About the role
Journalism and Humanities are two interlinked disciplines at University of Derby. We have a successful portfolio of Post Graduate Taught programmes which share modules. We encourage and support interdisciplinary teaching and research. MA Global Affairs and Politics is a new programme running for the first time in 2022 and MA Journalism ran for the first time in September 2021.
Both programmes emphasise a critical understanding of the society we live in and both programmes facilitate students to undertake practical assessments. Journalism undergraduate programmes are popular and established at University of Derby. There are potential opportunities for the right person to contribute to BA Journalism, BA Football Journalism and BA Specialist Sports.
Applications are invited for an Associate Lecturer in Data Journalism and Data Science due to our growing provision we require additional expertise in within Data Journalism. As a member of Journalism team you will be responsible for planning, delivering and marking work with some potential for research supervision.
You should have direct experience of data journalism and have the ability to translate complex concepts and practices in accessible ways, either via interactive web design design or other methods of data visualisation. You will be required to develop students practical skills and enable students to understand and apply approaches to source and interpret data for journalistic and investigative purposes.
Data is increasingly used in innovative ways to elaborate, corroborate or contextualise content in infographics or visual means to convey complex information in accessible means. Some practical awareness of this would be preferred.
