The University of Huddersfield is looking to appoint a dynamic and experienced Lecturer or Senior Lecturer to our Contemporary Art and Illustration course.

Professional practice is also featured as part of this delivery.
You will have knowledge and understanding of the historical and theoretical approaches to art and illustration, but equally embrace new and emerging concepts and ideas to help carry the courses forward in pioneering ways.

You will be joining a dedicated, passionate and forward-thinking team.
With a Masters or PhD in an appropriate subject area, you should have an excellent and active portfolio of outputs to be considered for the forthcoming REF. There is a strong research ethos in the Department from a range of histories, theories and practices of art and design, to which you will contribute.
In addition to your application, you will be required to submit a digital portfolio of your work with your application and a teaching plan detailing some of the concepts/contexts/themes you might introduce into the curriculum.
