Di­rec­tor of Com­put­ing and Dig­i­tal Tech­nolo­gies

THE (Times Higher Education) - - NEWS -

The Uni­ver­sity is seek­ing to re­cruit a Di­rec­tor of Com­put­ing and Dig­i­tal Tech­nolo­gies to launch a new aca­demic dis­ci­pline. The new Di­rec­tor will be ex­pected to de­velop a suite of teach­ing pro­grammes and build re­search and pro­fes­sional ac­tiv­ity from scratch, within the con­text of the Uni­ver­sity’s Strate­gic Plan. An early pri­or­ity will be to de­velop a busi­ness plan and vi­sion. The new Di­rec­tor will re­cruit, man­age and de­velop his/her own team. The role will in­volve mar­ket­ing the pro­grammes, both within the Uni­ver­sity and ex­ter­nally, and build­ing re­la­tion­ships and place­ment op­por­tu­ni­ties. The new sub­ject area will sit within the De­part­ment of Me­dia, Cul­ture and Lan­guage, while it es­tab­lishes it­self, and the Di­rec­tor will sit on the de­part­men­tal top team. Ideal can­di­dates will have an aca­demic back­ground and some re­search cred­i­bil­ity in a rel­e­vant field, which could be com­puter and data science, com­puter games tech­nol­ogy, com­puter net­works, dig­i­tal me­dia com­put­ing, or game de­sign, pro­duc­tion and devel­op­ment, etc. Can­di­dates must en­joy tak­ing on a project and build­ing some­thing new. They must un­der­stand re­search and the REF. They will bring a track­record of pro­gramme devel­op­ment and strong project man­age­ment skills in de­vel­op­ing new cour­ses, com­bined with ex­pe­ri­ence of manag­ing peo­ple and bud­gets. They will demon­strate ex­cel­lent vi­sion, as well as proven lead­er­ship es­pe­cially in a start­up set­ting. The abil­ity to de­velop some­thing new from scratch will be crit­i­cal. Can­di­dates must be highly driven, am­bi­tious and re­source­ful self­starters. At the Uni­ver­sity of Roe­hamp­ton, Lon­don, we change lives by help­ing our stu­dents to de­velop the con­fi­dence, knowl­edge and adapt­abil­ity they need for a suc­cess­ful grad­u­ate ca­reer and ful­fill­ing life. With in­ter­na­tional reach, our re­search in­forms pol­icy, en­riches cul­ture and im­proves peo­ple’s lives. We have world­class re­search across all of our aca­demic de­part­ments and in the last Re­search Ex­cel­lence Frame­work, we were most re­search­in­ten­sive mod­ern uni­ver­sity in the coun­try. We have a proud and dis­tin­guished his­tory dat­ing back to the 1840s. Through the old­est of our four Col­leges, White­lands, we have pro­vided higher ed­u­ca­tion to women for longer than any other uni­ver­sity in the coun­try. Our val­ues come from this rich his­tory, built on com­mu­nity, en­gage­ment and part­ner­ship. The Uni­ver­sity has a beau­ti­ful, vi­brant park­land cam­pus, is lo­cated in the heart of south­west Lon­don and of­fers ex­cel­lent fa­cil­i­ties for re­search­ing, learn­ing, teach­ing, and work­ing. For fur­ther de­tails of the role, please visit www.min­er­vasearch.com/roe­hamp­ton. To ap­ply, please send a cover let­ter and CV to roe­hamp­ton@min­er­vasearch.com

The clos­ing date is: 2 Novem­ber 2018. The Uni­ver­sity is an equal op­por­tu­ni­ties and ‘dis­abil­ity con­fi­dent’ em­ployer.
