Assistant Professorship in Creative Industries, University of Glasgow

We are seeking to appoint a Lecturer who will join us in building our dynamic new undergraduate programme in Creative Arts and Industries and who conceives of their research and pedagogy within a creative industries framework. Experience of teaching across the cultural/creative industries is essential, although candidates’ research may be specialized in specific sub-sectors. In particular, we welcome interest from scholars working within Global Majority contexts, popular music, games, social media, publishing or other areas that extend, rather than replicate, current staff specialisms in film, the visual arts and cultural policy (although we will consider strong applications of this order as well).

The candidate will undertake research of international excellence and contribute to knowledge exchange activities relative to the discipline, contribute to learning and teaching, primarily on the Creative Arts & Industries programme and undertake administration and service activities in line with the School/College’s strategic objectives.

Salary will be Grade 7, £39,347 – £44,263 per annum.

This post is full time (35 hrs per week) open ended.

Creative Arts and Industries at Glasgow

Launched in 2022, our Creative Arts and Industries undergraduate programme draws strength from its position within the School of Culture & Creative Arts, including through participation from Theatre Studies, Music, History of Art, Film and Television Studies and the Centre for Cultural Policy Research. This robust and vibrant context affords scope for contributing to the School’s various PGT and PGR ventures and research initiatives. We aim for an inclusive, diverse and equitable learning environment for all staff and students. Our teaching is research-led and incorporates a varied range of assignments, collaborative and individual, that imaginatively looks beyond typical essay briefs.
