Come and work with me teaching digital journalism

Yes it’s Jobs news. No not that Jobs! (oh and there’s no laptop included, Sorry!)

I’ve got some interesting projects on the go this year (more on that in coming months)  so I’ve got a bit of breathing space in my teaching.  The result is that there’s a job going at my place to teach digital journalism.

It’s a fixed term contract and 0.5 but it’s a great chance to get some teaching under your belt (and work with some good people).

You can check out the job at the uni website. Follow the link for vacancies, check Academic and it should be in that list.

I would give you a direct link, but our job website is doing odd security things (apparently to stop unscrupulous jobs site scrapers) so details below if you want to know right now:
