SENIOR LECTURER IN GAME ART
UNIVERSITY OF HUDDERSFIELD, SCHOOL OF ART & DESIGN
BASED AT UNIVERSITY CENTRE OLDHAM AND UNIVERSITY OF HUDDERSFIELD
£32,137 - £40,711
The School of Art & Design has developed its suite of courses in the multimedia and media arts subject area at its locations on Huddersfield Campus and at University Centre Oldham. This includes the recently introduced Game Art course at UCO and planned developments at Honours level in this area at Huddersfield, and the School now requires a new full-time Senior lecturer to work with existing staff and researchers of the Digital Research Unit in developing this area. Game Art at
Huddersfield includes a broad spectrum of creative and cultural practices including game interfaces, narrative for games, graphics for games, character design, game worlds, the creative appropriation of games including game modification, machinima, sonichima, games as art and serious games, as well as the design of computer games for entertainment. You will be expected to deliver and support existing staff at UCO and at Huddersfield as well as contributing to the development of the subject area as a whole.
You will have a broad understanding of the cultures of games design in both commercial design as well as contemporary art practice and cultural contexts. You will contribute to design studio based teaching and lectures in games culture. A degree or recognised experience of equivalent standing in an art and design discipline is essential and you will ideally have an art school education, with substantial experience of working in a games related field in the creative or cultural industries sectors.
