We encourage applications from candidates who combine interdisciplinary research and creative practice.
The successful candidate is expected to be an excellent researcher who contributes regularly to relevant top-tier conferences and journals; a teacher able to teach a mix of theory and studio/design modules for both undergraduate and graduate students, and be an effective supervisor of undergraduate and graduate research.
