Ben Kirman writes:

Hi all, we’re currently looking for a Lecturer or Senior Lecturer (UK
equivalent to Assistant Prof) to join us on a permanent basis at the
School of Computer Science at the University of Lincoln, UK.

This is a great opportunity for anyone interested in continuing an
academic career in game studies, or moving over from an industry role.

Games teaching and research at Lincoln is multidisciplinary, and
although the position is situated within the Computer Science
department, we teach a lot of game design and game studies modules. A
technical background is not required.

You would join the very active games research group at Lincoln, where we
publish regularly in journals and conferences like DiGRA, ACE, CHI PLAY
and CHI.

Applications are open until Thursday 30th July:

Candidates should possess a PhD or equivalent experience, ideally in
computer science and preferably with a track record in the delivery of
Games Computing courses such as games programming, graphics programming,
games engines, AI in games, game design, game studies or social
computing. Experience of commercial computer games development would be
an advantage. You should be able to demonstrate a commitment to
maintaining the University’s high standards in teaching and learning.

The University of Lincoln is a forward-thinking, ambitious institution
and you will be working in the heart of a thriving, beautiful, safe and
friendly city. The School provides a stimulating environment for
academic research, and is located on the picturesque waterfront campus
in the historic and vibrant city of Lincoln. The University has just
announced a £130M investment programme, a significant part of which will
be invested in new, purpose-built facilities for the School of Computer
