Qualifications

The School of Design is looking for tenure or teaching track faculty, especially at the assistant professor rank. Successful applicants will teach at all levels of the undergraduate and masters programs, frequently team-teach with colleagues from complementary disciplines, and serve as thesis advisors to masters students, and doctoral students where appropriate.

The School invites collaborative applicants with the following qualifications. We are particularly interested in candidates who can bridge across multiple areas of expertise listed below.

1. A design masters degree or equivalent professional expertise in one or more of the following design disciplines:

Communication or Graphic design: emphasis on the exploration of communication design in real-world contexts with strong graphic design underpinnings (stellar understanding and application of typography, imaging, grid systems, color, composition, etc.), and a demonstrated agility in a range of digital media (knowledge of, and practice in, screen-based communication and prototyping tools).

Interaction design: emphasis on pioneering work that expands our experience of products, environments, systems, and services, through a hybridity of digital and physical means. Candidates should have a keen interest in emerging technologies (e.g. conversational interfaces, artificial intelligence and mixed reality) and a range of prototyping approaches.

Service design: emphasis on interaction design, social, and environmental concerns, and a familiarity with the theoretical and practical foundations of service design and their implications in broad contexts.

2. University level teaching experience at the undergraduate and/or graduate levels or equivalent professional experience. We are especially interested in candidates who are willing and qualified to teach at all levels of the curriculum.

3. Additional expertise in one or more of the following areas is welcomed:

  • Narrative & storytelling
  • User experience
  • Design for sustainability
  • Social design
  • Design thinking & strategy
  • Design studies
