About the role
We are seeking to appoint a Lecturer in Digital Media to join our well-established Media and Communication unit. You will play a leading role in the campus based and distance learning MA programmes and make a contribution to the BA Media and Communication degree programme as well as contributing to research and administration in the division.
The University of Leicester has the longest established Communication and Media unit in the UK founded 55 years ago as the Centre for Mass Communication and Research in 1966. Celebrating over half a century of cutting-edge research we are committed to academic excellence, intellectual diversity, good teaching and ensuring that the student experience is not only interesting and challenging in its own right but also provides a vital foundation for future employment. Media and Communication at Leicester derives its intellectual identity from a commitment to tackling ‘real world’ problems in the pursuit of equality, diversity and social justice.
You will be expected to contribute world-leading research in an established and successful part of the University. Media and Communication was ranked 7th in the UK’s 2021 Research Excellence Framework evaluation. We are also an important hub for delivering Media and Communication undergraduate degree programmes and a wide range of Masters programmes to a large cohort of international students.
With experience of teaching Digital Media at university level, you will have a completed PhD in Media and Communication, or a closely related field. You will be a recognised expert for the subject matter with a clear potential or evidence of an emerging record of research income, commensurate with career experience.
Motivated by providing the very best experience to our students, you will have skills in advising and motivating students to achieve their potential.
For informal enquiries, please contact Catherine Morley at [email protected].
We anticipate that interviews will take place in late October 2023.
