Manchester Metropolitan University is a pioneer of modern education since its origins in 1824 and sits in the top 200 young universities in the world. 30% of our research is considered world leading (4) and 90% of our research impact is rated ‘world leading' (4) or ‘internationally excellent' (3*). Located in the heart of Manchester, a globally recognised centre for digital media with a vibrant and rapidly expanding technology sector, the university offers an enviable opportunity to work with industry and develop real impact in research and knowledge exchange.
The Department of Computing and Mathematics is a large and successful academic community of students and staff in the Faculty of Science and Engineering that is committed to achieving high-quality teaching, research and enterprise. The Department delivers courses to over 1500 students across Undergraduate, and Postgraduate programmes and has over 70 members of academic staff with ambitious plans for growth.
The Department has a long and successful track record of securing research funding and has a substantive, growing portfolio of funded projects from research councils, charities, the EU, and Innovate UK. Much of this is grounded in our extensive work with local employers and organisations comprising the region's vibrant digital sector with a significant portfolio of funded knowledge exchange projects.
Research in the department is closely aligned with the Centre for Advanced Computational Science (CfACS) which conducts world‐leading research in computer science, distributed across five main themes:
In 2023, the department will move into a new purpose-built Science and Engineering Building. The new building will substantially increase the research space available to the department opening up exciting new research opportunities such as robotics. The new building will also increase the informal social and study space for students creating an outstanding learning environment that will facilitate innovative collaborations amongst a diverse community of students and academics.
We offer flexible working arrangements, such as flexible hours and compressed hours.
You will be a passionate educator who fully understands the pedagogic approaches needed to deliver excellent student experience and learning opportunities for the undergraduate and postgraduate courses you will teach. As an academic, you will have the ability to flexibly balance teaching with the development of an excellent and accelerating profile in research and knowledge exchange within the Centre of Advanced Computational Science.
We are seeking applications from individuals who have expertise in the field of Games Design either through academic research or professional practice. You will have in-depth knowledge of current tools and techniques.
You will be expected to have higher education level teaching or mentoring experience in Games Design, and have a PhD in relevant discipline or have the equivalent industrial experience in AIData Science. You will be a strong collegiate team player with the ability to impassion and motivate student staff communities through your contributions, collaboration and co-creation.
