Vacancy Description
School of Art History, Salary: £38,511 - £47,328 per annum, Start: 1 September 2015 or as soon as possible thereafter
We are seeking to appoint two Lecturers in the History of Art. Applications are invited from candidates whose research interests lie in any area of art history (including non-Western art). Applicants from the museum and gallery sector are also encouraged to apply.

You should already have or be close to completing a Ph.D.  You should be able to provide evidence of your research abilities in the form of publications of internationally-recognised quality as well as a programme of on-going research that will contribute to our reputation as one of the leading Art History departments in the UK (we were ranked 2nd among Art History departments in REF 2014). Other indications of research activity (e.g. grants awarded, conference papers delivered, exhibitions organised) will also be taken into account, as will evidence that your research has had or will have an impact beyond academia.

You will be expected to offer attractive, undergraduate courses on aspects of the history of art within your area of expertise. You will also be required to contribute lectures on our first and/or second-year survey modules: ‘European Art and Architecture in the Seventeenth and Eighteenth Centuries’, ‘The History and Theory of European, Art, Architecture and Design from the French Revolution to Vienna 1900’, and ‘Art, Culture and Politics from 1900 to Now’. Working with postgraduates, both teaching M.Litt. classes and supervising Ph.D. research, will also be a vital part of your role.

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

Informal enquiries can be directed to: Professor Brendan Cassidy: 01334 462370 or bfc1@st-andrews.ac.uk

Applications are particularly welcome from women who are under-represented in Arts posts at the University.
