The School of Creative Arts, Performance and Visual Cultures (SCAPVC) was established in August 2019 within the Faculty of Arts. As of August 2021, SCAPVC comprises the Warwick Writing Programme, Theatre and Performance Studies, Cultural and Media Policy Studies (CMPS), History of Art, and Film and Television Studies.
The School wishes to appoint a Senior Teaching Fellow in Media and Creative Industries to work within Cultural and Media Policy Studies. This is an exciting opportunity to develop innovative approaches to teaching, industry engagement and the delivery of an undergraduate programme at a leading international centre.
You will be working with a committed team of colleagues to build on and complement CMPS’s diverse teaching, research and industry-facing strengths. CMPS at Warwick has an excellent track record in the creative industries and cultural enterprise; media and cultural policy; media, communication and culture; cultural entrepreneurship and cultural management. Our new BA (Hons) Media and Creative Industries (launched in 2020) is fast becoming central to our international reputation and to a generation of new digitally-oriented students; it expands our footprint in national and overseas markets.
You will be playing a key role in our undergraduate course BA (Hons) Media and Creative Industries, being responsible for brokering relationships with industry through your network and new collaborations, securing placements and residencies, and developing in students a passion for media and creative industries. You will be expected to demonstrate knowledge, and experience, of engagement with the media and cultural sectors. You will be expected to assess student projects, case studies, proposals and reports as well as deliver training, tutorials and provide mentoring to students wishing to enter these industries.
To be appointed, you will hold an honours degree or equivalent in a relevant discipline and possess a postgraduate qualification. You will have clear potential for, or demonstrated excellence in, teaching, pedagogy, student experience and welfare-based activities (both pastoral and administrative). You will demonstrate an awareness of the current requirements of the sector — new innovations in digital and AI, equity and fairness, wellbeing and the environmental impact of the media industries. You will have some experience of leadership or initiative-taking in mentoring, training or teaching, and demonstrate some potential in undertaking appropriate leading roles in administration.
We particularly welcome applicants from those who are significantly underrepresented in our sector, including those identifying as Black, Asian or another minority ethnic group.
The University of Warwick provides an inclusive working and learning environment, recognising and respecting every individual’s differences. We welcome applications from individuals who identify with any of the protected characteristics defined by the Equality Act 2010.
