The University of Plymouth is consistently recognised as one of the top three new universities in the UK and the Faculty of Arts, one of its most successful faculties. The School of Art & Media, situated in the Faculty of Arts, has received significant investment in the last four years enabling it to enhance its reputation for premium, well-resourced, contemporary programmes. Digital Art & Technology programmes are at the forefront of the school’s portfolio of innovative courses, embedding production, design and practice within digital media.

We are seeking a Lecturer to develop and integrate immersive media technologies, in particular data visualisation, CGI, 3D, game engines and motion graphics, within the practical teaching across the undergraduate (BA/BSc) and postgraduate (MRes) programmes in the school. You will contribute to the development and utilisation of digital media resources for PhD and post-doctoral research, and innovation (commercialisation and public engagement). These include a unique 40 seat, 9m full dome digital projection environment. The post will engage proactively and critically with trans-disciplinary activities which operate across cultural and technological aspects of digital practices.

You will be required to have academic leadership qualities combined with practical digital art and technology software, hardware and design skills. You will have significant Higher Education teaching experience, a track record of cross-disciplinary research and enterprise, and preferably experience of doctoral research supervision. You will have the necessary technical skills to teach and research in the field of immersive media technologies and their application to art and design practice and for the benefit of other disciplines.

Recruitment and selection will be based on individual merit; however, we would particularly like to encourage applications from women, and people from black and ethnic minorities who are under-represented in the Faculty.

This is a part-time position working 18.5 hours per week on a permanent basis.
