Department of Media, Culture and Language  

Salary:  £39,081 to £51,253 pa inclusive of London Weighting Allowance 

Applications are invited for a full-time, without-term Lecturer/Senior Lecturer in Digital Media Practice to join our team. We are seeking an individual who can develop the curriculum and teach on our exciting BA Digital Media, launching in autumn 2018.  We are particularly looking for candidates with a track record of working with interactivity, coding, data, or user experience (UX) design (eg for web, mobile or installations). This post is suitable for a candidate who already holds or is near completion of a doctorate, but candidates with substantial professional experience are encouraged to apply. 

Over 70% of our academic staff are research active and the department has a vibrant research culture. Our four research centres in: English Language and Linguistics (CRELL), Film and Audio-visual Cultures (CRFAC), Translation and Transcultural Studies (CRTTS) and Hispanic Research Centre (HRC) are roughly designed around academic programmes, but with growing trans-disciplinary and interdisciplinary awareness. Further information about Media Culture and Languages is available on our website: https://www.roehampton.ac.uk/media-culture-and-language/ 
 
The University of Roehampton is the most research intensive modern university in the UK, with some of the highest regarded academic departments in the country. 
 
This is an exciting time for the university, with investment in new curricula, a new £35m stateof-the-art library and student accommodation, the development of a number of external partnerships across the globe and plans for more doctoral scholarships. 
 
We have a strong emphasis on supporting our students to reach their full potential in order to launch themselves onto successful graduate careers.  We are ranked the best modern university in London in major UK league tables and we are embarking on a radical programme of enhancement in learning and teaching across all our academic areas. 
 
The University has a beautiful, vibrant parkland campus, is located in the heart of south-west London and offers excellent facilities for researching, learning, teaching, and working.
