Committed to excellence in all we do, we are growing and investing in our research and people to accelerate our remarkable achievements. With particular focus on four key impact themes chosen to build on the university's existing strengths and to address the most complex societal and environmental challenges: Artificial Intelligence, sustainability and resilience, decarbonisation and engineering better health, this role is integral to our aim of making a lasting difference.

The Film Department at Southampton has an excellent reputation for teaching and research. For REF 2021, 95% of our research was judged ‘world-leading' or ‘internationally excellent', and we achieved the highest scores for impact beyond the academy.

About you
