- Fari Sayeed Visiting Fellow in Islamic Art (closing date 24 March 2014)
- Buildings Manager (closing date 14 March 2014)
Pembroke College, Cambridge, invites applications for an exciting new three-year position of Visiting Fellow in Islamic Art to take effect from 1 October 2014. The successful applicant will be an established scholar in the field, holding a doctorate in a relevant subject and intending to pursue an active and coherent programme of research. At present there is no formal teaching in the field of Islamic Art and Architecture at the University of Cambridge, but both the Department of Middle Eastern Studies (DMES) in the Faculty of Asian and Middle Eastern Studies and the Department of the History of Art (DHA) in the Faculty of Architecture and History of Art are keen to establish dedicated research and teaching in this field. Alongside his or her own research, the Visiting Fellow will be expected to contribute lectures accommodated within the existing framework of courses, and to work with colleagues to devise a programme of joint courses for the future.
Applications are welcome from researchers in any field of Islamic Art, but an emphasis on work that might take advantage of Cambridge’s outstanding holdings of Islamic manuscripts and the Islamic collections in the Fitzwilliam Museum will be an advantage.
The salary, which is pensionable under the Universities Superannuation Scheme, will be on the University Lecturer scale, currently £37,382-£47,314 depending on qualifications and experience. The Visiting Fellow will be elected to a Bye-Fellowship at Pembroke College, and will enjoy dining rights and access to resources associated with membership of the College; generous assistance with accommodation will also be offered. The deadline for applications is 24 March 2014, and it is intended that interviews will be held in April.
We are seeking to appoint a new Buildings Manager, to replace the current incumbent who is retiring this summer.
The post holder will need a strong buildings and maintenance background. He/she will be able to demonstrate good management skills and detailed knowledge of facilities management. A sense of value and priority, as well as of cost, is important to the role.
The primary responsibility of the Buildings Manager is overseeing the maintenance, decor and gradual improvement of the working assets of the College, which comprise around £75m of predominantly Heritage buildings. Currently around 70% of all maintenance spend is subcontracted out piecemeal to a wide variety of contractors, with the balance being done by a small in house team reporting to this position.
The Buildings Manager will be expected to deliver considerable change including implementing an IT maintenance reporting and management system and establishing rolling programs for improvement and renovation. Maintaining and developing the small, friendly and hard-working in-house team is important also.
This important and demanding role carries an attractive package of remuneration with a salary of £45K per annum which could possibly be increased for an exceptional candidate.
