INTERACTION DESIGN PROFESSORSHIP AT THE INSTITUTE OF DESIGN
The Umeå Institute of Design is a small, exclusive industrial design
department at Umeå University in north Sweden. During the last 10 years it
has been widely recognized as one of Europe's leading industrial design
schools and has a broad international reputation for qualified collaboration
with industry throughout the world. The three master programmes (interaction
design, advanced product design and transportation design) are international
and have students from more than 20 different countries.
Due to our expanding program, and a coming retirement, the Institute is
happy to announce that we will be seeking a full professor in Industrial
Design in late 2006 for the master programme in Interaction Design.
This coming professor will also serve as program leader and will thus be
responsible for maintaining and further developing the content and direction
of the program in our international network.
We will be looking for candidates with distinguished professional
backgrounds as well as broad pedagogical experience. The program in Umeå is
run in English and thus a fluent command of this language is a prerequisite.
Last day for application is November 13.
More detailed information and application requirements are available in the
attached PDF document.
