Job: Lecturer in Digital Culture and Media Education

The Department of Digital Humanities is seeking to appoint a permanent Lecturer (Academic Education Pathway) to contribute to our teaching in the area of digital culture and society. The post-holder will have a sound knowledge of the theories, key concepts, and methods providing expertise in areas within this domain, and will be expected to develop it. As a non-exhaustive list of examples, we are interested in all aspects of digital culture and media, and especially in expertise regarding platform and app studies, algorithm studies, smart cities, digital health, ethnography, anthropology, and digital methods, data analysis, dataveillance, digital inclusion and exclusion, as well as in online teaching.

We are looking for a range of expertise to support our fast expanding five postgraduate programmes – in particular on the MA Digital Culture and Society – and on the BA Digital Culture. Candidates will be expected to provide high quality teaching across all levels, including undergraduate, Masters, and PhD, to supervise undergraduate and graduate student dissertations, and to keep abreast of the latest scholarship in their field. Candidates will be striving to become scholars of national and international standing.

The post holder will complement existing teaching in the Department and offer students new opportunities in their studies of digital society and culture. She/he will support student specialisation in their own area. The successful applicant will also be expected, within reason, to teach outside their own immediate area of expertise.

The successful candidate will also undertake pastoral duties including personal tutoring and administrative duties linked to Departmental, Faculty and University administration.

Candidates will contribute to the life and reputation of the Department, the Faculty, and the College through taking on an appropriate administrative role, contributing to internal networks and collaborations, taking part in external national and international activities, and undertaking industry and public engagement where appropriate.

This role is based at King’s Strand Campus in London, and the post holder will be expected to offer a blended package of learning, both online and face to face.

Interviews are expected to be held in the week commencing 2 November 2020.
