You will develop high quality research outputs and attract funding to support your developing research agenda. Your research will complement and further develop the School’s existing research strengths in cultural value, participation and engagement, policy and leadership; places, spaces and environments; digital cultures, pedagogies and practices.
You will also contribute to teaching across the School, on undergraduate and postgraduate modules, including lecturing, seminar delivery, dissertation supervision and assessment including our sector-leading and innovative programme in Writing for Performance and Digital Media.
