[ecrea] Lecturer A/B in Arts Management at Birkbeck, University of London

Mon Feb 04 14:12:57 GMT 2013

An exciting opportunity has arisen for an ambitious, independent, and highly motivated individual in the Department of Media and Cultural Studies with a vacancy for a Lecturer A/B in Arts Management. Our preference is for a scholar with teaching and research interests in critical perspectives on marketing in the arts and creative industries, but applications from scholars across Arts Management and adjacent disciplines are encouraged.
Working with a team, you will be responsible for directing and developing of one of our existing Arts Management programmes, and as such you must have relevant experience of running programmes or projects either in the academic or cultural sectors. You should be able to use a range of delivery techniques to inspire and engage students in teaching practical skills, methods and critical perspectives.

Candidate Requirements

You should have a good first degree and have ideally completed, or be near to completion of, a PhD in a relevant subject area, and show evidence of published research or exceptional potential. The ability to attract external funding, and a research agenda which is well-positioned in relation to one of a number of fields which are likely to attract increased academic and broader interest in the medium term, are highly desirable. The ability and willingness to contribute to the department's courses in Media and Cultural Studies is a plus.
