Goldsmiths, University of London is a world-leading centre of educational excellence where ground-breaking research meets innovative teaching and thinking. We’re looking for inspiring and talented people to help build on our global reputation while also growing personally in a true learning organisation.
The Department of Computing at Goldsmiths is a vibrant, innovative and intellectually stimulating environment in which to work and study. Over the last two decades, we have developed a unique view of computing as a creative practice-based discipline: we pride ourselves on pushing the boundaries of computer science research to the limits of other disciplines. We also take pride on our mission of teaching students to be innovative and practical professionals, to be able to think for themselves, and to bring creative solutions to employers and to society. This is true both for our on-campus students and our distance-learning students around the world. For over twenty years, we have been producing the distance learning computing programmes for the University of London (the world’s oldest distance learning provider). Our research is radically multi-disciplinary and varied, with a span that encompasses (a) strong emphasis on interactivity, virtual reality, and creative uses of computers, (b) data analytics in medical and commercial applications, and (c) quantum informatics and financial technologies, alongside much more as well.
Teaching Requirements: We are looking for people who can join the UX teaching team, where you will teach topics, such Designing Digital Interactions, Interaction Design in our undergraduate programmes, and co-teach and supervise UX students in our MSc in UX Engineering programme. You will also play a key role in supervising projects in this area. The post holder will be teaching in both our undergraduate and post-graduate programmes, possibly on campus and online.
Research / Scholarship Requirements: We are looking for candidates with an established track record in research or in the UX practice community. We welcome innovative ideas on engaging students in both the theoretical and practical aspects of studying for a career in UX, whether as a designer, researcher or engineer.
