Post-doctoral Research Fellow
2 Years fixed term contract
Part time, 0.5 FTE
The Centre for Drawing
Why choose us?
University of the Arts London is a vibrant world centre for innovation, drawing together six Colleges with international reputations in art, design, fashion, communication and performing arts.
Every position within the University plays an important part in shaping future creative professionals, and impacts on the future of so many creative industries. You will get to be a part of this future by transferring your specialist knowledge on to other keen creatives whilst developing your own skills.
Set to start during summer 2012, the Rootstein Hopkins Research Fellowship is dedicated to exploring the role of drawing in planning the 2012 Olympics. It will be based at Chelsea College of Art and Design and has the potential to make a significant contribution to British arts and culture.
Join us in this position and you will undertake research investigations in collaboration with (and supervised by) the Rootstein Hopkins Chair of Drawing. You will provide a snapshot of how drawing was used across a broad range of areas of creative thinking during the decade leading up to the 2012 Olympics, reviewing the widest possible variety of drawing material. You will then have the chance to produce papers summarising your research findings for publication, a co-authored book/catalogue and an exhibition.
An articulate postgraduate, you have a PhD in Fine Art, Design, Computer Science, Architecture, Urban Planning or another related area of study. You will be used to sharing your knowledge and have built a solid record of achievement in research. Above all, you must have a genuine interest in drawing as a cross-disciplinary subject and the enthusiasm to become an active member of our Centre for Drawing, developing research links with other institutions and industry.
In return, University of the Arts London offers generous leave, a final salary pension and a commitment to your continuing personal development and training in an environment that encourages excellence, creativity and diversity. Relocation assistance is available.
