You will be responsible for delivering a high-quality learning experience to students and contributing to the development of new and exciting courses at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels. You will be expected to be involved in module leadership and delivery, to contribute specialist topics, to supervise dissertations, liaise with industrial partners and to engage in academic and applied research.

As well as the ability to design and deliver transformative and innovative learning experiences, you'll need well developed and current knowledge of practical and theoretical issues in computer games development and a good honours degree in either computer science, software engineering or games development. A postgraduate degree or PhD in a relevant discipline or close to completion is desirable.

  • Unreal Engine and Unity development, including C++ and C#, as well as experience with their environments and supporting tools.
  • Sony PlayStation 4 development, including C++, as well as experience with the PlayStation 4 development tools and libraries.
  • Network programming in computer games, including experience of implementing massive-multiplayer games, addressing latency issues, using industry standard libraries in this area.
  • We are not looking for applicants in artificial intelligence in games at this time.

    We offer a diverse range of benefits and opportunities to pursue a rewarding and fulfilling career in a supportive environment. As well as 35 days annual leave and the eight standard UK bank holidays, you also get up to six extra days each year for extended University closure around some UK public/holidays.
