The University of Northampton is seeking an inspirational Lecturer/Senior Lecturer in Screen Studies with an embedded emphasis on student focused teaching. The successful applicant will teach and lead a range of theoretical screen studies-based modules across three of our undergraduate degree programmes, BA (Hons) Hair, Make-up and Prosthetics for Stage and Screen, BA (Hons) Film and Screen Studies and BA (Hons) Creative Film, Television and Digital Media Production.
You will be able to deploy specialist expertise to develop pedagogy and the curriculum in an innovative way to meet the demands of the range of both academic and practice-based students you will be teaching, as well as providing super-supportive personal tuition.
The successful applicant will be expected to help market the degree programmes they are contributing to which may include occasional weekend and evening cover for recruitment events. You should have experience of teaching both practice-based and theory-based students screen studies, media and cultural theory and research methods and have an enthusiasm to pass on your subject knowledge and expertise onto students.
We want you to be able to carry out your work in a way that best supports UON and our students, but also you as an individual.
You should have a proven background in teaching media and cultural theory, screen studies and research methods to both practice and theory-based students. You will have the ability to produce and deliver a high-quality and innovative teaching and learning experience and be ICT literate. Both a related first and higher degree is essential.
A track record of successfully engaging in the learning and teaching of students on a range of screen, media and performance focused programmes would be strongly advantageous. As an academic, you will also be expected to contribute to the research and scholarly output of the subject area and work collegiately with other researchers within the Faculty and wider University. Research and scholarship are supported through our research centres, mentor scheme, and 25 days of leave for scholarly activity.
