Lab4Living (L4L) is part of the Art and Design Research Centre and is a significant contributor to the Centre’s standing, nationally and internationally. Recently the Lab gained a major research award (£8m) funded by Research England through the Expanding Excellence in England (E3) programme to investigate the 100-year life. We are now looking to appoint 2 Readers to further enhance the existing skill set and research expertise of the team and to extend the reach and impact of our research. 

You will be a core member of the L4L management team and play an active role in fostering its vibrant interdisciplinary research culture. As well as contributing to activities associated with the day to day running of the Lab you will be integral in the development of new national and international initiatives including the establishment of the Design4Ageing Academy.

As Reader you will deliver high quality design research outputs, securing external funding and undertaking a body of research that relates to the 100-year Life and the Future Home. 

Mentorship of Early Career Researchers within the Lab and across the wider Art and Design Research Centre is an important aspect of the role. In addition you will be actively involved in supporting the PhD community including supervising PhD students.

You must have a PhD or equivalent academic standing and have an internationally recognised research profile and evidence of high quality peer-reviewed research publications in a relevant field. 

For this job we particularly welcome applications from black, Asian and minority ethnic (BAME) candidates who are underrepresented in this area at Sheffield Hallam. 

For non-EU applicants, we may be able to offer a certificate of sponsorship for this job if required. 

We welcome applications for job-share, part-time and flexible working arrangements
