About the job
Category: Academic | Faculty/Office: Faculty of Architecture, Computing and Humanities | Department/Division: Creative Professions & Digital Arts | Campus: Avery Hill campus | Closing Date: 19 Oct 2014 |
The Department of Creative Professions and Digital Arts is seeking a Lecturer/Senior Lecturer in Post-Production. You will be part of the team that delivers film, animation and television programmes and courses in the fields of digital media, animation, film, digital art practice and TV. The Department has a strong commitment to widening participation, diversity and internationalism and this is reflected in our staff and student profiles.
Post-production has emerged within our programmes as a discipline in its own right, indicating a shift away from studio practice and recognition of the need to organise and manage workflows as well as mastering a broad range of specialist software and hardware. This post is intended to augment our existing provision and enhance the range of creative practice that depends on post-production techniques. You should havea strong practical background, experience of having the public engage with your work, and a desire to support students at all levels to achieve their aspirations in this area. You shouldbe excited by the challenge of contributing to our broad range of digital practice in art and design, the opportunity of working with colleagues from other disciplines to shape our provision as it develops in new courses, and to influence the way in which we think about post-production as a creative endeavour.
The position offers opportunities for research and teaching at undergraduate and postgraduate levels. The Department has a strong profile for study in the Creative Industries, and our research emphasis is on the use of digital technologies for creative practice. The post is suitable for a candidate with a PhD (or close to completion) looking to develop their career in post-production, noting the importance of maintaining contacts in the industry. We are especially interested in hearing from candidates who can contribute to the Department's student employability strategy and develop research and enterprise activity for the School within their specialist field.The Department has recently moved to new facilities at Stockwell Street, which include significant new post-production facilities.
The Department also runs a large collaborative operation, with programmes of study being offered by partner centres around the world. You would be expected to contribute to the teaching of courses both on-campus and at collaborative centres, developing high quality teaching resources to be offered through a VLE (such as Moodle).
