College of Humanities
Programme for Art History and Visual Culture
The University of Exeter is a Russell Group University in the top one percent of institutions globally. In the last few years we have invested strategically to deliver more than GBP 350 million worth of new facilities across our campuses with plans for another GBP 330 million of investment between now and 2016. The College wishes to recruit a Lecturer in Art History and Visual Culture in any period from the 17th to the 20th centuries (Education and Scholarship) to teach and grade core modules at all levels in the Programme for Art History and Visual Culture, as well as tutoring responsibilities, and supervising undergraduate dissertations. This part time (50% FTE) post is available from 1st September 2015 until 31st August 2016.
The successful applicant will possess sufficient breadth or depth of specialist and core knowledge in the discipline, demonstrated by a PhD (completed or nearing completion) or equivalent in Art History and/or Visual Culture to develop teaching programmes, and teach and support learning in this academic area. They will use a range of delivery techniques to enthuse and engage students. They will participate in and develop external networks, for example to contribute to student recruitment, secure student placements, facilitate outreach work, generate income, obtain consultancy projects, or build relationships for future activities.
The successful applicant will have evidence of excellent teaching identified by peer review and have made an impact at discipline programme level beyond their own teaching. The applicant will also demonstrate a strong background in both art history and visual culture, and feel comfortable moving between these interlocking realms of our programme. We would be especially interested in candidates adopting cross-cultural approaches, and demonstrating an historical focus that can forge connections with other members of the programme and related departments in the College of Humanities. Staff at this level are expected to work towards Fellow of the HEA status and to attend formal CPD relating to this.
