The Post

The post is a full-time, open ended position which should commence on 1 September 2017, or by mutual agreement. The appointment, intended chiefly to build on the established strength of production teaching in the Division of Communications, Media and Culture (CMC), will be made on the basis of the successful candidate’s ability to contribute to the development and delivery of a new and innovative Masters programme in Factual Television Development and Production, as well as helping to maintain CMC’s record of creating high quality and award winning factual production work. This will involve assisting in the delivery of production-related components of our successful undergraduate programmes in Film and Media, Digital Media and Journalism Studies.

CMC wishes to appoint a suitably qualified and experienced candidate at Lecturership (Grade 8) level to develop postgraduate production provision, to deliver practice based teaching to undergraduates, and to undertake administrative duties as appropriate. This will be a key appointment in expanding provision within the key strategic areas of audio and video production, digital media and journalism, through an emphasis on creating high quality factual content.

The appointee will contribute to future curriculum planning in partnership with the Head of Production, and will take a leading role in the development and delivery of the exciting new postgraduate production programme, which will have industry involvement at its heart.

Applicants for this post should have recent and relevant professional involvement in development and production, as well as experience of teaching television research and production skills in the Higher Education sector. This should include overseeing development of ideas, and supervising high quality factual video production work from concept through to final delivery.

Applicants must have demonstrable production and/or post production expertise in video, have experience in producing material for different media platforms, and be able to contribute to enhancing student employability as part of a curriculum which mixes theory and practice.

Proven and current links with the media industry are important for this role.
