Vacancy Reference: 431
At FACT (Foundation for Art and Creative Technology) you will explore and
exploit the on-going and developing impact of digital technology on art,
design, culture and the creative industries. This may include the exploration
of such themes as digital archives, online curating and the meeting of digital
mobile media with the public realm. With opportunities to contribute to an
emerging lab and curatorial projects, you will work with the Artistic Director
of FACT to develop a public platform for the presentation of relevant research
and to ensure that the research informing FACT and generated through its
programme is world class and underpins the thinking and development of FACT.
The LJMU duties of this post will comprise research and teaching in relevant
subject areas at Liverpool School of Art and Design; these include
Architecture, Fashion, Fine Art, Graphic Design and Illustration, History of
Art and Spatial Design. Research in the school is managed under the Art and
Design Research Centre (ADRC) and exists at the forefront of staff and
students' creative practice. Art and Design research has focused on
contemporary issues and ideas in international art and design practice,
curatorial practice and related histories and theories through exhibitions and
publications, conferences, events and fellowships.
Following the successful appointment of Dr Antony Hudek to a post in
partnership with Tate Liverpool, this post has been designed to enhance and
consolidate research in Art and Design between Liverpool School of Art and
Design and another of Liverpool's most significant cultural organisations,
FACT. It supposes a unique opportunity for an exceptional individual to
develop innovative and productive teaching and research activity by exploiting
the synergies between academia and creative industries.
Based between LJMU and FACT, the proportion of time spent in either
organisation will vary depending on seasonal pressures but will roughly be
50/50. In addition to the duties undertaken at each institution you will
facilitate dialogue and collaboration between the other institutions holding
cognate posts (FACT, Liverpool Biennial and Tate Liverpool) and with the
cultural sector more broadly.
Closing date: 16 April 2013
LJMU is committed to achieving of opportunity.
