Professorship (W3) Industrial Design / Design Methods and Experiments
A recognised designer is sought to fill the vacancy for a design professorship in the Industrial Design department. He or she should have proven experience in a wide range of developing and applying design methods in design processes as well as having an appropriate portfolio and teaching experience.
In addition to fulfilling the general appointment requirements according to § 35 HSG LSA, the successful candidate is expected to have:
– A teaching concept that conveys a variety of methods and experimentation in design processes, and that makes design itself tangible as a discipline which – for example, through prototyping, experimental setups, simulations, interventions, participation and other methods – not only creates representational-situational realities but also appropriately documents and makes available knowledge about processes and interactions
– In the BA “Industriedesign” course and the master’s degree in Industrial Design, an understanding for methodology in design processes should be developed and should be applied in elementary exercises during the 1st and 2nd years of study as well as in complex design projects
– Organisation and implementation of teaching on the study program including the latest developments and practical applications of methods in design processes
– Participation in the development of tertiary education in the Design Faculty and the implementation of cross-disciplinary forms of cooperation
Direct contact to topics that are located within an art university are also desirable, as well as committed participation in academic administration. The position is principally limited to five years; exemptions will be decided in the course of the appointment proceedings. Remuneration is paid in accordance with legal and budgetary conditions. Women are strongly encouraged to apply. Severely disabled applicants will be given preferential consideration in the event of equal qualification.
