Associate Professor Tutorial Fellow Post at LMH in Fine Art with the Ruskin School of Art

Number of posts: 2

Combined University and College salary: £52,815 to £70,918 per annum, plus college benefits

Vacancy Reference: 169588

The Ruskin School of Art together with Lady Margaret Hall and St Anne’s College seek to make two senior appointments of outstanding practice-led researchers (artist and/or curator) and committed teachers able to inspire students from a variety of backgrounds, from undergraduate to doctoral level. Applications are invited from practitioners of international stature with a commensurate history of exhibition and publication, and a track-record of excellent teaching. The successful candidates will be appointed to an Associate Professorship or full Professorship in Fine Art, and to a tutorial fellowship with Governing Body membership at Lady Margaret Hall (LMH) or at St Anne’s College. As a trustee of a college, each appointee will participate in College governance and administration, and take part in community life. As Tutorial Fellows, the appointees will act as Personal Tutor to undergraduates and as College Advisor to graduates, take part in the admissions process, and contribute to development, outreach and widening participation initiatives.

The area of expertise is open within practice-led contemporary art research. The appointees will need to demonstrate a high level of engagement with the practical, theoretical, curatorial, and educational aspects of contemporary art, as well as an ability to work across the Ruskin School of Art, contributing creatively to its undergraduate and postgraduate programmes, its research profile, and the wider development of the department both within and beyond the University. The appointees will be expected to teach on the School’s undergraduate and Masters’ programmes from the outset, and supervise doctoral students. A doctoral degree and/or an established theoretical or critical dimension to the applicants’ practice may be an advantage. Applications are particularly welcome from women and from black and minority ethnic candidates, who are currently under-represented in academic posts within the University of Oxford. Applicants will be judged on merit, according to their ability to satisfy the selection criteria as outlined in full in the job description.

Each Associate Professor/ Professor will be a member of both the University and the College. They will be part of a lively and intellectually stimulating research community which performs to the highest international levels in research and publications and will have access to the excellent research facilities which Oxford offers. They will have a role to play in the running of the College as a member of the Governing Body and a trustee of the College.
