The School of Creative Arts at the University of Lincoln is seeking to appoint an Early-Career Lecturer in Drama & Theatre. The successful candidate will have an established theatre and performance practice, evidenced through sustained activity in the commercial or subsidised sector, as well as a proven ability in teaching both theatre study and theatre practice, with the potential to contribute to the future direction and curriculum of BA and MA Drama & Theatre at Lincoln. While applications from candidates with specialisms in any area of theatre practice are welcome, we particularly welcome candidates with specialisms in devised/collaborative theatre-making, ensemble performance, performance and new technologies, and directing.
As a new member of staff at the University of Lincoln, the successful candidate will be situated within the School of Creative Arts, part of the College of Arts. The School currently offers Undergraduate programmes in Dance, Drama & Theatre, Fine Art, Music, Musical Theatre, Creative Writing and Technical Theatre & Stage Management, alongside a suite of M-level programmes and MPhil/PhD opportunities. The School of Creative Arts resources include the Lincoln Performing Arts Centre, which includes rehearsal studios and a 444-seat public theatre venue. The School has a growing reputation of international dimensions and a rich legacy of developing small-scale theatre and performance groups who tour their work to regional venues, community clients, and national festivals.
The University of Lincoln’s BA (Hons) Drama & Theatre degree offers students a broad curriculum with mixture of practical exploration, critical enquiry, and vocational activity. You will be part of a team that combines professional practice and specialist expertise with research-led teaching and will be expected to contribute to the School’s excellent research profile, rated above 3* in the recent REF.
As a Lecturer in Drama & Theatre, your primary duties will be to teach and assess student work across a range of practical and theoretical modules. Appointed on a Teaching, Scholarship and Professional Practice (TSPP) profile, colleagues would be expected to contribute to the creative work of the School through professional practice activity, pursue external funding to support these activities, and to develop partnerships for collaboration and consultancy. The successful candidate will fulfil appropriate administrative and recruitment duties, and to contribute to the ongoing growth and development of the School as it relates to the aims of the College of Arts and wider University.
We strive for a diverse workforce with the very best employees and are committed to creating an inclusive environment for all. The University encourages applications from underrepresented groups inclusive of Black, Asian and other minoritised/marginalised ethnic groups, all gender identities and expressions from the LGBT+ community, candidates with a disability, and those that practise different faiths and beliefs, to enhance our One Community where we strive to be kind, patient, and supportive of each other.
