Professors in Art, Design, Visual Culture or Media 

One of the country’s leading art and design schools, Winchester School of Art is part of the University of Southampton, a Russell Group university and one of the UK’s top ten research universities. We are experiencing an unprecedented period of growth, expanding into new areas of study, while our flexible and dynamic art and design programmes are attracting increased demand. 

The School is expanding its research activities through the appointment of new senior staff. This is an exciting opportunity to join a lively and forward looking School, which prides itself on being an international centre for ideas, with an outstanding reputation in teaching and research. The new Winchester Centre for Global Futures in Art Design & Media (founded 2011 by WSA Professors Ryan Bishop, Jonathan Harris and Bashir Makhoul) is the focus for our research development and you will become a member of the Centre on appointment. 

You will be spearheading ambitious plans for the School’s research activity in terms of grant applications, publications and attracting high quality PhD students, as well as in supporting the School’s enthusiastic engagement with the major themes addressed by the University’s multidisciplinary research strategy.

You should have a PhD, an international research profile and a proven track record of successful and visionary research leadership. You will liaise closely with the Director of Research and Head of School in support of the School’s research objectives. You may bring with you already active research partnership activities with world class non-HEI organisations, research grant income and a cohort of PhD students. You will have a strong and strategic sense of ‘impact’ related activities and links connected to your research and research networks.

You may be a writer, an artist or designer or combine these activities in creative and critical ways.

This role will include some teaching at undergraduate, postgraduate and doctoral level.

You will be joining a successful, highly motivated team, which offers significant opportunities and support for personal development. These appointments coincide with significant expansion of the School’s academic staff in response to growth in programmes and student numbers at under and postgraduate levels.
