The Department of Art History at Sussex enjoys an international reputation for excellence in research and teaching.  Placed third in the 2008 RAE, and consistently ranked among the top departments by the Independent and Times, it is embarking on an ambitious programme of innovative course-design.

In keeping with this strategy, the Department now wishes to appoint a lecturer with expertise in the art of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. The field of specialisation is open, but the Department particularly welcomes candidates with expertise in post-1960s art; photography; digital art; or Cold War art.

Alongside an outstanding publications record, you will have clear plans for future research and generating research income. Experience of, or contacts in, the museums, galleries or the heritage sector may be an advantage.

The successful applicant will be expected to teach on the undergraduate and postgraduate programmes in Art History and in other related academic areas, and to develop undergraduate and postgraduate courses that reflect their areas of research interest within the School of History, Art History and Philosophy, as well as undertaking the whole range of departmental duties.

For an informal discussion please contact Liz James, Acting Head of Department by email on or by telephone on  01273 873611.

Applicants must complete an application form, though they may also attach a letter of interest. Their application should include a full curriculum vitae, giving details of higher education and qualifications, research interests and experience, teaching interests and experience, a list of publications and the names and contact details (including e-mail) of three referees.  Applicants are asked to provide a sample of their recent written work with their application.

Closing date for applications: 4 October 2010
