This post is based in Media, Culture, Heritage (MCH) at the School of Arts and Cultures (SACS). Whilst there will be an initial focus on developing modules for the new Combined Honours BA in Digital Cultures, you will contribute across MCH's curriculum (BA, MA and PhD) on subjects related to digital heritage, cultural and communication studies. You will help to broker links between MCH/SACS and other parts of the university, for example, the Institute of Coding, the National Innovation Centre for Data, and forthcoming initiatives in interdisciplinary and inter-Faculty teaching and research. 

We particularly welcome applications from established academics and researchers, with experience in multi/interdisciplinary academic environments, who would be keen to take advantage of the many opportunities for collaboration across disciplines at Newcastle University, for example between the subjects taught in MCH (heritage, gallery, and museum studies, film, journalism, PR, media and cultural studies), and History, Archaeology, Architecture, English Literature and Language, Creative Arts Practice, Computing Science, Psychology, Geography, and Neuroscience. 

The School of Arts and Cultures has an outstanding record of teaching and research. In the recent UK 'Research Assessment Exercise, over 80% of the School's research was rated internationally excellent or world leading. Staff teach and research across a broad range of subjects. Our teaching also regularly receives excellent feedback, as demonstrated by our excellent standing in the Communication and Media Studies league tables where MCH is consistently ranked in a high position in the Complete University Guide. You will contribute to maintaining and improving this profile. 

The Institute holds a silver Athena SWAN award in addition to the University's silver award in recognition of our good employment practices for the advancement of gender equality. The University also holds the HR Excellence in Research award for our work to support the career development of our researchers, and is a member of the Euraxess initiative supporting researchers in Europe.
