Lecturer in New Media and Digital Culture
The Faculty of Humanities has a vacancy for a Lecturer in New Media and Digital Culture.
The ideal candidate would have considerable knowledge of the study of New Media and Digital Culture in the humanities, especially in the areas of digital methods and critical internet culture. He or she will also have demonstrable affinity with the areas of media arts, media history, media theory and social media critique. Up-to-date Internet skills are essential, as is current knowledge of digital culture as evidenced by active participation in online culture. Practical experience in working analytically with online platforms (e.g., Wikipedia, Twitter, Facebook and YouTube) and web-based applications (e.g., wikis) is highly desirable.
The new media and digital culture team is part of the Media Studies department and concerns itself with research strategies for the critical study of Internet culture. The Lecturer will teach on both the bachelor's and master's degree levels, in courses concerned with such topics as data journalism, media theory, new media practice, new media research methods, media history as well as contemporary themes in digital culture. The Lecturer may also teach more general courses in Media Studies on BA level, in the program of Media and Information. Ideally, candidates also would have research interests and academic ambitions in new media and digital culture.
