THe post

Arts University Bournemouth is the leading professional arts university dedicated to turning creativity into careers. Offering courses in art, design, media and performance, we are passionate about our specialist subjects and dedicated both to education and the creative industries which we serve.

We are looking for a highly motivated and inspirational Senior Lecturer who has an understanding of and professional experience with current graphic design practice. You should be experienced in supporting students in the development of their ideas and have a passion for critical and collaborative creative approaches to graphic design. You will need to have the ability to devise briefs, facilitate workshops and feedback critique to engage and motivate student learning.

You will be working as part of a dedicated course team who believe in a student-centred approach and an open-minded interpretation with regard to communication design and how it might continue to evolve and initiate change in the future. The post would offer you the opportunity to develop your teaching practice by being responsible for the delivery of graphic design studies at Level 4 and supporting delivery at Levels 5 and 6.

You will need to continually update your professional and subject knowledge/skills and will be able to effectively work in a team whilst being able to work independently. Excellent organisation and administration skills are also essential.

The successful candidate for the post will hold BA (Hons) and Master’s Degree qualifications in a relevant subject and will have a Teaching qualification as well as Higher Education Academy (HEA) Fellow membership. PhD or equivalent industry experience is desirable, evidenced through being a recognised authority in the subject with internal and external peers as well as having a detailed knowledge and deep understanding of the subject’s processes and practices.

Candidates from outside of academia must be able to demonstrate the ability to make the transition to becoming a leading academic.
