Closes: 1st June 2022
This is an exciting opportunity to join our thriving History of Art community and gain valuable teaching and administrative experience at the undergraduate and graduate levels. Although this is primarily a teaching and administrative role, you will also engage in advanced study and conduct independent research and play an active role in the interdisciplinary Christ Church academic community. The post is intended to fill a gap in our teaching coverage while Professor Geraldine Johnson is on leave. This is a joint appointment in association with Christ Church.
You will be responsible for overseeing the organisation of History of Art teaching at Christ Church (including undergraduate admissions) and will have academic/pastoral responsibility for undergraduate art historians at Christ Church. The key teaching requirement will be to cover core History of Art departmental courses, including BA courses on theory and methodology. You will also be asked to contribute lectures and guest classes in other departmental courses and to participate in relevant tutorial teaching and supervision.
You will contribute to an academic community that places the highest value on rigorous inquiry and encourages a range of perspectives, experiences, and ideas to inform and stimulate intellectual challenge, engagement, and exchange.
Whilst in post, you will be assigned a mentor, a senior member of the Department or the History Faculty. In addition, the History Faculty provides support for early career and other researchers, including assistance in the preparation and submission of grant and fellowship applications through the Faculty Research Director and Research Development Officer.
The post is fixed term for one year and is tenable from 1st October 2022.
You will have research and teaching interests in the history of art, broadly defined, and will be able to teach courses on the theories and methodologies of art history. We are particularly interested in candidates who can bring innovation to the way art history is conceived and practiced.
You will be able to inspire and enthuse students and draw on your own research to inform and augment your teaching.
You will have a completed doctorate in a relevant field, or evidence that a doctorate is close to completion.
Applications are particularly welcome from women, from disabled people and from people of Black, Asian and minority ethnic backgrounds, as these groups are currently under-represented in academic posts in Oxford.
For an informal discussion about this role, please contact Professor Geoffrey Batchen at email@example.com.
You will be required to complete a supporting statement, setting out how you meet the selection criteria, curriculum vitae and the names and contact details of two referees as part of your online application.
The deadline for applications is 12.00 noon on Wednesday 1st June 2022.
Only applications submitted online and received before noon 1st June 2022 can be considered
