Senior Lecturer in Moving Image (0.7 full-time equivalent)
Your passion and strengths in teaching, design and leadership and your professional and dynamic academic attributes will be welcome in our School of Media which is located in the creative heart of Brighton.
Our BA in Moving Image course is a practice-based degree focused on film and the area of Artists' Moving Image. Students on the course engage in a variety of experimental practices that explore the potential of the medium on the screen, within the gallery space, in site-specific installations and across a range of media. Interdisciplinary approaches to the medium are encouraged. The focus of the course is oriented around a fine art ethos although graduates' destinations are equally in the commercial world of the moving image as well as in the gallery space. The course comprises both practice-based, historical and critical studies modules and we are interested in applications from candidates with strengths in either or both areas of teaching. Also in particular, but not limited to, new media technologies or contemporary theory in artists' moving image.
Responsibilities for the post includes teaching practice based modules, course leadership, course development and design, course administration and organisation, quality assurance, admissions, student retention and contributing to the research culture of the university.
You will be committed to continuous professional development and will be able to demonstrate a strong research record in either practice or theory and experience of module management and delivery. Strong communication and organisational skills are also key to success in this role, as is the ability to inspire staff and students, proactively build a successful course team and the ability to critically review and to find creative solutions in response to a rapidly changing undergraduate sector.
