BA Graphic Communication Design at Central Saint Martins is a three-year undergraduate course with a typical enrolment of more than 450 students. The course supports interdisciplinary, hybrid and specialist designers, has a longstanding reputation for experimental approaches to new technologies valuing diversity in all its forms.

The role of the Lead Tutor, Digital will be to work across student groups and cohorts, introducing creative coding as a tool and supporting various student projects that challenge and explore digital beyond its predetermined/assumed media. This could include web design and development, physical computing, virtual and augmented reality, user experience or interface design, data visualisation, artificial intelligence or machine learning, and dynamic typography.

Central Saint Martins is a world-leading centre for arts and design education. Its reputation stems from the creative energy of its staff and students and the stellar achievements of its graduates nationally and internationally. The nine programmes at CSM explore the boundaries of their discipline. Students and staff are continually alert to new ideas, and are curious and restless in developing beyond the expected norms of their subject, so emerging work is at the forefront of its area. CSM sits at the heart of London’s creative scene, and of one of Europe’s most dynamic new culture and innovation quarters at King’s Cross, making the college increasingly important to London’s cultural life, and indicative of our general desire to open up CSM to as broad an audience as possible.

The Graphic Communication Design programme at Central Saint Martins facilitates a large heterogeneous community of students and staff to thrive through communication practice in diverse and meaningful ways. We ask and answer questions through and about graphic communication design. The staff are a forward-thinking and outward-facing team who value pedagogic innovation, critical practice and explorative approaches to the possibilities of the discipline.

We are looking for a motivated individual with experience teaching in a higher education context. You will have a distinct perspective on the relevance and a passion for the possibility of computational approaches to contemporary graphic design. You will take a dynamic approach to subject and be actively engaged in practice or research directly relevant to the Graphic Communication Design community at CSM. You will have a postgraduate qualification, or equivalent experience, and a track record of contributions to the advancement of computational approaches in the context of graphic and/or communication design.

In return, University of the Arts London offers generous leave, an attractive pension and a commitment to your continuing personal development and training in an environment that encourages excellence, creativity and diversity. Relocation assistance is available.
