Preference may be given to candidates who are qualified to teach one of the following: Art and the Ocean: Aesthetics, Materiality, and Ecology, ca. 1500-1800 and Images and Knowledge in Early Modern Europe. We may also consider candidates whose specialisms lie elsewhere in the period before 1800 and are prepared to teach a different module from the existing course catalogue, which includes a range of options in medieval and early modern European and Islamic art, as well as Art of the Ming and Qing Dynasties from a Global Perspective. You will also be required to contribute lectures and tutorials on our first-year survey module. There will also be an opportunity to work with postgraduates, particularly teaching M.Litt. classes.

Like other members of the School, you will be expected to take on light administrative tasks as required by the Head of School.
