Role Description

We are investing to further strengthen our nationally leading activities in the Circular Economy through appointment of a scholar with the skills to conduct high-quality research and teach on our MDes and other postgraduate programs. 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.

Our Centre for Competitive Creative 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.  We believe in socially responsible development through the use of design to deliver economic growth and social improvement and 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.

You will have a PhD in a topic of relevance to Design for the Circular Economy and post-doctoral experience in a relevant practitioner tradition such as engineering, product, industrial or business model design. You will have extensive experience of conducting high impact, excellent research evidenced through publications in 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. If you have ambition to build your own reputation through research, an impressive publication record, 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. We actively consider flexible working options such as part-time, compressed or flexible hours and/or an element of homeworking, and commit to exploring the possibilities for each role.
