They will also undertake an administrative office in the Department to support widening participation, outreach and admissions, to ensure that we attract the best students, regardless of background.
We encourage applications from candidates with specialisms in modern and contemporary art and visual cultures. We are particularly interested in candidates with interests in Black aesthetics and artistic practice or who have a record of engagement with art and visual cultures of the Global South. We also encourage applications from candidates with interests in innovative conceptual approaches and methodologies in art history. These may include critical debates around racism and racialisation; Black aesthetics; migration and diaspora; and/or cross-cultural and cross-regional interactions. Candidates should hold a PhD. Prior experience of teaching at undergraduate level is essential. As London’s Global University, we know that diversity fosters creativity and innovation. We want our community to represent the true diversity of the world’s academic talent. We therefore encourage applications from candidates who have characteristics currently underrepresented in UCL’s academic, research and teaching workforce. These include: people from Black, Asian and ethnic minority backgrounds; disabled, D/deaf and neurodiverse people; LGBTQ+ people; and women (especially in STEM disciplines).
