The creation of this new post by the University of Wales, Aberystwyth is both an acknowledgement of the remarkable achievements of the Department of Theatre, Film & Television Studies in recent years, and a response to our need for an appointment to play a leading role in new developments currently taking place in the Department: most immediately, the introduction of a new degree, Media & Communication Studies, which will have at its heart the study of digitised and converging media, and the development of a range of skills and capacities to enable graduates to seek employment in these diverse industries.


The person appointed

For appointment as Professor, the University will seek evidence that you have reached the position of being an acknowledged authority in your subject area, with proven strengths and the ability to lead across research, teaching and academic development, and a national / international reputation.
