About Anglia Ruskin University:
Anglia Ruskin is a vibrant workplace and our University is gaining prominence both nationally and internationally. We have ambitious plans for the future and we are determined that our students and staff will realise their full potential. Our main campuses in the cities of Cambridge, Chelmsford and Peterborough have been transformed with major capital investment. With an annual turnover of over £200m, we are a major force for higher education and one of the largest universities in the East of England. About the role:
The Faculty of Arts, Law and Social Sciences is home to first class teaching and research across a wide range of both traditional and contemporary disciplines. All of our courses are committed to the mutual reinforcement of theory and practice, and are grounded in our academics’ innovative and internationally recognised research.
We are now seeking to appoint a committed and dedicated academic to lead and teach on our internationally renowned MA course in Children’s Book Illustration, with the opportunity to further develop it in terms of both curriculum and related research. The course, established in 2001, based in the Cambridge School of Art, now recruits students from all over the world, and has strong links to the Children’s Publishing industry. Many of its graduates have gone on to become major names in Children’s Book Illustration.
We welcome applications from a range of different backgrounds for this important post. You may be a research active academic in Illustration (preferably with a PhD or Professional Doctorate). Alternatively, you may be a professional Children’s Book Illustrator with some teaching experience at HE level. Most importantly, with a professional and/or research profile commensurate with the stage of your career, you’ll also have the organisational skills and the vision required to co-ordinate this exceptional course and lead it into the future. A fractional 0.8 FTE appointment may be considered, for a practising illustrator who wishes to remain professionally active in their field.
For an informal discussion, please contact Chris Owen, Head of Cambridge School of Art, at [email protected]
Interviews are expected to take place on Monday 9th October.
