Interaction design at AHO has seen a growing demand for teaching staff, and we are now looking to extend our staff with a 4 year 50% position.

This position will be responsible for teaching curriculum that covers various parts of interaction design, with a focus on concept development, exploration in tangible interactions, as well as Web and screen based experiences. We are seeking someone with experience from a broad range of digital design projects, both artistic and commercial. In particular, we are seeking someone with experience from developing detailed interaction design and designing delicate user experiences, as well as planning digital services and creative exploration. The applicant’s own practice and experience could cover both technical and design-related themes from across the digital sector. A broad design-background that also covers service or industrial design would also be prioritized.
The applicant will need to meet high international standards at all levels with a clear foundation in interaction design suited to a higher education school specializing in design. We are interested in a practiced designer who is also an accomplished educator with experience, a strong portfolio and a supported by engaged pedagogy up to Master’s level.
