We are looking for a dynamic and ambitious academic practitioner/ researcher to lead and coordinate Cultural Studies for BA Fashion, BA Fashion Communication, BA Jewellery Design and BA Textile Design.

As Cultural Studies Coordinator you will provide a highly stimulating and nurturing environment for students and colleagues alike. You will be responsible for assuring the academic standards of Cultural Studies and its delivery through your academic leadership and the effective management of resources.

You will develop the vision and strategic thinking for Cultural Studies to shape the design, development and future of the Cultural Studies curriculum and play a leading role in managing the Cultural Studies Course team.

Central Saint Martins is a world-leading centre for arts and design education. Its reputation stems from the creative energy of its staff and students and the stellar achievements of its graduates nationally and internationally. The nine programmes at CSM explore the boundaries of their discipline. Students and staff are continually alert to new ideas, and are curious and restless in developing beyond the expected norms of their subject, so emerging work is at the forefront of its area. CSM sits at the heart of London’s creative scene, and of one of Europe’s most dynamic new culture and innovation quarters at King’s Cross, making the college increasingly important to London’s cultural life, and indicative of our general desire to open up CSM to as broad an audience as possible. 

As an innovative researcher and academic, you’ll be regarded as a leading authority within your own area. You will have an in depth understanding and personal experience of the relationship of Cultural Studies with one or more of the following areas - Fashion, Fashion Communication, Jewellery and Textile Design, both nationally and internationally.

As an experienced, creative and highly motivated academic, with an inventive approach to the enlivenment of students’ learning experience and high aspirations for their achievement, you’ll be able to take up the challenges of enabling diverse student cohorts to explore the discipline of Cultural Studies at Central Saint Martins, and foster new approaches to teaching, knowledge exchange and research.

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.
