We are seeking a motivated individual to provide proactive academic management across all courses within the recently formed UAL Creative Computing Institute. If you are an interdisciplinary academic with skills in the creative computing field, this role offers a fantastic platform to develop your career.

The UAL Creative Computing Institute at the University of the Arts London supports interdisciplinary teaching, research and knowledge exchange at the intersection of creativity and computational technologies. The Institute works across domains such as machine learning and artificial intelligence and explores how the contemporary world is being defined through human computer interaction and social platforms. 

University of the Arts London is a world top-two University for Art and Design in the QS World University Rankings® 2019. We offer an extensive range of courses in art, design, fashion, communication and performing arts. Our graduates go on to work in and shape the creative industries worldwide.

In this role you will ensure that the programme culture both delivers for students and staff. It will be your responsibly to develop with your course leaders a student-centred culture that performs well against university and sector metrics. 

You will hold an undergraduate and/or postgraduate degree in arts/design/creative computing and a PhD in a relevant field is desirable. You will also need a demonstrable understanding of the potential of the creative computing and arts research.

Having experience of creative practice at the intersection of art, design and computing will be an advantage in establishing your credibility to work within the UAL Creative Computing Institute.

UAL and the Creative Computing Institute highly values the diversity of all our staff and the enrichment this brings to our community. We are committed to an inclusive and supportive environment for all who come to work with us, and are actively working to promote equality and diversity for all staff regardless of age, caring responsibilities, disability, gender, gender identity, nationality, race, religious belief (or no belief) and sexual orientation.

The group aims to progress an LGBTQ+ agenda at UAL as well as organising social events for its members and other ‘ally’ staff members who wish to support the community.
