The Department of History of Art at the University of York seeks to appoint a 0.5 fte Associate Lecturer in History of Art for a 6 month period from January-June 2023, to allow academic staff time to work on the University’s programme of Modularisation and Semesterisation.

The Department of History of Art is one of the largest and most dynamic communities of art historians in the UK, with seventeen research-active colleagues who cover all periods from late antiquity to the present. We teach approximately 180 undergraduate, 40 Masters and 80 PhD students, who follow a broad range of programmes, including our recently established BA in Curating and Art History, supported by a friendly atmosphere, small-group teaching methods, regular study trips, and spectacular historic locations. Our Masters students registered 93% and our undergraduates 89% overall satisfaction in the most recent surveys. The Department has initiated a number of innovative partnerships with museums, galleries, and heritage organisations (including the National Gallery, Tate, the Victoria and Albert Museum, York Museums Trust, York Minster, and the Yorkshire Country House Partnership), which are coordinated through York Art History Collaborations. The Department has a strong commitment to the study of medieval art and is an active participant in the University of York’s Centre for Medieval Studies, one of the world’s leading centres for postgraduate study and research into the Middle Ages.
