Post Doctoral Teaching Fellow in Art History

We are looking to appoint a postdoctoral teaching fellow in Art History, who will undertake teaching on the undergraduate programme in Fine Art and a new pathway being developed in Art and Design History, as well as the MA in Art History and Curating.  Candidates should ideally have experience of working with museums or a practical and/or research interest in art history and curating.

In terms of teaching experience, applicants should have a proven record of curriculum delivery and development, especially in the enrichment of existing modules by research. The Department places emphasis on teaching that is research-led. Though these are Post Doctoral Teaching Fellowships the new Fellow would be welcome, and indeed encouraged, to make a contribution to a range of research activities within the Faculty and to develop her/his research profile within the overall research culture that exists in the Faculty. The Faculty will also fund the Fellow, subject to conditions, in delivering a paper at one national conference (subject to a maximum overall cost approved by the Dean but not normally more than £500). Moreover, members of the department play an active role in supporting where appropriate CPD, enterprise and outreach activities.

The salary is £29,972. This post is available with effect from September 2011 or as soon as possible thereafter and will last until 30 June 2012.
