Lecturer in Games Technology

Coventry University - School of Computing, Electronics and Mathematics

In the School of Computing, Electronics and Mathematics we recognise the importance of developing a strong practical insight into the subject area of one’s degree, as well as a solid theoretical foundation. This is achieved through an activity led learning approach, where the academic knowledge is cemented by practical real world examples the students can explore on their own and in groups. The school benefits from world class research groups in applied mathematics, wireless sensors, serious games and applied computing, all of which feed into our teaching and provide students with an opportunity to explore cutting edge problems.

The school’s teaching covers traditional courses such as Electrical and Electronic Engineering, Mathematics, Computing and Computer Science, but also more specialised teaching such as Forensic Computing, Games Technology, Ethical Hacking and Network Security

To expand our expertise in both teaching & learning and research we are looking for a lecturer or a senior lecturer with as strong knowledge of graphics programming with practical experience of OpenGL and C++ as well as strong games/software development skills including solid design, programming and debugging skills in a range of languages. It is desirable that the candidate also has experience in one or more of the following: Games Design, Photoshop, 3D Modelling. A practical knowledge of Unity or Unreal engine for 2D and 3D game development would also be advantageous.

You will be responsible for the development, preparation and delivery of learning, teaching and assessment at undergraduate and postgraduate level, ensuring the teaching for which you are responsible is informed by contemporary research in the relevant field and develops the ability of students to engage in debate, critical discourse and rational thinking.

You will actively contribute to research, assisting with bids and tenders for external projects or contracts. You will also be disseminating research outputs using a range of media and develop external networks nationally and/or internationally.

With a PhD and appropriate professional qualification and/or membership, you will need to demonstrate teaching experience at higher education level with evidence of successful student learning outcomes. Experience of working on applied research projects or contracts, supported by evidence of contribution to appropriate output or experience of professional practice/consultancy will be required.

You will need to share our passion for delivering a positive student experience that puts excellence in teaching and learning at the heart of everything you do and will be able to demonstrate significant knowledge of your area of specialisation and of developing a research culture.  

As one of Coventry’s biggest employers we will provide an excellent benefits package and a personal and professional development programme that will help you to achieve your aspirations.
