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 North East of England. Attracting and retaining high-calibre people is fundamental to our continued success.
The School of Arts and Cultures wishes to appoint a Reader to work and lead within the subject area Media, Culture, Heritage (MCH). This is an exciting opportunity to develop innovative approaches to research, teaching and sector/industry engagement in the UK and internationally within a collegial and supportive work environment.
Are you a passionate and experienced researcher who builds bridges across disciplines, and who can see opportunities to work collaboratively within and across our School Research Groups? Does your research inform your teaching, and are you passionate about communicating its importance to your students and the next generation of researchers through post-graduate supervision?
You will be working with a dynamic and committed team of colleagues and external cultural partners to build on and complement MCH's diverse research, teaching, and industry-facing strengths — particularly in relation to its internationally renowned suite of MA degrees in museum studies, art curation and heritage.
You will be expected to lead on the shaping and delivery of our masters programme in Global Heritage Management (forthcoming 2024). You will specifically bring experience and expertise in establishing international networks and collaborations for teaching and research. You will be expected to be involved in all aspects of teaching, including co-supervising PhD students, supervising student dissertations, creative group work projects, acting as personal tutor, and academic administration across Media, Culture, Heritage. You will have strong interest in developing our partnerships and collaborations with external bodies to enhance students' experience and employability.
