Who we are
LUCA School of Arts is a multidisciplinary educational and research environment in which creative talent can develop on an artistic, performative and technical level. LUCA promotes the practice of art and creative design as well as the development of innovative insight. LUCA combines the strength and expertise of five renowned institutions on as many campuses: Sint-Lukas Brussel, Narafi Brussel, C-mine Genk, Sint-Lucas Gent and Lemmens Leuven. With over 600 staff members and nearly 3,500 students, LUCA School of Arts is a creative hub for over 4,000 artists, musicians, theatrical and film producers, photographers and designers.
There are two options within the Audiovisual Arts programme at the Sint-Lukas Brussel campus: Film or Animation. The programme is also one of three partners that develop and offer the international, English-language joint Master's in Documentary Filmmaking DocNomads.
The research unit Intermedia coordinates the research on the Sint-Lukas Brussel campus. Intermediality, transhistoricity and narrativity are the main forms of poetics and key domains in the research carried out by the unit. The unit advocates critical awareness of the impact of technological development on artistic practice. It actively explores and supports the presentation of artistic research in exhibition format through the Show Research programme and the Terrarium exhibition room.
LUCA Audiovisual Arts is also part of FilmEU (https://www.filmeu.eu/) in which four European higher education institutions collaborate around the common objective of jointly promoting high-level education, innovation and research activities in the multidisciplinary field of Film and Media Arts. This new partnership will also create international possibilities for research as well as education in Film and Media Arts.
Your assignment consists of providing academic art education, mentoring assignments, artistically-oriented scientific research, and social services. In addition to the academic duties, you may also be assigned organisational, coordinative or administrative tasks.
Your teaching assignment will partially consist of mentoring students with theses or dissertations. Your specific teaching tasks will mainly consist of the following tasks:
- Developing and teaching a Studio Practice course for 3BA students of the option Film (first semester, 9 SP).

This course also functions as a springboard for the students’ Bachelor Film Project;
- Playing a leading role in the coordination of the Bachelor’s Film Project, in collaboration with colleagues;
- Mentoring students in the Master of Audiovisual Arts for their dissertation and/or Graduate Film Project.
The research assignment consists of the development of or collaboration within a research cluster within the domain of the Audiovisual Arts, focused on the campus' research domains. To this end, you will focus on supervising doctorate programmes, postdoctoral programmes and raising external project funding. You will develop a research line by setting up projects in (at least) one of the following key domains of research on the campus: intermediality, transhistoricity and narrativity.
