About The Role
Falmouth University's ambitious 2030 Strategy, ‘Doing it for Real’, is designed to deliver yet further growth in our student numbers and income through portfolio diversification, innovation, research and commercial ventures. It will establish Falmouth as the market leader for creative industries and entrepreneurship education over the next decade, capitalising on our considerable assets in innovation-led research and business incubation.
We are seeking to recruit a Lecturer/Senior Lecturer in Film and Television to join our team within the School of Film & Television in our purpose-built facility at the Penryn campus, Cornwall.
This is a CILECT accredited facility, working within the ScreenSkills accredited BA Film, BA Television and MA Film & Television courses, in addition to online postgraduate provision and PhD students. Our community of committed scholars and professionals ensure that our constantly evolving courses are informed by the latest academic scholarship and the demands of a vibrant industry environment. Our research and professional practice is framed by the Sound/Image Cinema Lab, a multifaceted partner, funder, resource and research centre dedicated to the production and education of independent cinema.
You will primarily be working with large and diverse cohorts as Module Leader for first year (core) modules, one broadly film studies/film history/cultural studies-orientated and the other broadly film history/industrial history/production studies/contemporary industrial context-orientated, in addition to third year final project and dissertation supervision. You may also be contributing to second year context modules centred around representation (particularly race/class/gender), and to second year practice modules through the provision of contextual seminar teaching potentially focusing on documentary. You will be engaged in departmental research and administration activities as well as the pastoral care of undergraduates, and may be eligible for the role of Year Leader, managing issues of student well-being and academic welfare, and working closely with Course Leader and student representatives to ensure quality of experience across the cohort.
Teaching primarily on context modules on our undergraduate course in BA Film, and with the potential opportunity to contribute to our BA Television and taught MA Film & Television, you will possess a Masters degree in a relevant subject area and will have completed (or be near completion of) a PhD. Research and teaching interests in the production cultures and industrial contexts of cinema and aspects of film history/culture/philosophy are essential. Interests in developing the curriculum of the BA Film, and in developing the School’s links with industry, are desirable, as is experience of teaching the historical/theoretical framework behind specific modes of practice (e.g. Documentary, Experimental film). You will have experience of large-cohort module leadership as well as small group teaching, and the supervision of dissertation projects at undergraduate and/or postgraduate level.
Alongside these key skills, you will be an enthusiastic educator and an organised, capable administrator with a record of assisting undergraduate and postgraduate students in finding their voice and realising their ambitions.
This is a permanent, full-time, 35 hours per week position working across Monday to Friday. There may be an opportunity for candidates to be considered as a Year Leader as part of this role.
The closing date for this position is Sunday 12 February 2023.
