Lecturer in Film (Ref: 083)

Salary range: 
£35,845 to £41,526 per annum, pro rata

Permanent, part time (0.8 FTE)

The Film Team within the School of Engineering, Arts, Science and Technology (EAST) seeks to appoint a part-time Lecturer in Film, whose background should be primarily in fiction filmmaking, cinematography and/or screenwriting. Given the nature and breadth of this 0.8fte post, we will happily consider dividing the role into two separate part-time posts (if there is not a successful candidate with all the necessary experience required). The division of the post will be based on the experience of the successful applicants and will be discussed post-interview.

As a Top 30 Employer for Working Families 2016 and 2017, we consider flexible working requests for all our vacancies. Applicants wishing to apply for a flexible working arrangement should state clearly that they are applying on a flexible working basis, providing details of their request including their availability for work.

The role will entail the delivery of learning, teaching and assessment across the BA (Hons) Digital Film Production and BA (Hons) Screenwriting degrees, as well as engagement in scholarly activity and research/professional practice. In addition, the post holder will take an active role in the wider work and administration of the School.

The School of EAST prides itself on offering excellent learning and teaching in an environment which supports world-class, application-focused research in the subject areas relevant to our curricula.

In terms of our film facilities, we have a large film studio, dedicated edit suite, colour grading suite and audio studio. We only use industry standard software, and students are taught primarily in AVID Media Composer, Pro Tools and Da Vinci Resolve.

The BA (Hons) Digital Film Production is a very practical degree, with production modules comprising approximately two-thirds of the course. Students make at least six films by the end of their first year and ten by the end of their second year.

We offer students a wide variety of professional practice opportunities, including the making of short promotional or training films for local and national organisations, and we actively encourage participation in these types of project so that students may graduate with a strong, industry-ready CV and showreel.

Throughout the degree, we provide regular workshops in a wide-range of equipment including: Canon, Sony and Black Magic cameras, a wide variety of prime and zoom lenses, tungsten and LED lighting, Sound Devices mixers and different types of grip such as track and dolly, jib arms and gimbals. Students also learn to use the ARRI ALEXA Mini LF in the third year.
