Appel à candidature : « Lecturer in Art History/ Visual Studies (University of Manchester, UK) »

We are seeking to appoint a specialist in European or non-European art
in the period from 1700 to the present.

Art History & Visual Studies at Manchester maintains close research and
teaching ties with the Whitworth Art Gallery, which this appointment is
expected to enhance. Already a drawcard for art history students, the
Whitworth is about to undergo a spectacular £12 million Heritage
Lottery-funded refurbishment, with a major expansion of teaching
facilities. In response to the needs of our students, we have also
developed a strand of teaching within our undergraduate curriculum on
the history of collecting and display. It is expected that the
appointee will discover ways of engaging with the Whitworth and its
rich collections, and make a contribution to teaching in these areas.

In addition to your primary specialism, you should have (or be willing
to develop) an interest in some aspect of the history of exhibitions,
display or collecting. You should have a PhD by the start date of the
post, evidence of strong research potential, and be committed to
teaching at all levels.

The post is permanent and is available from 1 September 2012 or as soon
as possible thereafter.

Salary: £32,751 to £45,336.
