An exciting opportunity has arisen to expand the Broadcast Production: TV and Radio teaching team within the University of the West of Scotland. We are looking to recruit two Lecturers to contribute to the teaching of our successful undergraduate and post-graduate degrees. We are particularly interested in dynamic, creative and reflective individuals with a proven track record in non-scripted digital production or a developed understanding of media theory as it relates to digital production.

BA (Hons) Broadcast Production: TV and Radio is part of the School of Business and Creative Industries and is accredited by Screenskills in recognition of our ability to develop industry-ready students. Students learn through modules taught by practitioners reflecting current industry ‘best practice’. Expertise across a range of interconnected disciplines is embedded across our range of creative industries programmes.

You will have the skills, knowledge, and experience to play a key role in achieving in teaching, internationalisation, research, and commercial activity. You will play a central role in our Screen and related disciplines primarily contributing to our popular BA (Hons) Broadcast Production : TV and Radio degree. You should have a relevant honors degree and postgraduate qualification and preferably be qualified to PhD level and should have either:

  • A strong practitioner profile in non-scripted digital production and an established network of contacts in the Scottish and international broadcast industry


  • An extensive knowledge of current media theory that makes use of contemporary research methods to critically understand digital output and global platforms.  This would also include conceptualising creative content and analysing how that content addresses audiences both thematically and cognitively.

You will be responsible for contributing to an excellent student experience by planning, developing and delivering an exciting curriculum utilising contemporary forms of pedagogy. You will produce excellent research or practice based outputs commensurate with the stage of your career that will include TV, Radio or multiplatform outputs for broadcast or online distribution. You will be a highly motivated individual, passionate about your discipline and about contributing to the best possible student experience. You will be able to demonstrate a commitment to a successful academic career and be comfortable working both autonomously and within and across a range of teams.
