This post is full time, 35 hours per week and is fixed term for 12 months.
Westminster School of Arts is seeking a Lecturer in Photography to contribute in support of our BA (Hons) Photography course as well as some contribution to other areas of the portfolio including Foundation level and Masters. These reflect the long traditions of photography at Westminster, and are designed to encourage a balance of creative and critical reflections on visual practice and the social and cultural dimensions of the image. This post is fixed term for a 12 month period, and as such would suit applicants seeking an entry level opportunity in a distinguished subject domain at Westminster. It will enable the development of understanding undergraduate level teaching demands, and should also contribute to the development of the School’s provision. Applications are invited from those with expertise and knowledge in contemporary documentary practices as well as non-lens based imaging experience.
The post holder will be expected to support students at all levels, teaching practical photography skills and the professional craft and creative decision-making involved, as well as evaluating practice in relation to current discourses. You should have an interest in a wide range of photographic technologies and techniques, working with academics and technical staff to support learning at all levels.
You may have substantial industry knowledge, of the broader photographic and creative sectors as a designer, historian, picture editor or curator, likely with recent experience of photography scholarship and research to share. You will be expected to encourage the best use and development of our facilities, and to look to share practice across levels of study. This includes contributing to the creation of teaching material and material for online mentoring. As part of your role, you would develop and maintain teaching material using VLE.
You are expected to hold a post-graduate qualification and be seeking to develop a career in Higher Education. A Fellowship of the Higher Education Academy or a PG Cert HE would also be an advantage. Applicants would be expected to commence as early as possible in the academic year.
