We are looking for a researcher-teacher-practitioner to join the course team of MA Culture, Criticism and Curation. Founded in 2012, MA CCC works intensively with students to develop creative and critical curatorial practices through research, collaboration and innovative forms of exhibition-making. We position curating as a means of developing agency as well as knowledge and skills, for individuals and communities to be able to make genuine contributions to the world, intellectually, socially and economically.

As Course Tutor you will contribute to the delivery of academic standards. You will help maintain stimulating and nurturing learning and research environments for students and colleagues alike. You will actively link cultures and methods of research to practice, and practice to research. You will help build the international reputation of the course and enhance professional, academic and research partnerships. 

In this 1-yr fixed term role, the post-holder will contribute to a strategic priority to develop the course’s curriculum in terms of diversity, internationalism and digital technology.

University of the Arts London is a vibrant world centre for innovation, drawing together six Colleges with international reputations in art, design, fashion, communication and performing arts.

The reputation of Central Saint Martins stems from the creative energy of its staff and students and the stellar achievements of its graduates nationally and internationally. Students and staff are continually alert to fresh challenge; they are curious and restless in developing beyond the expected norms of their subject and discipline.  

The family of courses in the Culture and Enterprise Programme are active in developing innovative courses which open up Higher Education to a global audience. Our students graduate into careers which cross national boundaries, time zones and cultures. We work to preserve and enhance the diversity of student experience, and to develop in our students the empathy and soft skills that have been identified by the World Economic Forum as critical for success in the next decade.

Candidates should have a strong record of teaching, research and professional practice in their subject specialism. A postgraduate qualification in curating, history of art and design and/or cultural studies and analysis is essential (PhD desirable). You will have experience as a curator or project manager in the public and/or private sectors; of curriculum development; and you may be an inspired and innovative teacher. 

In return, University of the Arts London offers generous leave, an attractive pension and a commitment to your continuing personal development and training in an environment that encourages excellence, creativity and diversity. Relocation assistance is available.
