The Edinburgh College of Art, part of the University of Edinburgh since 2011, is seeking a lecturer in glass, a part-time position that involves “a significant portion” of the program’s teaching to both undergrad and graduate students. According to the college’s Website, the glass curriculum is “student-led” and study is “based on personal areas of practice and research.” According to the official job posting, the position “will involve preparing, scheduling and delivering lectures, workshops, seminars, tutorials, overseeing course administration, and the setting and assessing of assignments.” The job is only open to those who are permitted to work in the United Kingdom. The deadline to apply is March 28, so those interested will need to act quickly.

The job listing states: “You will be a motivated practitioner, educated in a discipline pertinent to Glass and will have an in-depth knowledge of at least one of the key skills: glass blowing, kiln forming, architectural process and casting. These skills will be evidenced by appropriate academic achievement, and, ideally, an element of international contextual experience. You will also have some experience of teaching and be able to demonstrate the ability to develop teaching techniques for the delivery of key skills. The teaching will be at Undergraduate and Postgraduate (masters) level. The post-holder will provide student support across at least the range of areas mentioned above.”
