Now is a truly exciting time to join our dynamic and forward-looking institution; we represent a new breed of university, a fast-growing, gold-rated university where staff and students work collaboratively and create world-changing knowledge and research. We offer our staff simply a life changing opportunity.
The School of Fine & Performing Arts at the University of Lincoln is seeking to appoint a Lecturer in Dance (0.5 FTE) to teach across both the BA (Hons) Dance and MA Choreography and Performance Practices programmes.
As a new member of staff at the University of Lincoln, the successful candidate will be situated within the School of Fine & Performing Arts, part of the College of Arts. The School currently offers Undergraduate programmes in Dance, Drama & Theatre, Fine Art, Music, and Technical Theatre & Stage Management, alongside a suite of M-level programmes and MPhil/PhD opportunities. The School of Fine & Performing Arts resources include the Lincoln Performing Arts Centre, which includes rehearsal studios and a 444-seat public theatre venue. The School has a growing reputation of international dimensions and a rich legacy of developing small-scale theatre and performance groups who tour their work to regional venues, community clients, and national festivals.
The University of Lincoln’s BA (Hons) Dance degree and MA Choreography and Performance practices programme has an industry-designed curriculum which links the theoretical and academic study of dance with the practical and creative disciplines of technique, choreography, performance, teaching and researching dance following an ethos of learning through doing. As a Lecturer in Dance, your primary duties will be to teach and assess student work across a range of both undergraduate and postgraduate practical and theoretical modules. You will have experience of working in two or more of these areas: Dance Technique, Choreography, or Dance Theory at both undergraduate and postgraduate level. You will be expected to fulfil the role’s minimum requirements in professional practice, to fulfil appropriate administrative and recruitment duties, and contribute to the programme's extra-curricular provision.
Appointed on a Teaching, Scholarship and Professional Practice (TSPP) profile, colleagues would be expected to contribute to ongoing scholarly activity and pedagogic development, as well as pursue (where applicable) a professionally facing practice and/or developing productive connections to the professional sector.
