The Liverpool Screen School seeks a highly motivated individual to work in the Film Studies department, with expertise and experience in fiction filmmaking.

The Liverpool Screen School, part of LJMU's Faculty of Arts, Professional and Social Studies, offers undergraduate programmes in Creative Writing, Drama, Film Studies, Journalism and Media Production, together with postgraduate courses in Film, Documentary, Immersive Arts, Creative Technology, International Journalism, Writing and Screenwriting.

The team currently comprises eight members of staff, all of whom are research and/or professionally active and play a part in delivering undergraduate and postgraduate programmes.

The Film Studies Programme at LJMU offers a hybrid model with all students undertaking theoretical/critical modules alongside practical filmmaking. The department is developing its strategic priorities in research, postgraduate provision, internationalisation, public engagement and enterprise activity.

The city boasts a vibrant culture and LJMU is proud of its many connections with local media and arts organisations, including Liverpool Film Office, Lime Pictures, ITV and the BBC The Everyman and Playhouse, The Unity Theatre, The Royal Court Theatre, The Liverpool Philharmonic and The Liverpool Tate.
