The History of Art Department is looking to appoint a full-time Lecturer (Grade 8) or Associate Professor (Grade 9) in Modernity and its Critical Histories with special emphasis on the built environment. You will conduct research-based teaching and assessment in the specialist field and provide academic support to students, including supervising research at undergraduate and postgraduate levels. You will also carry out research and produce publications or other research outputs, including applying for and participating in grant-funded projects, and take on a share of administrative work.

This is a permanent position that will begin in September 2022.

The Department embraces ideas of the modern that stem from multiple geographies and points of origin. Applications are especially welcome from scholars who engage critically with architecture, design, ecology and the built environment in the cultures of the twentieth century, broadly understood, and whose work interrogates notions of the planetary, space, territory, emplacement, ecology and/or urbanism. While we are open to applications from a range of disciplines, we want to attract those whose work centres on visual and aesthetic questions and who are excited about integrating their research into an art history department.

You must have a PhD in a relevant discipline, specialist knowledge of modernity and its critical histories, and an ability and willingness to engage with current debates in art history. You will conduct high quality research, as reflected in peer reviewed academic publications and other research outputs. You will have the ability to teach and supervise academic work at undergraduate and postgraduate levels, and to disseminate learning and research to a variety of publics. You will have excellent communication and planning skills. Experience of applying for, winning and/or collaborating on grant-funded research projects is desirable. You will be a collaborative colleague and an advocate for equal opportunities.

In addition, for appointment as Associate Professor at Grade 9 you will evidence an international research and publication profile within the specialist field, demonstrate proven leadership and have significant experience of teaching at university level.

Applicants should apply online. To access further details about the position and how to apply please click on the ‘Apply’ button above.
