About the job
Reference: A3928Description: The discipline of Design is evolving and responding to rapid technological advances as well as responding to optimal use of precious resources and ecologies. Plymouth University is part of a new evolution of design engaging with the challenges facing the twenty first century through new open-design thinking. We have a strong interdisciplinary academic reputation with international standing across design practice and research. Our multi-disciplinary design courses have a worldwide reputation; our students are consistently winning some of the most prestigious global design competitions.
We are looking for a strong, visionary and creative individual to complement and work with our academic team particularly in the disciplines of Designer Maker and Product Design. Ideally you will have a strong academic and research profile but we will also consider practitioners who can demonstrate a solid academic research potential. Creative experimentation and passion for excellence are personal qualities that will underpin a broad but deep knowledge of contemporary Industrial Design issues, particularly around sustainable artefact production.
You will be expected to have a key role in teaching design thinking, processes and skills (including CAD), and be part of the design studio team at undergraduate level. Alongside this, you will also be expected to carry out research and have a plan for publishing work in the field of your expertise. There will also be the opportunity to contribute to postgraduate level and supervise PhD students. You will have an enthusiasm for creatively shaping the academic environment, promoting new ideas and initiatives to innovate both within the curriculum and the broader development of the Design department as well as the whole School. You will be an excellent communicator, team player, inspiring teacher and colleague.
