We are delighted to be seeking to recruit several new colleagues to join the flourishing Department of Cultural, Media and Visual Studies in the School of Cultures, Languages and Area Studies at the University of Nottingham. These new colleagues will join a thoroughly interdisciplinary community of scholars with global perspectives and approaches and contribute to a vibrant and collegial research-led learning environment. Our courses position our world-leading research at the centre of the learning experience and prepare our students to be active and adaptive participants in the increasingly complex and technologized cultural, creative and media environments of the future. 

One of the appointments we are seeking is a Teaching Associate on a fixed-term, full-time basis who will provide teaching at undergraduate level in Media and Screen Studies and provide advice as a member of a teaching team within an established programme of study.

The role holder will have specific responsibility for identifying the learning needs of students and ensure that the content, methods of delivery and learning materials meet the defined learning objectives of the undergraduate courses.

Our School thrives through the different ideas and experiences of colleagues, who come from a mix of cultures and backgrounds. We strive to foster a welcoming, inspiring and supportive workplace. We are seeking applications from candidates whose background, experience and identity broadens and enhances the diversity of our existing team and would especially welcome applications from members of groups who are currently underrepresented in the School, particularly racially minoritised candidates. We understand that having a mix of perspectives, lived experiences and approaches to teaching and research enhances our day-to-day work and enriches our School community. 

Candidates must hold a PhD or equivalent in relevant subject areas (e.g. Film and Television/ Screen Studies, Media and Communications Studies, or a related field) and have previous experience of teaching at Higher Education level. You should have detailed knowledge of teaching methods and techniques and growing practical experience of application of teaching skills and techniques to university courses.

This full-time role (36.25 hours) is available on a fixed term contract until 30th June 2024. Arrangements for job share may be considered.

Candidates should attach a CV, publication list, and a covering letter stating why they are suitable for the role with their application.

Interviews will be held week commencing 18th December.
