About the opportunity

The Sydney School of Architecture, Design and Planning is an internationally acknowledged centre for intellectual, scientific and creative research, and attracts the highest quality scholars in Australia. The School of Architecture, Design and Planning is committed to a sustainable future for Sydney and the world. Creatively combining the disciplines of Architecture, Urbanism and Design, we explore how cities, spaces, buildings, technologies, and services can better meet the needs of people and society. Our educators and researchers are experimental, imaginative, and critical, innovating at the boundaries of their disciplines and creating exciting and engaging learning experiences for our students - the global citizens of tomorrow.

Design is a rapidly growing and highly successful discipline within the school. Our design research explores the role of design for speculating on the future, and to envision, define and inform the interactions and experiences between people and digital and emerging technologies. Pushing the boundaries of pedagogical practice in Interaction and Innovation, we encourage our students to critically rethink and prototype new objects, systems, experiences, and materials that shape human experience and life on the planet through the lens of design. Recognising that design cannot happen in isolation, we actively collaborate across disciplines and with external partners, including industry, not-for-profit, government and community groups and organisations.

The school is now seeking to appoint an outstanding academic at the level of Lecturer in Social or/and Service Design to join our rapidly growing and highly successful discipline.

Your key responsibilities will be to:

  • co-ordinate and teach across our growing design programs, including Bachelor of Design (Interaction Design), Master of Design and Masters of Interaction Design and Electronic Arts
  • develop curriculum and delivery in whole or part of selected core and elective units of study, including design studios where appropriate
  • make a significant research contribution to the School.
