University professor in audiovisual journalism

We are looking to recruit a full-time university teacher to help teach journalism in our programs, bringing recent professional experience in broadcast journalism to enhance our undergraduate and postgraduate offerings.

You will have a minimum of an undergraduate degree or equivalent levels of experience and substantial recent experience in broadcast journalism at a senior and national level, and you will be expected to keep abreast of developments in journalism practice and integrate them directly into your teaching. We are looking to recruit someone who covers all elements of broadcast, camera, digital and television studio skills.

A solid knowledge of Adobe Premiere Pro, television news production and a working knowledge of studio and gallery skills are essential, as well as the structure and creation of journalistic visual narratives. Camera production skills, using both video cameras and smartphones, are also crucial. Those with experience scoring factual shorts are also encouraged to apply and experience with radio, podcasting and other forms of broadcast platforms is desirable.

We are particularly interested in candidates who can bring their knowledge and experience of improving and addressing diversity and equality in newsrooms and media. We are also looking for candidates who can bring innovation to our teaching and translate your experience into effective and innovative teaching through a combination of online and face-to-face courses. You may have or are in the process of obtaining a postgraduate degree in teaching. The experience of accrediting bodies such as NCTJ and BJTC will be helpful.

We believe in the power of diversity to help us meet major global challenges and aim to actively build diverse teams. We especially welcome applications from groups currently underrepresented within the department, including LGBT+, disabled, and applicants from Black, Asian, and minority backgrounds.

Candidates without previous higher education experience will need to undertake training and development of learning and teaching skills.
