Faculty / Directorate
This post will be situated in the Leicester Media School, which is part of the Faculty of Computing, Engineering and Media. The Leicester Media School has a strong emphasis on the integration of teaching, research and enterprise. We pride ourselves on creating a space where students have excellent learning opportunities. This is delivered by research active staff and media practitioners. The Media, Film and Journalism subject group prides itself on its engagement with critical context and how social and cultural theory can be applied to practical settings.
In this post we are seeking to develop the practical expertise on offer at DMU, and this is a hands-on role for those with knowledge of filmmaking practice, editing, sound technology and techniques.
Applications are invited from teaching-positive candidates who are focused on student experience. Candidates must be able to teach the practical elements of the Film Studies course, while also demonstrating how those practical skills sit in a broader discipline of film, cultural studies, digital humanities or another cognate field. Evidence of practical outputs and publications is advantageous, as well as experience of public engagement, research-informed teaching and enterprise in the media industries.
It is an exciting time to join the team and actively contribute to the development of the curriculum.
The role is on a full time, permanent basis.
You ideally hold a doctoral degree in Film (or a related discipline) or be near completion and exhibit exceptional practice-based experience, with the potential to become a future academic leader. You will focus on establishing an academic profile through participation in appropriate teaching and learning activities, as well as further developing your research profile or practice.
Please submit a Curriculum Vitae (CV) with your application, which includes your research publications. Please use the Personal Statement section of the application to outline how your area of research and practice aligns with the teaching of moving image production.
