Teaching Fellow (Computer Animation Arts)    

Salary £34,956- £41,709 pro rata, 21 hours per week

The School wishes to appoint a Teaching Fellow with responsibility for teaching traditional drawing and art to students on our new Computer Animation Arts degree.  An interest in animation would be an advantage.

Our taught programmes are focused on practice with recent graduates working in studios or founding small businesses.  The School’s research is organised into a close community of industry-focused inter-disciplinary research groups such as the Centre for Interactive Creative Technologies. 

Experience in still life and figurative drawing is essential.  It would be desirable to also have some experience of drawing in an animation context such as storyboarding, character design or concept art. Your experience will demonstrate a commitment to high quality education.

The job would entail development of teaching material, assessment and module administration of drawing and art modules as well as involvement in other aspects of the use of drawing and illustration within the degree.

Experience of work in the animation industry (full-time or part-time in a studio, or freelance) would be a bonus.

The successful candidate should possess an honours degree in an appropriate discipline or have significant industry experience.  It is expected that the post holder would continue to develop his/her skills in drawing and art in an animation context.

Highly developed communication and influencing skills and the ability to motivate, engage and inspire staff and students are essential to the role, as is the ability to work collegiately, fostering team spirit and sharing expertise.

Candidates are expected to demonstrate their skills by portfolio, preferably in an electronic format.
