Radar actively engages with research and uses it as a stimulus to inform and develop new projects. The programme has a commitment to working with artists whose practice is research based and offers them an opportunity to engage with a broad range of academic work. Audiences are able to engage with ideas and issues both through the artistic outputs and an accompanying series of discursive events. The programme is non gallery based and commissions leading artists to deliver a wide range of projects, from live performance to temporary installations to participatory projects.

Radar has been working in this way for the ten years over which time it has established a reputation for the unique nature of its work as well as the opportunity it provides artists to use the campus as both a space for research as well as a space for production.

We are now seeking to appoint someone with a passion for contemporary art to deliver the future Radar programme. The successful candidate will possess excellent communication skills along with a proven ability to prioritise workloads and meet tight deadlines.

The University offers a range of benefits including pension scheme, professional development, family friendly policies and generous annual leave.
