In the School of Philosophy and Art History, which includes the Interdisciplinary Studies Centre, we are committed to fostering a variety of disciplinary and methodological approaches across the humanities and social sciences. We offer a congenial environment for research and teaching, both of which are carried out with considerable emphasis on collegiality and collaboration. We place our students at the heart of our approach to education, and consistently receive excellent results in National Student Satisfaction surveys.
Duties of the Role
We seek to appoint a full-time ASE (education-focused) Lecturer in Heritage Studies. This is a three-year (34 month), fixed term post replacing a permanent member of staff on research leave. The successful candidate will teach UG and PGT modules in Heritage Studies and related subjects, direct BA and MA courses in Heritage Studies, lead on new course and module development, provide pastoral care, and supervise dissertations.
Skills and qualifications required
Candidates must have, or be close to obtaining, a PhD in Heritage Studies or a closely related discipline. Experience of working independently in teaching at undergraduate and/or postgraduate levels (or demonstrable potential to achieve this) is essential. The appointee will have a commitment to student engagement and learning, as well as a passion for interdisciplinary, research-led teaching.
While the area of expertise within Heritage Studies is open, applications from specialists in the following areas are particularly welcome: digital heritage; critical heritage studies; museum studies; heritage and visual culture; heritage and human rights; heritage and environment/sustainability; heritage and decolonisation.
