The appointment will be made at Lecturer grade 8, with start point varying according to experience and qualifications.

The post will offer the successful candidate the opportunity to teach in our undergraduate curriculum, to play a key role in its development in shaping content and structure and to work closely with the student cohort. The candidate will be expected to show the ability to teach experimental creative digital arts with a diverse range of media such as (but not limited to) video, audio, animation, mixed media, interactive and web-based art. The technical ability to deliver training in software for developing digital arts is essential.

The successful applicant will have the opportunity to work closely with senior colleagues in the Department of Media Arts and the School of Performing and Digital Arts in a period of exciting development for the College.

They should have been awarded a PhD in a relevant field or show significant practical artistic or industry success commensurate with the highest level of academic study. In addition, the candidate’s demonstration of an ability or willingness to teach a combination of both theoretical and practical elements of digital arts.
