1.0 FTE Senior Lecturer (and Academic Course Leader) for BA Fine Art

University of Gloucestershire - School of Art & Design

The University of Gloucestershire is looking to appoint a dynamic, experienced and inspirational Senior Lecturer, who dependent on level of experience will contribute to or take the BA Fine Art course forward at a time of growth and development. 

The successful applicant will be a practising artist with a national (international) profile in relation to fine art and a depth of knowledge and understanding of current and historic trends in fine art.  You will also have a track record of enhancement and innovation in relation to pedagogy and developing the student experience.

You will also lead the BA Fine Art course which is part of the School of Art & Design’s portfolio of undergraduate taught courses which includes courses in Illustration and Photography as well as a broad range of Design subjects.  Applicants will also lecture into undergraduate and postgraduate courses.

The Fine Art undergraduate course is a studio practice based course and embeds contextual understanding and theory within its curriculum as well as a strong focus upon professional development to encourage collaborative and sustainable practice.  The school has a research focus around practice as research taking in contemporary fine art practice in its broadest sense. Alongside our undergraduate Fine Art course we offer full and part-time postgraduate courses leading to MA, M.Phil and PhD awards.

We will consider candidates from a broad range of Fine Art disciplines.  You will need to be skilled in teaching and supporting students at undergraduate level, as well as postgraduate level, and will be expected to contribute to research in the school toward the REF 2020 exercise, and also the supervision of MPhil/PhD students. Experience of course-leadership and/or curricular development, and substantial experience of teaching will be considered an advantage.
