The Royal College of Art is the only entirely postgraduate institution of university status dedicated to research and knowledge exchange, teaching and practice in art, design, communication and humanities.  Its international reputation for excellence in teaching, research and employability has been recognised for three successive years by the highly regarded QS World Ranking survey, with the College rated the world's number one art and design University in 2015, 2016 and 2017.
The new School of Arts & Humanities brings together programmes and research previously located in the Schools of Fine Art, Humanities and Materials, in order to enhance opportunities for collaboration and interdisciplinary activity and to enrich the experience of our students and researchers. Contemporary Art Practice, with its studio-based pathways in Critical Practice, Moving Image, Performance and Public Sphere is a new programme that launched in September 2016. The programme marks an historic moment at the RCA, seeing an extension in our range of specialisms, in both material terms and also in how we consider our approach to history and tradition.
The RCA is seeking a recognised practitioner in the field of Contemporary Art and specifically Critical Practice, with an international reputation supported by a portfolio of art work, exhibitions, academic research and publications.  The successful candidate will be critically informed and ambitious for the work of the College in developing the Contemporary Art Practice programme and graduates internationally and will also understand the changing nature of higher education in an international and UK context.  They will have an energy and enthusiasm for the student experience, and be able to work well across teams within the RCA and the School of Arts & Humanities. 
With a degree in a relevant specialism and a doctorate in a relevant field, or evidence of appropriate professional practice or academic achievement, the successful candidate will have evidence of the ability to supervise academic work at masters and doctoral level.  It is also essential that applicants have evidence, or clear potential to, consistently produce research outputs of at least 3* REF quality.
