The School of Humanities at the University of Dundee is seeking to appoint a Lecturer in Creative Practice to support and develop existing research and teaching strategies in this area. Experience in practice based research and teaching is an essential criterion. Areas of practice that the School is concentrating upon include creative writing, comics, film (particularly documentary filmmaking), and theatre, although other areas will be considered.
The successful applicant will be involved in teaching and assessing Undergraduate and Postgraduate students, and will contribute to the School’s priorities in research and scholarship. They will be closely involved with the design and running of a new Masters course in Creative Practice and the development and delivery of undergraduate courses with a similar focus. Experience of managing placements and internships would be valuable.
A completed PhD is expected, as is an established research profile with identifiable outcomes and achievements, and the ability to contribute to the upcoming Research Excellence Framework evaluation.
The School of Humanities expands the understanding of the world’s culture and creativity through critical reflection and practice in history, literature, drama, continental philosophy, film, creative writing, comics and graphic novels, modern languages, and archival study. It attracts over 1000 students across these disciplines, working closely with various Schools across the University, and notably Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design (DJCAD). The School prides itself on its research-driven commitment to promoting the critical understanding of culture and society through interdisciplinary work. This is organised around our research centres, which come under the umbrella of the Arts and Humanities Research Institute (AHRI). The School draws upon the culture within the city of Dundee and has created strong links with the local community and institutions through its strong programme of public engagement and partnership based projects.
The staff within the School are deeply committed to inspiring students to reach their potential. The successful applicant should be prepared to join a proactive team seeking to transform student lives so that they can then go on to transform and influence others within society.
