Lecturer / Senior Lecturer BA (Hons) Illustration 0.8 FTE

British Higher School of Art and Design - Moscow, Russia

It is a fantastic time to study and teach Illustration. Increasingly, illustrators are developing highly individual practices, relishing the opportunity to work internationally, and to explore experimental and personal agendas in tandem with commercial projects. We believe that BA (Hons) Illustration at BHSAD is a pioneering course that shares this ethos and is steadily building a vibrant, creative illustration community in Moscow. 

We are looking to appoint a talented lecturer / senior lecturer to join and further support the ambitions of the BA (Hons) Illustration team, and to continue the high quality provision that the programme has been recognised for to date. 

Since the introduction of the BA (Hons) Illustration programme 13 years ago, the course has gained both local and international recognition for its innovative and forward thinking graduates. The course has established strong international links and annually participates in a number of high profile live projects and events that further enhance and enrich the curriculum and student experience. 

Our alumni are ambassadors for change and embrace the responsibility to challenge, re-define and further establish the Russian Illustration industry and its profile both in Moscow and internationally. 

The geographic and educational context of studying a British Art & Design degree in Moscow is central to the dynamism and spirit of the degree programmes at BHSAD. As with all of our undergraduate Degree provision, the BA (Hons) Illustration programme is accredited by our partner institution, The University of Hertfordshire. This position presents the opportunity to join and contribute to a vibrant and dynamic school of Art and Design based in the centre of Moscow that has been at the forefront of Art & Design education in Russia since its inception in 2003.
