Winchester School of Art is proud to be one of the UK's leading art Schools and part of the world-renowned University of Southampton, a founder member of the Russell Group of research-intensive universities. Our research-intensive environment and international student body provide a rich ground for interdisciplinary thinking and making at the nexus of art, science, technology, and culture.

Department of Art & Media Technology

The Department of Art & Media Technology works across Contemporary Art, Curatorial Practices, Games Design, Game Art, Creative Technology & Computing, Global Media, and Arts & Cultural Leadership. The relationships between these areas of practice and research are important. The department supports a politically alert and contextually astute, interdisciplinary research environment, in which practice-based, scholarly, and editorial processes are at play.

About the role

This appointment will enhance research-led education within the Department of Art & Media Technology and extend the international reach of our research and enterprise activities.

You will make a substantial contribution to postgraduate teaching and curriculum development on the new MSc Creative Technologies, whilst also teaching across the Department of Art & Media Technology in accordance with your specialisms.

About You

You will demonstrate a commitment to education and an ability to bring your own research to bear on the enhancement of our undergraduate and postgraduate programmes.

You will have a lead role in the programme delivery of MSc Creative Technologies, with an emphasis on technically-underpinned creative applications and experiences. Your teaching will be both practical studio and lecture-based and will encompass relevant critical theory. This is a new programme, starting in 2024, so you will be integral to its development and future.

You will have a history of practice-led education and direct practical skills related to, for example, the making of prototypes, interactive installations, data-driven art works, games and codable interfaces, experiments and experiences.

We particularly welcome applications from candidates able to teach in some of the following areas:

  • Creative coding (e.g. through javascript, python, processing)
  • Unity or other game platforms
  • Hardware applications and hacking (e.g. Arduino, Raspberry pi, creative robotics)
  • Web development
  • Virtual / augmented reality
  • Theories and histories of technology, science, culture, creativity, art, design and / or media.
  • You will have an established or emerging international reputation in research in the broad field of technology and culture. Your research can be scholarly or practice-based in its application and outputs.

    The school welcomes high levels of collaboration and a keenness for interdisciplinary work is an advantage. There will be opportunities for PhD supervision.
