This is an exciting opportunity to join the Photography Programme within the Media School at London College of Communication, as it goes through significant developments in its approach to the understanding and teaching of photographic practices. 

In 2023, the existing MA Photography course is relaunching with three pathways, in Expanded Photographic Practice, Curation and Publishing. These pathways encourage students to engage with the way photographic images are created, disseminated, encountered and understood. 

The successful applicant will lead a fantastic course team as they develop this hugely successful master’s course into its next iteration. They will be responsible to the Programme Director for innovative course delivery; leading, teaching, assessing, unit management and curriculum development.

In this role, you’ll develop your own scholarship, and research and/or knowledge exchange, and work collaboratively with the Programme team to extend the level of subject expertise and critical understanding of expanded photographic practices.

About you

The successful candidate will be an accomplished researcher, practitioner and/or scholar in the fields of Expanded Photographic Practices and/or Curation and/or Publishing and will bring experience in academic leadership, with a particular focus on postgraduate (taught) delivery.

You will be excited by, and at the forefront of driving changes in the way expanded photographic practices and photographic education are researched, understood and taught. Your research, practice and/or scholarship will respond innovatively to rapid technological innovation and significant changes in the way photographic images are used and understood socially, politically and culturally.

The successful candidate will be an innovative educator with a commitment to the ongoing development of pedagogy as a creative practice, and to promoting diversity and inclusivity in all aspects of their teaching and assessment. Experience of postgraduate teaching will be combined with highly effective interpersonal skills, excellent communication and organisational skills and the ability to work collaboratively with colleagues.
