We are looking for skilled educators and creatives in media and design theory to join us at the Institute of Creativity and Innovation (ICI), a dual-degree institute founded by Xiamen University (XMU) and the University for the Creative Arts (UCA) in 2020.

We are offering positions in teaching modules that develop students’ understanding of the importance of theory and context in relation to practice. These modules utilise an innovative teaching approach, combining lectures and seminar discussions with creative workshops that guide students in considering the theoretical and contextual relevance of their creative works. The first of these units teaches students to interpret a range of design and media through semiotics and according to contextual frameworks such as representation, globalisation, and postmodernism. The second unit explores a range of theories discussing how understandings of design and media are constructed through consumption.

The right candidates will have a PhD in a relevant area (e.g. design or humanities), along with a teaching qualification or equivalent professional experience with at least two consecutive years of higher education teaching. Active research in the field or ongoing professional practice are considered assets. This position would be particularly well suited to recent PhD graduates seeking university positions and presents opportunities to develop teaching, design and/or research-oriented careers.

We are a special department at the ICI specialising in core skills shared by all disciplines. As such, the modules you teach allow the students to develop interdisciplinary design skills that enhance their knowledge base that can apply to a range of personal, creative, and theoretical abilities. We embrace and strongly encourage enterprising and collaborative teaching styles across all our modules and encourage teachers to adapt and modify content to suit their styles and specialisms. This is a unique opportunity to be part of an institution at its inception and to contribute to its future direction and success.

By joining the ICI you will become part of the international community of designers, architects and researchers involved in visual arts, environmental studies, and new media. Our educators are involved in pioneering projects and teaching methodologies which they apply through research and mentoring practices. We are a community of expats committed to promoting diversity and inclusivity within teaching and working environments.

ICI is located on XMU’s Zhangzhou campus, which boasts a park-like environment, with mountains to the west, Amoy Bay to the north, and the South China Sea to the east. It’s a short commute to beautiful beaches, or the city of Xiamen, the multicultural centre of South-East China.

UCA offers a competitive compensation package including visa application expense allowance, relocation allowance, health and accident insurance, annual repatriation allowance, and accommodation.
