Senior Lecturer (Virtual & Augmented Reality)

Southampton Solent University - School of Media Arts and Technology

37 hours per week
35 days holiday per annum plus bank holidays

The Computer Games & Digital Arts Group are committed to the delivery of high quality teaching, applied research and a ‘real-world’ learning experience focussed on graduate employability and enterprise.

Virtual & Augmented Reality (VR & AR) is a new area within the Group. This is an opportunity to shape the future of AR & VR education. Applications are invited for the position of Senior Lecturer specialising in VR & AR to contribute to curriculum development and extend links with the VR/AR industry. Applicants for this post should have a knowledge of the breadth of the VR & AR discipline in a professional environment. An in-depth knowledge of VR & AR development and good problem solving skills are required. Experience of VR & AR development in the mainstream or independent sectors is preferable.

Experience of teaching or training would be an advantage, as would postgraduate academic or educational qualifications. However, the confidence to communicate complex technical knowledge and ideas to students, together with the desire to inspire and motivate, is essential.

Applicants should have a willingness to be involved in research and/or enterprise within the group.

Some unsocial hours and UK/international travel may be required.

With a strong track record of innovation and creativity, Southampton Solent University has grown to become one of the country’s leading new universities with strong local roots as well as a renowned international reputation.

Now, with a bold and ambitious five-year strategy in place, we aim to build on these achievements as we meet the needs of students and employers within a rapidly changing higher education arena.
