Part Time




£53,202 - £59,534 per annum pro rata

The Royal College of Art is the UK’s only entirely postgraduate art and design university. In 2017/18 the College has some 2,000 students registered for MA, MRes, MPhil and PhD degrees and over 400 full- and part-time academic, technical and administrative staff.

The School of Design engages with design on multiple levels: as a cultural and societal activity, and as an innovation process where design can deliver new products, new services and new ways of running or creating businesses – or even new ways of doing business. The Fashion programme is developing its philosophy to embrace the complexity of its constituent disciplines with a new vision of the landscapes and directions afforded by contemporary thinking and practice in the arena of fashion and identity. This will encompass approaches ranging from the craft of tailoring to the technological challenges of bio-synthetic skins and both virtual and augmented positioning.

The successful candidate will be responsible for the planning and delivery of the Fashion programme focused, but not exclusively, towards the specialism of Menswear, in consultation with other Senior Tutors and the Head of Programme. The role will support the integration of research activity, industrial projects and curriculum development relevant to the philosophy of the programme. The role will also assist the development of new course elements, co-ordinate external projects, research funding bid development, and promote the programme through exhibitions and other dissemination activities. The post holder is expected to be research active and maintain a high-level research profile.

Applicants should have substantial knowledge of emerging and existing technologies that are relevant to the horizons of fashion and identity today and knowledge of research/practice within and adjacent to these fields most relevant to fashion design identity. A first degree in a relevant specialism and a doctorate in a relevant field or evidence of appropriate professional practice or academic achievement and completion of research supervision training are essential.
