About York St John 

As one of the fastest growing universities in the UK over recent years, we have a new strategy for the next decade, emphasising our commitment to widening opportunity through the power of education and contributing our talents to creating a fairer world, and a more prosperous region. We are putting inspirational learning and impactful research at the heart of this strategy, recognising our academic expertise as our greatest asset.

The School 

Design, clustered within the School of the Arts, is an ambitious and growing academic and creative department, which is home to the AR-VR Research Group and cognate suite of growing undergraduate and taught postgraduate degrees. Our burgeoning national and international research profile, excellent teaching and learning (TEF Silver Overall, and Gold for Student Experience), and welcoming and inclusive ethos supports an exceptional student experience (achieving 95% for overall academic support in the NSS in Design, and achieving excellent graduate outcomes, including 90% in Product Design). Our School offers a number of undergraduate degrees, and with £5.2 million Office for Students supported investment in the Design Building and high powered computing, we are about to launch new BSc/BA and MSc programmes at undergraduate and postgraduate level in Creative Technologies focussing on virtual reality, augmented reality, and AI, alongside BAs in Games Design, Product Design, Graphic Design, Animation and Interior Design, and MAs in Graphic Design, Interior Design and VR-AR, and MSc Product Design. 

The Role 

We are seeking an enthusiastic and engaged Professor to contribute to our vibrant undergraduate and postgraduate offers in Design, with a focus on creative technologies, virtual and augmented realities, AI and VFX. The majority of your work will involve leading PGR development in Design, leading and mentoring the team in research development, capacity building toward REF and growing funding capture, and in growing industry connections for research/practice informed teaching which reflects authentic creative careers, embedded in teaching in a variety of settings, including small groups and tutorials/seminars; assessment across the programmes; and the provision of pastoral and academic support to students. The successful candidate will be a collaborative colleague, who is engaged with students, utilising their research/practice across all we do.
