Student increase paints rosy picture for Lincoln

June 9, 2006

Art, design and fashion are in vogue in this week's Times Higher job advertisements.

Lincoln University is looking to fill up to six academic posts at its School of Art and Design as well as a printmaking technician/fellowship.

The posts are a response to growth in student numbers.

The university is advertising for a senior lecturer/programme leader for its BA (Hons) fine art programme and up to two fine art posts at senior lecturer/lecturer level. Lincoln is also looking for a senior lecturer/programme leader for its contemporary decorative arts degree. In addition, it is looking for two part-time lecturers, one in contemporary decorative arts and the other in animation.

Jayne Bingham, head of art at Lincoln, described the printmaking technician/fellow as a hybrid academic-support appointment. The successful candidate will support students and continue to develop his or her own art, culminating in an exhibition in the city's Usher Gallery. The hybrid model may be developed if successful, Ms Bingham said.

Student numbers have grown at the art school since it transferred from De Montfort University some five years ago.

"There is the feeling that we are going places," Ms Bingham said.

Meanwhile, Hertfordshire University is looking for lecturers in 3D design, graphic design and interior design as well as a lecturer/senior lecturer in fashion.
