Working with the Department of Computing, you will become part of our strategy of continuous growth of interdisciplinary computer science research and teaching. You will lead the creative practice components of this programme, which aims to develop both the creative as well as the technical potential of undergraduates. You will have a background in ivisual art or design with an emphasis on the use of computing and other digital processes and technologies. We will not rule out candidates who have their main creative practice in non-visual areas such as music, but we will expect evidence of expertise in visual-based practices also.

You should have first degree and PhD and/or relevant work experience in the creative industries or in your own creative practice and teaching and workshop experience at undergraduate level. You will be able to demonstrate evidence of a strong background in computing coupled with experience of interdisciplinary research. You will have strong ideas about how to develop the creative practice elements of our undergraduate degrees and clear ideas about how to meet the needs of our student body. The courses you will teach will be developed around the Creative Suite software package so some experience of using this in your own creative practice or in teaching or workshop scenarios would be very welcome.
