This is a full time academic post available in 3D Digital Art at Liverpool School of Art & Design. Located within the School of Art & Design at Liverpool John Moores University, and reporting to the Director, you will draw upon your experience and practice in art-science collaboration to devise a programme of research and Teaching & Learning opportunities to advance the profile of the university.
In particular, you will be expected to lead the development of a STEAM foundation programme and act as programme leader for the MA Art in Science. The post requires a high level of creative knowledge across the relevant areas of art-science, as well as a solid understanding of current and emerging digital and 3D technologies. You will work closely with Liverpool Fab Lab and the 3D Digital Art Studio in the John Lennon Art & Design Building to develop and provide additional public engagement activity, outreach and research impact.
Art and Science are often seen as two different entities with very separate ideas of what constitutes research. The MA Art in Science at Liverpool School of Art and Design aims to bring together artists and scientists to explore collaborative approaches in Art and Science research and practice. From anatomy to algorithms, pixels to performance, science to semiotics, the programme supports creative curiosity, in partnership with experts across the University and beyond.
This is an innovative programme, collaboratively developed with academic experts across a number of disciplines that include: Art and Design, Sports Science, Public Health, Evolutionary Anthropology, Astrophysics, Technology and Museum Practice. Students have access to a number of different established research centres across Liverpool John Moores University in order to explore the relationship between art and science, including the historical and theoretical connections between art and science as cultures and practices, and understand how these ideas translate into contemporary experiences. Liverpool School of Art and Design offers a unique collaborative environment for all postgraduate students.
Informal enquiries may be made to Professor Caroline Wilkinson email: firstname.lastname@example.org
