ABOUT THE NORTHUMBRIA SCHOOL OF DESIGN 

Northumbria School of Design has a global reputation for design-led research with an emphasis on practice, understanding and redefining problems, and making positive real-world change. Our staff, students and collaborators engage in developing new and innovative practices within design, and in innovation and research through design. As a School dedicated, to responsible design and innovation we want to promote working in an integrated way where education, research and knowledge exchange are connected through purposeful, practice-based research projects. 

The School is dedicated to nurturing an inclusive academic community delivering high quality, diverse and rich research, knowledge exchange and education across the sub-disciplines of design and in transdisciplinary collaborations internally and externally with collaborators from HEI and non-HEI partners. Some examples of the various topics, sectors and partners that we collaborate with include contemporary environmental impact across the fashion and textile value chaindigital creativity for wellbeingnew approaches to bereavement supportdesign for social innovation towards sustainabilityhow the digital is changing contemporary lifehealthy relationships between people; the internet and things through the ethos of crafttechnological design and humanitarian innovation in global contexts of marginalisation

University’s Interdisciplinary Research Themes like Global Development Futures and Gendered Violence and Abuse and recognised Peaks of Excellence areas such as Cultural and Creative Industries and Computerised Society and Digital Citizens

We embrace technologies as a means to explore, test and prototype both concepts and application. Our recently established Creative Technology Hub brings in knowledge of creative technology that encompasses the two dimensional (through code, data visualisation, AI and VR) with the three dimensional (electronics, digital weaving, maker culture and the internet of things). 

With these two complementary posts we are seeking to develop and grow research capacity in critical making at the interface between emerging technologies, craft, and responsible design. The roles will build on the School’s foundational contribution in Research Through Design (RTD) to utilise practice-based research, craft and making to support new understandings of design practice, theory and human experience. Intellectual academic endeavour through and in combination with embodied studio practice will be key. We expect the Fellows to provide leadership and academic mentoring while building connectivity in the School, Faculty and beyond.
