PROFESSOR IN DESIGN AND COMPUTATION
FACULTY OF ARCHITECTURE, DESIGN AND PLANNING
Design creates the future. Bring your vision for research and teaching in design and computation to a creative and internationally renowned group of academics in the Design Lab at the Faculty of Architecture, Design and Planning. Our strengths are in computational design, interaction design, and electronic media arts. We teach principles of computation, interaction, and design within the context of innovative design studios at the undergraduate and graduate level. We have a dynamic and cutting edge research program funded through grants from the Australian Research Council.
The Faculty of Architecture, Design and Planning at the University of Sydney is internationally recognised for its teaching on a wide range of highly sought after undergraduate and graduate degrees. We have extensive dedicated design studios, the best-equipped design computing and digital architecture laboratories and the largest architecture, urban design and planning library in the Southern Hemisphere. In addition to our Design Lab, our research disciplines include Architecture and Urbanism, Urban and Regional Planning (including the Planning Research Centre) and Architectural Science. Our goal is to be the leader in the region, building on its traditional links and those with Asia.
At a time of expansion and repositioning for the future, we have welcomed eight new academic staff members over the past two years and now look forward to making a new strategic appointment of a Professor in Design and Computation. A cross-disciplinary research interest that intersects with or is tangential to the research projects currently ongoing in the Design Lab will be viewed favourably, as will a broad range of scientific and artistic fields that relate to design.
As the Professor you will contribute to the research and teaching in computational design, interaction design or electronic media arts, at both the undergraduate and postgraduate levels, and contribute to the formation of a new multi-disciplinary research cluster with other academic staff in the faculty. A born leader, you will identify new research directions that will help foster the faculty’s research culture.
A competitive salary (which includes a base salary Professor E, leave loading, up to 17% employer’s contribution to superannuation from the University) will be negotiated with the successful applicant. Assistance with relocation may also be provided. Membership of a University approved superannuation scheme is a condition of appointment for new appointees.
The appointment will be full-time continuing (tenured) and may be subject to the completion of a satisfactory probation.
CLOSING DATE: 19 July 2010 (11:30pm Sydney time)
