We are seeking applications for the post of Senior Lecturer in Film and Video Production Technology. This is a new programme in its second year.

You will have the capability and vision to contribute to this new degree course, to develop it and help the University to become a leading centre of excellence within the Film and TV industry.  You will teach video engineering associated with professional film and video practice to the highest professional level. A successful research portfolio in the area of video or imaging would be required for this role.

You will teach on the Film and Video Production Technology undergraduate programme, covering two or more of the following areas: analogue and digital video fundamentals, computer imaging and systems, broadcast engineering systems, digital signal processing, research methods, post production workflow. The programme has a small cohort of high quality students, enabling a highly collegiate environment between staff and students.

The Department of Music and Media has programmes in music, creative music technology, digital media arts and the Tonmeister course in music and sound recording. The Faculty includes a leading conservatoire, the Guildford School of Acting (GSA), which merged formally with the University in 2012. Research Centres include the International Guitar Research Centre and the Institute of Sound Recording (IoSR). The IoSR is closely allied with the Centre for Vision and Speech Signal Processing (CVSSP) in the faculty of Engineering and Physical Sciences.

The Film and Video Production Engineering programme is the sister course to the world-famous Tonmeister degree in music and sound recording. The Tonmeister course has been running since 1970 and has an international reputation as one of the world’s leading courses in sound recording. Graduates have won many awards in the industry including Oscars (creative and technical), BAFTAs and Emmys. The Film and Video Production Engineering programme is closely based on the structure of the Tonmeister degree to combine engineering principles, professional practical skills and artistic study.
