This post will contribute to the transdisciplinary research of the Institute of the Creative Technologies (IOCT) and across the Leicester Media School (LMS). IOCT conducts research at the intersection of science, technologies and creative practices which challenges boundaries. We are seeking an individual with the ability to subvert and transgress boundaries and conventions, in keeping with the Leicester Media School ethos, and De Montfort University’s strategic framework. We are a global dynamic university, and this post will enhance our visibility. De Montfort University has a history of pioneering work in computing and the arts, stretching back to the 1960s, is highly active in the area today, and has a mission to expand such practice and research. The creation of this new post is part of this mission, especially concerning the digital arts and technology.
The successful applicant will work with the IOCT and LMS, and should either practice in the digital arts, taken broadly, and/or have a research record of studying or supporting some aspect of such practice. Practice based expertise in creative media technologies will be an advantage, as will an ability to enhance the Media Design Production (MDP) Subject Group area in LMS, which includes Graphic Design (interactive), Game Art Design, Animation and Media Production. S/he will be able to contribute to the Creative Technologies Masters and the Digital Arts Masters programmes, by teaching areas such as interaction design, virtual reality, or wearable technologies. Ideally, s/he will hold a PhD, or be close to completion, and be able to supervise a range of relevant PhDs. The role holder will make a contribution to our international agenda, and boost our existing industry links and graduate employability, and income generation.
