Applications are invited for Guaranteed Hours (GH) contracts for tutors in the History of Art at University of Edinburgh for the courses History of Art 1A: Art and Belief in Europe, 500 to 1700 (semester 1) and History of Art 1B: Art at the Crossroads of World Cultures, 500 to 1700 (semester 2).
Applicants should be familiar with the methods, theories and historiography of art history (and/or related disciplines) and committed to sharing them through passionate teaching. We especially encourage applicants with a background in History of Art, Visual Culture and Architectural History or affiliated disciplines to apply. The successful candidate may be enrolled on a PhD, within their maximum period of study, or may have completed their PhD studies, and/or have a proven record of teaching undergraduate students in the context of a University degree course.
Tutors prepare for and deliver weekly, in-person tutorials that run alongside course lectures. The direct teaching (contact) is minimum nine hours per semester, per tutorial group. Each group consists, on average, of 12 students. Tutors will have some flexibility in devising and leading teaching activities, but a programme of work co-ordinated with the course syllabus is provided.
Tutors are responsible for monitoring and assessing students’ progress on the course via two or three assessments per student (one formative and two summative).
Tutorials are in person. Ideally, we would like candidates who are available to teach both courses.
Follow the link included with this announcement to apply. CV and a cover letter required. Closing date 2 June. Interviews will be conducted mid-June.
