Are you creative?  Do you have the teaching and research ability to become the Course Leader on our new MA Illustration for Communication course within the GradSchool launching in January 2021 at Ravensbourne University London?  

Do you have the relationships in the communication and visualisation industries that can inspire and connect our students? Do you have a commitment to developing your own teaching ability through practice, reflection and interacting with students? Can you bring, through your own background and life experience, the ability to understand our students and how the diversity of their lives, approaches to their work, personal histories and interests can drive the development of the course?

You will be part of a team led by the Associate Programme Director, and will work alongside two other course leaders in GradSchool, and a wider team of leaders in The Institute for Creativity and Technology; CreativeLab, MakerSpace, Incubation+ team and ResearchRave

We are looking to strengthen our team with the following:

The structure of this MA has been designed to a common academic framework shared with our other postgraduate courses. The Course Leader will design and deliver content for this MA course in such a way that students develop the creative and critical faculties and practical skills to meet the challenges faced by today’s communication and visualisation industries  and into innovation in narration, storytelling and image making. We would like to hear from someone whose own research and practice can inform and enrich this MA. You should be able to collaborate within the university and with industry.

We believe that the diversity of the interests, practice and personal backgrounds of the students must be matched by our staff. So, your points of reference, your life experience whether at home or at work are as important to us as your academic ability in guiding and supporting students and understanding their potential for the future. We want you to celebrate yours and their difference.

To enable us to have the benefit of the most diverse range of these experiences and approaches in our staff, we are keen to encourage applications from the widest variety of people. We are under-represented in some areas and passionately welcome suitable applicants from any diaspora, background and identity to apply. We would also very much like to hear how; you are open to change, can help us to clarify our goals, are a good listener taking into account the perspectives of other members of the team and students, can turn ideas into action and have an eye for detail and practicality.

Closing date: Monday 10th August 2020, 11PM

Interviews: W/C 17th August 2020
