At FACT (Foundation for Art and Creative Technology) you will explore and exploit the on-going and developing impact of digital technology on art, design, culture and the creative industries. This may include the exploration of such themes as digital archives, online curating and the meeting of digital mobile media with the public realm. With opportunities to contribute to an emerging lab and curatorial projects, you will work with the Artistic Director of FACT to develop a public platform for the presentation of relevant research and to ensure that the research informing FACT and generated through its programme is world class and underpins the thinking and development of FACT.
The LJMU duties of this post will comprise research and teaching in relevant subject areas at Liverpool School of Art and Design; these include Architecture, Fashion, Fine Art, Graphic Design and Illustration, History of Art and Spatial Design. Research in the school is managed under the Art and Design Research Centre (ADRC) and exists at the forefront of staff and students’ creative practice. Art and Design research has focused on contemporary issues and ideas in international art and design practice, curatorial practice and related histories and theories through exhibitions and publications, conferences, events and fellowships.
Following the successful appointment of Dr Antony Hudek to a post in partnership with Tate Liverpool, this post has been designed to enhance and consolidate research in Art and Design between Liverpool School of Art and Design and another of Liverpool's most significant cultural organisations, FACT. It supposes a unique opportunity for an exceptional individual to develop innovative and productive teaching and research activity by exploiting the synergies between academia and creative industries.
Based between LJMU and FACT, the proportion of time spent in either organisation will vary depending on seasonal pressures but will roughly be 50/50. In addition to the duties undertaken at each institution you will facilitate dialogue and collaboration between the other institutions holding cognate posts (FACT, Liverpool Biennial and Tate Liverpool) and with the cultural sector more broadly.
Closing date: 16 April 2013
LJMU is committed to achieving of opportunity.
