Job: Courtauld needs Lecturer in Dress and Textiles

Lecturer in Dress and Textiles, The Courtauld Institute of Art, University of London

“The Courtauld Institute of Art is the UK’s leading institution for teaching and research into the History of Art and the conservation of paintings, and has a distinguished history of scholarship and teaching in the History of Dress.

The Courtauld Institute of Art seeks to appoint a permanent full-time lecturer from September 2009. This appointment requires a familiarity with current debates in the cultural study of dress and textiles, and an active engagement with the theoretical dimensions of the subject. The post-holder will be required to teach on the BA Programme at the Courtauld Institute, offering courses focusing on dress and/or textiles that complement, enhance and extend the current teaching of primarily European and American art, and will also be expected to devise and teach a specialist topic at MA level. The capacity to offer this MA course in the historical period before 1850 will be an advantage, though the post-holder’s own research interests may encompass later developments.

We are looking for a scholar who will in due course attract PhD students of the highest calibre and who will maintain the Courtauld’s reputation as a premier research institute.”
