London’s Victoria and Albert museum is recruiting a resident games designer.

The establishment has teamed up with Dundee’s University of  Abertay on the unusual venture, and the successful candidate will create  software inspired by its exhibits

The residency will run for six months in London followed by a stint in Dundee  and is open to all UK-based game developers with an interest in working on  software inspired by V&A exhibitions, particularly Britain  1500-1900.

“Games design is a growing industry in the UK and Britain is  now one of the leaders in the world in this field. It is a highly skilled form  of design that requires both creative and scientific skills,” V&A residency  co-ordinator Ruth Lloyd told Wired.

“The V&A’s first  games design residency is an exciting opportunity for the museum to recognise  and support this form of design and will offer a games designer access to  specialist expertise as well as use of the V&A’s extraordinary collections  as creative inspiration to produce new work.”

The successful candidate will have access to a monthly bursary and studio space, as well as assistance  from museum and university staff and an unnamed “industry  mentor”.

Applications must be submitted by February 8 and further  information is available on the V&A website.
