The History of Art department is seeking to appoint a full-time lecturer in the History of Art and Material Studies. UCL offers a unique single honours History of Art and Material Studies degree with a strong component of lab-based/workshop orientated work for students wishing to explore issues of materiality, technique, technical analysis and object based enquiry as well as associated theoretical, historical and ethical questions.
We welcome applications from people with a PhD or equivalent, as well as significant experience in some aspect of the areas described above. Applicants from the fields of conservation (of any medium including architecture and the built environment), technical art history and material analysis, would be particularly welcome. An interest in developing lab-based/workshop orientated teaching in these areas is essential. Additional experience in collection management, curatorial practice, studio practice or cultural heritage would be an advantage. The successful candidate would join a thriving department with close links to London’s museum and gallery networks and in a university with its own important collections. They would contribute to teaching, take on administrative responsibility, be research active and generate research income by actively pursuing and applying for appropriate research grants.
