We are a world class research-intensive university. We deliver teaching and learning of the highest quality. We play a leading role in economic, social and cultural development of the Northeast of England. Attracting and retaining high-calibre people is fundamental to our continued success.

The Role
We wish to appoint a 1.0 FTE Lecturer in Contemporary Art Curation. Based both in Fine Art and Media Culture Heritage (MCH), which are part of the School of Arts and Cultures, your primary role will be to contribute to the delivery, development and administration of the BA Fine Art and MFA programmes and to build collaborations between these programmes and the MA/PGDip in Art Museum and Gallery Studies based in Media, Culture, Heritage (MCH). In particular, we are keen for the post holder to develop and deliver teaching about contemporary art curation in both departments. You should be responsive to the particular nature of teaching students specialising in contemporary Fine Art practice and students who are interested in curating.

We are looking for someone who can build on and help expand our current teaching provision and research in Fine Art and MCH. We are seeking a talented individual from within the field of contemporary art curation, who is passionate about their specialist area of research, questioning and inventive in their approach to teaching and who would also enjoy working collaboratively to contribute to broader team-taught modules. We are also looking for an individual who has the practical skills, knowledge and experience to work with our students to curate exhibitions.

We are looking for an inclusive approach to the teaching of contemporary art curation, and you should be able to demonstrate an awareness of contemporary critical issues in the field globally. Applicants must demonstrate (through formal or informal actions) a commitment to equality, diversity, inclusion and widening participation in their spheres of work.

It is expected that you will have a PhD and experience of teaching at university level, or commensurate experience in contemporary art curation. You will be expected to show evidence of existing and planned publications (or equivalent), and to demonstrate a clear research trajectory that will contribute to a successful future REF submission. You will be expected to show evidence of a track record of collaborating on external grants or a willingness to develop this.

The 1.0 FTE post is open-ended from January 2022, or earlier if possible.
