Senior Tutor (Research) Ceramics & Glass

Royal College of Art - Ceramics & Glass

The Royal College of Art is the only entirely postgraduate institution of university status dedicated to research and knowledge exchange, teaching and practice in art, design, communication and humanities. Located in South Kensington, Battersea and White City, its international reputation for excellence in teaching, research and employability has been recognised for three successive years by the highly regarded QS World Ranking survey, with the College rated the world's number one art and design University in 2015, 2016 and 2017. The College will have some 2,100 students following postgraduate courses in the 2017 – 18 academic year and the staff, both full- and part-time, totals approximately 400.

The new School of Arts & Humanities brings together programmes and research previously located in the Schools of Fine Art, Humanities and Material, in order to enhance opportunities for collaboration and interdisciplinary activity and to enrich the experience of our students and researchers. The School of Arts & Humanities offers students and researchers the opportunity to develop their own practices and careers as artists, makers, historians, theorists, writers and curators.

The spirit of Ceramics & Glass at the RCA springs from the heart of those media, and a belief in the transformative power of material thinking, research and making to enrich our world in imaginative and meaningful ways. The programme is a site for contemporary discourse where personal concerns and global perspectives intersect. We seek those with passion to extend the possibilities and perspectives of ceramics and glass within and beyond traditional limitations, informed by their rich provenance of materials and practices.

The College is seeking to appoint a Senior Tutor in Ceramics & Glass to work three days per week. We are seeking an outstanding practitioner and researcher in the field of Ceramics & Glass to contribute towards the on-going work of the School of Arts & Humanities and the Royal College of Art more broadly. The successful candidate will demonstrate enthusiasm for working with students and alongside colleagues with the high levels of commitment and energy required by a world-leading environment. They will be well networked and demonstrably engaged with the international context of the field, from which they will be prepared to draw for the benefit of the College.

It is essential that the candidate has a first degree in a relevant specialism and holds a postgraduate certificate (PGCert) in higher education and/or is an accredited fellow of the Higher Education Academy, or they must be willing to undertake appropriate training to achieve such within two years of appointment. Candidates must have a proven record of producing research outputs of at least 3* REF quality and a recognised international profile in the field of Ceramics & Glass. Commitment to high quality teaching and fostering a positive learning environment for student and commitment to continuous professional development are also essential.
