Associate Professor / Professor in Design Critique at AHO
The Oslo School of Architecture and Design (AHO), Norway
Apply by May 15, 2018
The Institute of Design at the Oslo School of Architecture and Design calls for applications for a permanent 100% position as Associate Professor / Professor with a focus on design critique. The position is connected to the strategic direction of design education and research at the Institute.
It is based on identified needs to support and further develop critical and conceptual aspects of design inquiry, criticism and communication, including historiographic and forward-facing perspectives as well as their connection across domains of design. The further development and application of design history and theory is essential to our design educational curriculum and needs to be integrated into our existing programme as well as to augment our research project portfolios and content. This position is geared towards developing, building and shaping design theory and history and its application at IDE within a wider international framework of transdisciplinary Design Studies.
We are looking for a highly motivated and early career candidate to:
– Build theoretical and critical knowledge about design in which relations between theory and practice are central, and between design legacies and current and projected research.
– To develop, teach and research across the areas of design theory.
– To work between different design domains, thematics and projects at the Institute of Design
– To build both specific frameworks and concepts as well as ones furthered and applied through collaborative transdisciplinary inquiry.
– Support design theory at bachelor level education and especially provide assistance for masters and doctoral students and research projects concerning design history, theory and critique.
Application deadline is May 15th 2018.
Questions can be directed to Head of Institute Professor Rachel Troye: firstname.lastname@example.org or Professor of Interdisciplinary Design and Director of The Centre for Design Research Andrew Morrison: Andrew.Morrison@aho.no
