P69941 Senior Lecturer/Associate Professor, University of Exeter


College of Humanities

The starting salary will be from £44,045 to £51,034 on Grade G for Senior Lecturer or £57,697 on Grade H for Associate Professor.

We are recruiting a full time permanent Senior Lecturer or Associate Professor in Art History and Visual Culture (E&R). The post will contribute to extending the research profile of Art History and Visual Culture at Exeter, and specifically to lead the new MA (launching in September 2020) International Contemporary Art: Curation and Business. The MA focuses on contemporary art in its international and global perspective, adopting an academically rigorous approach while providing unique opportunities for professional training through a series of significant partnerships in the region and nationally. Direct experience of working in art curation is essential along with the ability to build industry networks. The role is being advertised at 1.0 FTE, from 1st January 2020, however flexibility in the FTE offered is available where this would support continued curatorial activity outside HE.

You will have responsibility for the development and coordination of teaching and learning materials across a range of modules, to include coordinating the contribution of specialist guest speakers and industry professionals to deliver this new programme from our Exeter campus and a London gallery venue. You will be closely involved in the development and delivery of this MA programme, including supporting the student experience, convening and teaching modules, dissertation supervision and managing relationships with partner institutions where the student placements will take place. The post-holder may also contribute to team-taught teaching in Art History and Visual Culture, including supervision of undergraduate final year dissertations and PhDs where appropriate. Candidates should demonstrate a strong background in both art history and visual culture, and feel comfortable moving between these interlocking realms of our programme.
