Vacature: Docenten ArtScience Interfaculty

- Deze vacaturetekst is alleen in het Engels gepubliceerd -

The Royal Academy of Art (KABK) and the Royal Conservatoire (KC) together constitute the University of the Arts The Hague (Hogeschool der Kunsten Den Haag / HdK). The HdK offers a wide range of art programmes to around 1800 students, from bachelors, masters, a double degree to PhD options in conjunction with Leiden University. It also provides unique programmes for pupils and students in combination with primary and secondary education. The HdK is located at two sites in the centre of The Hague.

The ArtScience Interfaculty is an experimental programme currently offering a BA and MA/MMs that explores the intersections of the Arts and Sciences, and fosters curiosity driven research as an approach to creating art and producing new forms of knowledge. The interfaculty is located within and between the Royal Academy of Art and the Royal Conservatoire in The Hague.

The ArtScience Interfaculty operates in a vibrant local and regional biotope of academic, engineering, arts & music, ArtScience, and research institutions and initiatives. The interfaculty also interfaces with a growing international network of like-minded institutions and groups. We are in a continuous process of strengthening and deepening the research dimension of ArtScience, challenging the boundaries of both the arts and the sciences, as well as the conceptions informing the field of ArtScience itself.

What will you do?

As part of the ArtScience core team, you will be developing and teaching courses (mostly organised as concentrated workshops of one or two weeks each), coaching students, take part in teachers meetings, student presentations and exams, admission interviews, and discussion on the development of the Interfaculty.

Who are we looking for?

We are seeking new members for our core educational team for the coming academic year (2021 - 2022). For this position we welcome applications from a wide range of professional backgrounds, including music and sound art practitioners, digital and audiovisual media, performance arts, as well as practitioners with a scientific or engineering background exploring the arts – and (ideally) creative thinkers / tinkerers with a dual / hybrid / non-locatable professional identity that intersects all these domains and possibly others. We expect that applicants have experience and affinity with mentoring and working with students.

What do we offer?

The appointment is in first instance for one academic year (2021 – 2022) with the possibility of renewal. The post is classified as scale 11 in the Collective Agreement for Higher Education (CAO-HBO). Furthermore, we offer a holiday allowance of 8% and a fixed year-end bonus of 8.3%; extended paid holiday leave, part of which is to be enjoyed during school holidays; good study and development opportunities.
