Design at Manchester School of Art is renowned for its' international and world-class research in Design Driven Innovation, Design for Health and Wellbeing, Regenerative Design, and the expansive fields of Textile and Craft based material practices, alongside its' award-winning pedagogy in collaborative Design practice.

Our aim is to create a viable future by facilitating responsible cultural, social, material, and technological transformations, and we place value on responding to the needs of industry and society to address critical challenges. Our ambition is to advance design responsibly for the benefit of society and to address global challenges, whilst pushing the boundaries of research led design and pedagogy to foster the agenda setters of the future.

Our research and teaching builds on our extensive heritage and connections to a wide range of creative industries which has enabled us to become one of the leading providers of design education nationally, and our research and education are consistently highly ranked in subject league tables. By virtue of this, we are well placed to provide unique opportunities for collaborative co-creation across our global network of educational partners, research associations and industry professionals.

Building upon our outstanding performance in REF2021, the department is looking to bolster its' research capacity and now seeks an ambitious Professor in Design to lead and contribute to our future research ambitions.

The role
The role of Professor is one of the highest academic distinctions conferred by the University and post holders are expected to have an international reputation and have made a sustained, significant and original impact to knowledge in their particular field, and to contribute and operate at the highest levels of seniority.
