Abertay University - School of Design and Informatics

Abertay University, in Dundee, Scotland, is a modern university with a global outlook, rooted in its local and national communities. In 2013 we marked the 125th anniversary of our foundation as an institution dedicated to supporting science, industry and the professions with a distinctive interdisciplinary and multi-disciplinary approach to teaching, research and knowledge exchange.

The University now seeks to appoint a Lecturer in Game Design within the Division of Games and Arts, part of the School of Design and Informatics.

The School of Design and Informatics is the home of Abertay’s undergraduate and postgraduate degree programmes in games, digital arts, cyber security and applied computer science. Abertay was the first university to offer degrees in Computer Games Technology and Ethical Hacking, and the School continues to be recognised as an international leader in its fields. The School has long-established professional links with Dundee’s thriving computer games community and the UK's cybersecurity community.

The Division of Games and Arts is home to Abertay’s research and teaching in game design, computer arts, and sound and music for games. Academic staff in the division have pursued research on a diverse range of themes, including games with purpose, interactive design in the performing arts, experimental game jams, and game aesthetics.

Reporting to the Head of Division, you will provide high-quality, research-informed teaching across all of our degree programmes, with a particular focus on specialist content within our Game Design and Production and Computer Arts degrees, and conduct internationally-recognised research that contributes to Abertay's strategic interests within the creative industries and digital arts.

We are particularly keen to attract applicants with a strong track record of research and teaching and/or significant professional experience in one or more of the following areas: level design and scripting, gameplay and systems design, professional workflow and game production pipelines.
