You will also undertake high-level creative or research activities with a minimum of one research / professional practice outcome per year of at least national standard.
Skill and experience required
You will have significant professional experience in animation direction and in teaching and managing delivery at HE level. You must have a strong track record as a practitioner with a deep knowledge of contemporary approaches to animation as well as an understanding of the contexts and technologies underpinning current animation practice. You will have a knowledge of curriculum development and excellent skills in planning and organisation, a track record of developing innovative pedagogy and delivery in HE would be an advantage.
You must have good presentation and interpersonal skills and excellent oral and written communication skills. You will have the ability to work as part of a team and on your own initiative and be proficient in English. Experience of management and project planning would be an advantage.
You must hold a minimum of a postgraduate degree, or equivalent qualification, in a relevant discipline and have a teaching qualification and/or membership of the HEA. Having, or working towards, a research degree in a relevant field would be an advantage.
