Originating in 1843 as one of Britain's first specialist schools for industrial artists and designers, the Sheffield Institute of Arts (SIA) has an impressive heritage - with a forward looking ethos. Our vision is to be known as one of the top UK art and design schools worldwide.

Now we have an eye-catching new home that befits our ambitions. Part of a £9m investment, the grade II listed Head Post Office provides a unique and progressive teaching, learning and research environment for staff and students.

As Head of the Department of Art and Design, you'll provide leadership and vision at this exciting stage in our development.

We're also looking for someone with:

  • Strong academic leadership skills.
  • A significant personal academic profile.

Ideally you'll also have a PhD in a relevant field, although this isn't essential.
