Lancaster Institute for the Contemporary Arts at Lancaster University is seeking to enhance its already strong national and international profile of excellence, and is expanding as part of a programme of investment by the University by appointing a new Senior Lecturer in Design (People, Products, Places).

You should have a research interest in design for people, products or places including subjects such as architecture; behavioural change; product design; urban design, or design areas related to cities.

You should be able to demonstrate a strong research profile in design for people, products or places that complements our existing strengths in design theory, design management and strategy, service design, product design, digital design, and design for sustainability. You will be a member of the research centre ImaginationLancaster, and you will be expected to pursue a research agenda and produce outputs at a level appropriate for submission to the Research Excellence Framework (REF) 2021 and beyond. You will be expected to contribute to ImaginationLancaster's reputation and development with relevant research grants.
