Lecturer in Cultural Heritage and Museum Studies

University of East Anglia

The School of Art, Media, and American Studies is recruiting a new lecturer to diversify its provision in the areas of cultural heritage and museum studies.

Candidates are sought with professional backgrounds in the heritage or museum sectors. Experience of working on exhibitions, heritage projects and strategic planning would be an advantage.

A track record in research and grant capture appropriate to the level of this post in one or more of the following areas would be particularly welcomed: European or British Modernism, including sculpture, architecture, design, or crafts.

The successful candidate will make a significant contribution to the School’s REF2021 submission and will help to develop and deliver the curriculum for our undergraduate and postgraduate courses – primarily the BA in History of Art with Gallery and Museum Studies and the MA in Cultural Heritage and Museum Studies.

The post will also involve working in partnership with the world-renowned Sainsbury Centre for the Visual Arts (SCVA), the Sainsbury Research Unit (SRU), and the Sainsbury Institute for the Study of Japanese Arts and Culture (SISJAC).

This full-time, indefinite post is available from 1 September 2019 or as soon as possible thereafter.

The School of Art, Media, and American Studies is seeking to promote an equitable representation of men and women among its staff, and the School encourages applications from women and those from minority ethnic groups. Appointment will be made on merit.
