The Wolverhampton School of Art is seeking to appoint a 0.5 permanent Lecturer in Contextual Studies for Fine Art and Photography. You will be responsible for teaching across all levels of our practice-based Fine Art and Photography programmes and may be required to contribute to other areas of student support across the School of Art.


You should be an excellent teacher with experience of teaching contextual studies to practitioners in Higher Education. You would preferably possess a professional teaching qualification or be willing to work towards this. You will have at least a Master’s degree in a relevant field  (or equivalent) and have researched or worked professionally in Fine Art and Photography with an emphasis on contemporary practice. You must have some experience of practice, either as an artist or photographer, through collaboration with such, or through previous teaching experience. You should have a passion for working with practitioners and encouraging them to explore academic forms of research and writing, as well as the creation of other less traditional forms of text. You will be keen to seek inspiring relationships between theory and practice and possess an enthusiasm that inspires confidence and builds rapport with University colleagues.
