Lecturer/Senior Lecturer, Animation (RO4243)

University of the West of England Full-Time  Bristol, England, United Kingdom 20 May 2022

Job Description

About us: The School of Creative and Cultural Industries is a vibrant community, grounded in creative practice and the humanities.  We offer sector-leading creative courses in Animation, Drama, Filmmaking, Media Production and Photography delivered in outstanding facilities at our City Campus in Bristol, one of the UK’s most dynamic cities.

This post offers the opportunity to be part of an exceptional team delivering our thriving Animation programmes. We are looking for a strong, creative practitioner with a substantial, and preferably recent, industry background plus proven teaching experience in higher education.

Our highly successful UG, PG and Apprenticeship Animation programmes enable students to work across 2D, 3D, stop-motion and interactive softwares and processes as well as acquire key skills in pre-production, idea development, design, and filmmaking.  Curriculum delivery is underpinned by strong industry relationships with companies, such as Aardman Animations, Wildseed Studios, Sun and Moon, Rumpus and Hello Charlie.  We put real-world experience and applied research at the heart of our programmes, so our students develop employability and enterprising career skills along the way.

About you: You will have a broad range of professional animation production experience, as well as a specific specialism, to make a strong contribution to our curricula.  You will have excellent networks to help our students explore a range of professional environments and develop successful careers. You will have sufficient knowledge of the academic debates relevant to the discipline of animation production to meaningfully contribute to the delivery of our animation studies modules. With high levels of management, administration, and organisation skills, you will have the capability to take on Module Leadership.

You will have teaching responsibilities mainly across our BA Hons Animation, a well-established programme with an excellent record of student and graduate achievement.   However, there will also be opportunities to contribute to our highly respected ScreenSkills accredited MA Animation and innovative Junior Animator Apprenticeship programmes.  An inspiring teacher, you will have the ability to enable our students to develop their creative voice, hone their production and craft skills and develop their future potential.

You will be a committed team player, able to thrive in a demanding yet rewarding environment.  You will make a whole-hearted contribution to the collegiate life of the subject group, department, faculty, and university.  You will be able to demonstrate research potential and ambition, enthusiastically contributing to the development of practice-based research.  You will either hold, or be willing to undertake within 2 years, a teaching qualification, or Higher Education Academy (HEA) Membership.
