The Department of Creative Professions and Digital Arts (CPDA) is seeking a Lecturer/Senior Lecturer in Cinematography to support our Film and Television provision. Based in the state-of-the-art Stockwell Street Building, CPDA has excellent facilities, a talented staff, award-winning student film makers and a strong research culture. As well as being situated adjacent to the Old Royal Naval College, one of the most popular filming locations in the world, Stockwell Street houses up-to-date equipment, professional studio and editing facilities and is support by an outstanding technical team.

The Post:You will have industry experience working as a cinematographer and have a passion and enthusiasm for teaching students as well as an interest in practice-based research. You will be expected to support Film & TV students at all levels and have an interest in technical theory and its application.  You will also be able to understand a wide range of cameras and support students in their use, run practical hands-on cinematography and filmmaking sessions and have knowledge of routes into industry for our film and TV students. This post will focus on students from our BSc Digital Film Production and MSc Film Production programmes, and so will suit someone committed to seeing the technical challenges of Film and Television as creative opportunities. You will have a strong technical background and be highly knowledgeable about the changing digital environment in FTV.

The post is suitable for a candidate with either a PhD, near completion or evidence of the capacity to complete one. You should have a research agenda and be looking to develop your career in Film and Television education, noting the importance of maintaining and extending contacts with the industry.

Key areas of expertise/research/engagement required are:

  • Contribution to the Department’s student employability strategy;
  • Challenging the prevailing demographics and working practices of the FTV industry;
  • Supporting student knowledge of the creative technical aspects of film and television through the BSc;
  • Technical understanding of new and emerging technologies and their impact (and potential impact) on the creative process.

In this role you will be expected to contribute to discussions about our technical resources and curriculum design issues in conjunction with technical and academic staff, from the perspective of digital production, and to encourage the best use and continuous improvement of our facilities in the Stockwell Street building. This includes contributing to the development of teaching material, using a VLE and case studies for courses taught on campus and also at collaborative centres to provide a rich set of resources in this area.
