The Department of History of Art at Birkbeck is expanding, and is looking to appoint internationally established scholars to help lead growth in areas of excellence. As part of this expansion, the Department invites applications for a permanent senior academic post in the History and Theory of Architecture. This will underpin the expansion of our current portfolio of taught programmes, research initiatives (including funded research), collaborations with external organisations and public engagement initiatives. Applications are welcome from scholars working in any period of architectural history, from medieval through to contemporary.
The successful candidate for this post will have a track record of internationally-recognised research, including successful grant bids as well as published work of a calibre which meets the standards of the Research Excellence Framework, and clear plans for future research. They will be able fully to contribute to undergraduate and postgraduate teaching and programme development, undertake senior administrative duties, and be prepared to work collaboratively with colleagues across the School.
