Brunel Design School is seeking to appoint a Lecturer/Senior Lecturer with all-round skillsets in design and innovation strategy. Knowledge and skills in interaction design would also be highly desirable.
You will primarily teach on programmes such as BSc/MDes Design, BSc /MDes Product Design Engineering, and BA/MDes Industrial Design, and postgraduate design programmes. You will also provide specialist support to undergraduate and postgraduate students in their major/dissertation project work. You will work collaboratively within course teams, deploying specialist expertise to develop pedagogy and the curriculum in innovative and critical directions.
Around 40% of your time is for research, and you are expected to enhance the school’s research portfolio through publication, research/innovation/impact generation.
You will have experience of higher education (or comparable context), an ability to participate in curriculum development and assessment, a sound knowledge of the theories and practices in design and innovation strategy, e.g. product analysis, innovation strategy and processes, creativity, design management, interaction design, user experience, and service design.
You should be comfortable working with diverse cohorts of students and committed to a teaching approach that integrates theory and practice and will engage students through a combination of innovative pedagogy, knowledge exchange and research.
You’ll have or should be willing to attain, with Brunel’s support, a relevant teaching qualification or recognition e.g., Fellowship status of the Higher Education Academy.
You should be a researcher who is keen to work in a multidisciplinary environment, and use your academic and/or industry-based experience to support the development of student work. You’ll be proactive and actively contribute to the programme’s aims and vision. You should have a strong understanding of the contemporary context of Design and Innovation Strategy and be engaged in relevant networks and communities of practice.
Brunel has a strong track-record of securing research funding from EU and other international sources.
