The role

The Department of History of Art at the University of Bristol seeks to appoint a Lecturer in Visual Arts and Cultural Heritage.  We seek a colleague specializing in any area of art history/visual and material culture from the medieval period to the present day with expertise in curation, museology and related fields. The post-holder will make substantial contributions to the department’s curatorial units, including those taught in partnership with cultural institutions. This forms part of the department’s strategic programme of practice-based teaching that provides curatorial training with collections as well as innovative forms of digital mediation in the arts and heritage sector.

The post-holder will expand the Department’s areas of strength and play a full part in the research culture of the School and the Faculty of Arts. Current priorities at School and Faculty level include the decolonization of our teaching and research, the development of our degree programmes in Comparative Cultures (including Liberal Arts), and engagement with the creative, cultural and heritage sectors. We foster postgraduate and post-doctoral research of the highest quality, and we are committed to developing the research activities of individual members of staff. We offer pro-active support to ensure that colleagues make an appropriate career progression.

What will you be doing?

The successful candidate will be expected to contribute fully to the undergraduate and postgraduate teaching programmes of the Department of History of Art. They will pursue active collaborations with cultural institutions beyond the university for the purposes of research and teaching. The successful candidate will assume responsibility for an appropriate share of administration at department, School and Faculty level as appropriate to their experience and career level.

You should apply if

The successful applicant will have a strong, well-developed research profile beyond doctoral level (or equivalent professional experience) that engages with visual culture and issues of cultural heritage/museology, along with an established record of, or evidence of the potential for, high-quality publishing and external grant capture. They will have experience of undergraduate and postgraduate teaching. They will have a record of leadership in research and teaching commensurate with their career stage.

The Department of History of Art combines excellence in teaching with a lively research culture. Our key research areas are:

  • Modern North American/European (including British and Russian) art/architecture/visual culture
  • Medieval and early Renaissance European art/architecture/visual culture
  • Modern diasporic visual culture
  • Modern and contemporary South Asian art/visual culture
