i-DAT is a vibrant open research lab and teaching collective for playful experimentation with creative technology in the School of Art, Design and Architecture, situated within the Faculty of Arts, Humanities and Business. It delivers programmes of study at both undergraduate and postgraduate level such as BA/BSc (Hons) Digital Media Design, BA (Hons) Game Arts and Design and BA (Hons) Virtual Reality Design.
These programmes embed the production of digital media and design within a framework of creative and experimental artistic practice. They have a rich interaction with MRes Digital Art and Technology and MA Game Design, and a substantial and established PhD community.
They also have strong international connections with the Game Arts Design programme being delivered as a 3+1 at Nanjing University of the Arts and CODEX, an international PGR network. You will be based at the Plymouth campus and would be expected to contribute to this TNE activity.
Three positions are available:
We are seeking a Programme Leader for the BA (Hons) Game Arts and Design, and MA Game Design courses. You will manage a staff team, and contribute to practical and theoretical teaching and research in germane areas such as: environment, character and technical art; asset production pipelines; game studies; design theory; animation, modelling and texturing for 3D environments; storytelling / narrative development and speculative use of contemporary game engines.
We are seeking a Lecturer in 3D Visualisation, Immersion and Simulation to deliver teaching and research at undergraduate and postgraduate levels, as well as contribute to the ongoing development of the subject group. You will contribute to practical and theoretical teaching and research in Unreal and Unity Development, 3D pipeline skills, CGI, modelling and 3D / volumetric scanning.
We are seeking a Lecturer in Interaction Design to contribute to these activities. You will deliver practical and theoretical teaching and research in interaction design, and will have extensive skills and experience within the fields of creative physical computing (such as Arduino and Raspberry Pi), visual programming environments (such as Touch Designer and MaxMSP), the Internet of Things and product fabrication.
The University is committed to promoting a diverse and inclusive community – a place where we can all be ourselves and succeed on merit. We offer a range of family friendly, inclusive employment policies, flexible working arrangements, staff engagement forums, campus facilities and services to support staff from different backgrounds.
We particularly encourage applications from women, black and minority ethnic people who are under-represented in this area within University of Plymouth.
