The University of Manchester Presidential Academic Fellowship for Non-Western or Global Art History
Creative, ambitious and keen to develop transformative research, you will relish this excellent opportunity to drive your academic career to a higher level. As an impressive early career academic, you’ll recognise that securing a Presidential Academic Fellowship at the University of Manchester will empower you to unlock your potential. In addition to a good salary for the duration of your Fellowship, you’ll receive several thousand pounds per annum for research support costs and access to key technology platforms. Your time during this award will be initially dedicated to research, with no or minimal teaching in the first year, and minimal teaching in the second year. Thereafter teaching would increase with each subsequent year of the fellowship. You can look forward to mentoring and assistance in winning external funding and awards.
As a Presidential Academic Fellow, you will join one of the UK’s foremost art history departments. Strongly interdisciplinary, we have close ties to the Institute for Cultural Practices, to other disciplines and research centres across the University, and to a wide range of museums, galleries and venues across the city’s award-winning cultural sector. With a specialism in any area of non-Western or global art history, you’ll contribute new areas of expertise to the study of the arts and cultural heritage. Along the way, we’ll encourage you to develop collaborative links with our partners in Manchester’s creative sector, including the University’s own thriving cultural assets.
