Lancaster Institute for the Contemporary Arts (LICA) at Lancaster University is seeking to develop its highly-ranked Film Studies programme with the appointment of a new Lecturer in Film Practice.

This post is open to candidates with research and teaching interests in Film. You will contribute to the delivery and development of the existing undergraduate programme and the new postgraduate programme in Film Studies with a specific focus upon the teaching of practice.  You may have industry experience and/or expertise in specialist areas of film production including sound. You will pursue research leading to outputs at a level appropriate for submission to the Research Excellence Framework REF2021 and beyond. You will be encouraged to develop new research collaborations both with colleagues in LICA and the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences and also with colleagues outside the University, which will lead to externally funded research grants. 

We are interested in applications from candidates working in any aspect of film practice, as well as from candidates whose work involves a combination of theory and practice. In particular we would welcome applicants whose teaching and practice addresses issues of gender, sexuality, race and decolonization, along with particular areas of practical expertise.

Informal enquiries are welcome and should be made to Dr Bruce Bennett, Director of Studies, Film, or Prof Judith Mottram, Director, LICA

We welcome applications from people in all diversity groups.
