The Faculty of Engineering at Victoria University of Wellington is seeking to hire a new member of our computer graphics teaching and research team.

This is a rare opportunity to develop your academic career in a collegial and collaborative environment at the heart of New Zealand's nexus of industry, research and government sectors.

Wellington's landscape and lifestyle, along with Victoria University's standing as the top research institute in New Zealand and in the top 2% worldwide, means that this position is an outstanding combination of academic opportunity and work/life balance. The Faculty's strategic direction and commitment to collaborative, inter-disciplinary and globally impactful academic work will mean that early-career and mid-career academics will be able to enhance both their research and teaching portfolios.

We are committed to combining research excellence with innovative and motivating teaching, maintain strong local connections with world-class companies such as Weta Digital, and we are also developing a new Institute for Computational Media, Innovation and Entrepreneurship.

Come and join a collaborative and growing team in computer graphics teaching and research led by Professor Neil Dodgson, and combine your passion for knowledge with a life in one of the world's most desirable countries to live in.

The appointment will be at the level of Lecturer or Senior Lecturer (equivalent to a US Assistant Professor or Associate Professor) and will be for a fixed term of four years. All areas of computer graphics are of interest, but applications are particularly welcome from people with interests in real-time 3D computer graphics.
