Senior Lecturer in Drama, Theatre and Performance

University of Huddersfield - School of Music, Humanities & Media

An opportunity has arisen for a Senior Lecturer in Drama, Theatre, and Performance at the University of Huddersfield.  The team delivers a suite of undergraduate practice and theory modules and supervises postgraduate research. We are looking for a colleague who is able to teach, can supervise PGR projects, and will be able to make a significant contribution to REF2021.

The team seeks to understand the processes of drama, theatre and performance in terms of the tension between theory and practice. We offer the students a solid academic grounding in the discipline as well as the opportunity to explore and examine a wide range of creative processes, and to develop skills in areas of drama and performance practice. This may take place in either our excellent studio spaces or the wider context of the community. You will be required to teach large, medium and small groups of students, to take responsibility for the running of modules and to contribute to curriculum design.

Drama also benefits from the team’s active involvement in areas of professional practice, and from collaborations both with the local arts community, and with practitioners working both nationally and internationally.

This post will contribute in an area of practice that complements and enhances the strengths of the existing team.  It is expected that all members of the team should be able to direct student productions, and supervise both undergraduate and PGR practical projects.
