£32,004 to £38,183 / £39,324 to £46,924 per annum

Norwich University of the Arts is entering an exciting new phase of development with the launch of a suite of creative Bachelor of Science (BSc) awards in Games Development, Interaction Design and User Experience Design. These awards will complement existing provision in Design and Media and provide students with a strong technical and scientific grounding for their creative endeavours and future careers. To this end, the University is working closely with employers to ensure the courses meet industry expectations and future needs. The three courses will have a shared curriculum in the first year of study. Subject to validation, we anticipate recruiting our first cohort of students in September 2017.

We are now seeking to appoint a Lecturer/Senior Lecturer with the skills and experience to help assist in the development, promotion and delivery of these new awards. The successful candidate will possess a comprehensive knowledge of the technical and creative demands of the award disciplines, with demonstrable skills in software engineering, programming and mathematics, ideally with a games development background and experience of Unreal Engine 4/Blueprint Visual Scripting. You will be able to bring your knowledge and experience of industry standards to the requirements for undergraduate study on BSc awards that are clearly focused on preparing students for professional employment.

The role is an opportunity to be part of the implementation of Creative Science at NUA. As such you will have the ability to deliver technical skills to undergraduate students in a creative, engaging and imaginative way, through project based learning, with the experience to deliver workflow pipelines from inception to deployment.
The successful applicant will demonstrate excellent skills in organisation, with the ability to work independently and as part of a team, and be able to assist the Marketing team to help promote the courses and recruit students. You will also be enthusiastic about collaboration, working in particular with our successful BA (Hons) Games Art and Design course. You will have a grasp of the key areas of learning and teaching as they relate to the awards and will bring with you strong professional relationships with industry contacts.
