The University of Southampton seeks to appoint a Digital Media Technician on a full-time permanent basis to be based in the Film Department.
Film Studies at Southampton has an excellent reputation for teaching and research. We are based within the School of Humanities in the Faculty of Arts and Humanities and have close interdisciplinary links with other members of the School and the wider University. Humanities at Southampton encompasses a diverse range of subjects, providing high-quality teaching within a vibrant research culture. The Film Department contributes to that environment, enabling staff and students across the School to study film, television, and digital media by engaging in humanities teaching, research, and enterprise.
You will join a team of dedicated educators and researchers supported by recent investments in both Film and Digital Humanities. Notable among these is our new Video Editing Suite, which provides staff and students with the infrastructure to support their education and research by offering access to AV and IT equipment and specialised software that are centred on digital humanities tools for learning and assessment in Film Studies, such as video essays, data visualisations, and virtual exhibitions.
As the Digital Media Technician for Film, you will play a central role in providing outstanding service to staff and students, using the Video Editing Suite facilities and IT and AV equipment and software to complete a range of tasks, including managing the use and maintenance of equipment, delivering inductions and demonstrations, and providing specialist advice. In addition, you will also supervise the workflow in the Video Editing Suite, and act as a liaison with the Digital Humanities Hub, iSolutions, and Estates to install, monitor, maintain, and repair Film equipment, systems, software, and facilities across the Avenue Campus.
We welcome applications from those with experience as a technician in a research and education context, while we are also interested in candidates with a broad range of technical backgrounds and interests who are looking to develop their skills as a technician in a humanities context. As you will instruct both staff and students on a range of digital humanities tools in support of research, learning, and assessment, we are also looking for a candidate with good pedagogical and communication skills.
