Set in the heart of a beautiful, safe and friendly city, the University of Lincoln is a forward-thinking, ambitious institution with high aspirations and a supportive, caring ethos. Named as Modern University of the Year in The Times and Sunday Times, Good University Guide 2021, our core mission is to combine outstanding, high-impact research and professional practice with a superb student experience and the highest quality civic engagement.

We are looking for an Associate Professor with proven experience of leadership in higher education, to champion and enhance the quality of teaching and learning in Design.
