The result of the 2008 Research Assessment Exercise confirms Exeter's position as one of the UK's leading research-intensive universities. Almost 90% of our research is at internationally recognised levels and every single subject submitted included world-leading (4*) research. When adjusted for the 95% of staff submitted, Exeter ranks among the top 15 in the UK for research out of 159 higher education institutions. The Times Higher Education described Exeter as 'a rising star among research-intensive institutions'.
In the last (2008) Research Assessment Exercise, Drama returned 35% of research in the top 4* category, with 95% of research in Drama ranked as internationally competitive. Drama has had notable success in achieving external research income, including several large AHRC awards, and a high success rate in Creative Fellow and Academic Fellowship awards as well as workshop and practice-based Research Council projects. We foster a strong culture of peer support in relation to staff research, and we currently host three Research Centres within the Drama Department: the Centre for Contemporary Performance Practices; the Centre for Performance, Sciences and Community; and the Centre for Performance Histories and Cultures.
For forty-four years, the University of Exeter has been a pioneer in practice-led Drama within the HE sector. Since 2004, the Department has undergone a major expansion, with an additional new building erected on our Thornlea site as the major part of an investment of GBP 3.7 million, and an accompanying increase in undergraduate, postgraduate students, as well as in academic staff numbers. This represents a major investment by the University, providing state-of-the-art facilities to compare with any in the country. Exeter Drama has performed consistently highly in the NSS, and currently ranks first, based on the average percentage of positive responses across all survey categories for full service universities.
The post of Lecturer in Chinese/East Asian Theatre/Drama will contribute to extending the research profile of Drama at Exeter.
