The opportunity

This is an exciting opportunity to lead the MA Visual Effects course, at London College of Communication (LCC). The successful candidate will design, implement, and deliver a shared vision for the course and support the development of visual effects within the college.

The successful candidate will be responsible to the Programme Director for the academic leadership and management of the course and will shape and lead its future direction.  The role involves the coordination of the academic team, leadership of the development and delivery of the curriculum, management of learning, teaching and assessment, maintenance and enhancement of standards, and resource allocation. 

MA Visual Effects resides within the Moving Image and Digital Arts Programme alongside animation, immersive media, games art and games design courses within the Screen School. The role offers a unique opportunity for a candidate who is committed to developing an innovative creative curriculum in this area of the School’s portfolio, and who is keen to promote inclusion and cultural diversity for graduates looking to develop a deep understanding of the complex specialist skillset of Visual Effects.

About you

You will be an outstanding leader, teacher, practitioner and/or researcher. You will have experience of higher education (or comparable context), an ability to lead on curriculum development and assessment, a sound knowledge of the theories and practices in Visual Effects and be able to contribute to the Programme’s research and/ or knowledge exchange profile.

You should be comfortable working with diverse cohorts of students and committed to a teaching approach that integrates theory and practice and engaging students through a combination of innovative pedagogy, knowledge exchange and/or research.

You should possess a record of professional practice/research, with a proficiency in Visual Effects practice, theory and concepts. Knowledge of relevant software is essential such as Maya, Houdini, Unreal, Nuke, Adobe Creative Suite.

You should be a specialist practitioner and/or researcher who is keen to use your academic and/or industry-based experience to support the development of student work. You’ll be proactive and actively contribute to the programme’s aims and vision. You should have a strong understanding of the contemporary context of Visual Effects in an academic and/or professional setting and be engaged in relevant networks and communities of practice within this and/or related fields.

You’ll have or should be willing to attain, with UAL’s support, a relevant teaching qualification or recognition. An MA in Visual Effects or associated fields is preferred but not essential if comparable experience can be evidenced.

If you have any queries about this role or need any reasonable adjustments for your application, please contact Lesley Wilkins, Resourcing Adviser, lcc.jobs@lcc.arts.ac.uk or telephone: 020 7514 7985
