You will be an inspirational Fine Art practitioner, with emerging/developing research profile; which may include practice/pedagogic research and/or publications in Fine Art or related fields. You will have experience of offering quality teaching, assessment, feedback to a diverse range of students at HE Level.

You will be capable of leading and delivering modules, undertaking all aspects of assessment and feedback as well as inputting into the strategic direction of the department as part of a collegiate conversation.
You will be a great collaborator, who enjoys working within diverse teams, and as such you will value timely and thoughtful communications and good organisation. You will enjoy working with colleagues from across the school’s disciplines. Research, and knowledge exchange are integral, and you will be engaged in active research challenges, from developing proposals to producing outputs for dissemination.
You will use your experience and networks to contribute to the delivery of professional practice, imparting practical, creative skills for future careers. If you haven’t already achieved the relevant level of UKPSF recognition, we’ll need you to do so before the end of your 18-month probation period.
Fine Art at Kingston offers a dynamic, exploratory environment, in which coalition and nurturing of communities is key. Many of our courses are newly validated, which means we are fresh, ambitious, and innovative. Fine Art students benefit from links with grass roots, alumni-led, and national museums, and journals.
The School of Arts is different to the classic art school/humanities model. Staff and students are encouraged to think creatively and intellectually while creating through writing and practice. With rich and varied courses, it is a collaborative and constructive place to work. Students are sought after throughout the creative industries, with many pursuing networking opportunities with some of our partners within the creative industries.
Kingston University values the diversity of its student and staff body. We actively support and encourage applications from underrepresented communities.
