its headquarters in Euston Road, London.  Formed from the bequest of the pharmaceutical entrepreneur Sir Henry Wellcome (1853­–1936), the Wellcome Collection and Trust comprise one of the principal research resources and funds for the medical humanities, art-science interactions, and biomedical sciences in the world. 

The exhibition aims to show the brain as material, structure, and object. It will offer a critically informed enquiry into different ways of understanding, representing and treating this fascinating and complex organ.  A series of live events and discussions around mind-brain relationships will accompany the exhibition.  Dr Marius Kwint, Senior Lecturer in Visual Culture in the School of Art, Design and Media, has been appointed as research consultant to the exhibition.
