This role will be based within the Centre for Competitive Creative Design (C4D): https://www.cranfield.ac.uk/centres/centre-for-competitive-creative-design
We are investing to further strengthen our nationally leading activities in the Circular Economy. Our Centre for Creative Competitive Design has been named by Business Week as one of the 'World's Best Design Schools' with a growing reputation for collaborative design-driven innovation. You will be joining a dynamic and creative team, working in an inspiring Niall McLaughlin designed building.
In this academic role, you will explore the synergies that occur at the boundaries of the creative industries, engineering, technology and management disciplines as they relate to the Circular Economy. Your research will unlock, embed, and realise sustainable design-driven product and service innovation in people, projects and organisations. Your research and teaching activities will inform and enthuse a new generation of specialists and help turn the promise of a Circular Economy into a reality.
You will have a PhD in a topic of relevance to innovation for the Circular Economy, with extensive experience of conducting high impact, excellent research evidenced through publications in the high quality, peer reviewed journals. You will also have an established track record of securing significant research funding from the research councils, government and industry as Principal or co-investigator.
We believe in socially responsible development through the use of design to deliver economic growth and social improvement. We are looking for creative like-minded people to join our team. We offer you the opportunity and resources to excel and further your career in a supportive, highly collaborative and internationally facing environment. As a University with a strong global outlook, we are committed to building and enhancing our relationships with our partners in Europe and beyond.
If you have ambition to build your own reputation through research, an impressive publications record and a great student teaching approach, and the ability to conduct high impact research then we’d like to hear from you.
At Cranfield, we value Diversity and Inclusion, and aim to create and maintain a culture in which everyone can work and study together harmoniously with dignity and respect and realise their full potential.
