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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.
