Part Time




£45,002 - £50,306 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 markets, 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.

Reporting directly to the Head of Programme, the Tutor (Research) Menswear will support the integration of research activity, industrial projects and curriculum development relevant to the philosophy of the programme. The role will further include assisting on the development of new course elements, co-ordinating external projects, research funding bid development, and promoting the programme through exhibitions and other dissemination activities. The role holder will also be expected to encourage critical design thinking and research.

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 doctorate in a relevant field or evidence of appropriate professional practice or academic achievement and completion of research supervision training are essential.
