We have opportunities for lecturers in Museum Studies and Historical Archaeology

Lecturer in Museum Studies

The Department of Archaeology is seeking applications from candidates for the position of Lecturer in Museum Studies, to join a community providing a supportive, enthusiastic, and challenging academic atmosphere in which all our staff and students are able to achieve their full potential. The role will ideally commence on the 1st September 2021. 

You will ideally have expertise in Museum Studies and Cultural Heritage Management, but we are also interested in additional expertise, for instance public benefit, building, conservation, digital heritage, sustainability or decolonisation. Your main duties and responsibilities will include:

  • Development and leadership of postgraduate taught programmes in Museums Studies
  • Teaching at undergraduate and postgraduate levels
  • Development of teaching materials on the Virtual Learning Environment (Blackboard VLE)
  • Contribution to the management, administration and organisation of the department

 

The appointment can be made on either a Teaching and Research (T&R), or a Teaching and Scholarship (T&S) contract, both of which have the same opportunities for promotion:

 

  • T&R contracts typically include 40% of time directed towards research activities with clear expectations for delivery of 3* and 4* publications for REF and successful grant applications
  • T&S contracts typically include 15% of time directed towards scholarship activities such as keeping up to date on the subject area and developing teaching  practice/innovations for example. 

 

You should clearly indicate your contract preference in your application. 

 

The role is full time. However, we are happy to consider applications for flexible working arrangements or job shares. 

We particularly encourage applications from black and minority ethnic candidates, who are currently under-represented within the Department.
