Bournemouth University's vision is worldwide recognition as a leading university for inspiring learning, advancing knowledge and enriching society through the fusion of education, research and practice. Our highly skilled and creative workforce is comprised of individuals drawn from a broad cross section of the globe, who reflect a variety of backgrounds, talents, perspectives and experiences that help to build our global learning community.

The Faculty of Media and Communication at Bournemouth University is one of the largest of its kind in the world and has a global reputation for combining research and teaching practice. The National Centre for Computer Animation (NCCA) is the leading centre for teaching production and research in computer animation and digital effects. In 2011 BU was awarded a Queen's Anniversary Prize for the NCCA's 'World Class' teaching.

Post-production in Visual Effects and Computer Animation involves the manipulation and seamless integration of acquired and virtual 2D assets. In this role you will be teaching and supervising students in the practical disciplines of production and post-production, with particular emphasis on 2D workflows and compositing. Expertise in VFX photography and acquisition is both desirable and complimentary, but not essential. Demonstrable experience with Foundry Nuke is highly desirable, but comparable experience in alternative node-based compositing software (Blender, Unreal Engine, After Effects) will be considered.

We welcome applicants with industry expertise in this specialist discipline from any area of computer graphics production, including (but not limited to) VFX, computer animation, architectural visualisation and/or computer games. Please include a link to a showreel or online portfolio of your best work with your application.

Enthusiastic about active student-centred pedagogy, you will contribute to education delivery, including programme management as required, across the range of undergraduate and postgraduate programmes. You will also make a significant contribution to employability and help to further enhance the department's professional networks.

You will be qualified to Doctorate level or be able to demonstrate the ability to create and disseminate knowledge at an equivalent level and the capability to convert this knowledge into a doctorate in a maximum of 3-5 years from the date of appointment. You will be research active and committed to a culture of academic excellence and continuous improvement.

The University is currently trialling hybrid working until December 2022 which is a blend of on campus and remote working. Further details will be provided during the recruitment process.

For further information and discussion or the opportunity for an informal visit, please contact Dr Richard Southern, Head of Department – Computer Animation by email atrsouthern@bournemouth.ac.uk.

BU values and is committed to an inclusive working environment. We seek a diverse community through attracting, developing and retaining staff from different backgrounds to contribute to inspirational learning, advancing knowledge and enriching society. To support and enable our staff to achieve a balance between work and their personal lives, we will also consider proposals for flexible working or job share arrangements.
