Fellow in Design Innovation (Design for Services)

The University of Dundee has initiated a new Fellowship Scheme.  This scheme allows  flexibility to appoint staff at a range of different contract levels. Under the theme of Design Innovation we are seeking a fellow in Design for Services. 

Design for Services represents an integrated cross-disciplinary cluster of expertise that is internationally distinctive and innovative in scope. Embracing service design, design ethnography, strategic innovation and design management, we believe in breaking down boundaries between teaching, research and consultancy, between students, faculty and those ‘outside the academy’, between thinking and doing. Our mission is to create a vibrant space where all with a stake in the future of design for services can gather, act and reflect, consolidate knowledge and share. We are looking for an adventurous, open-minded, critically aware thinker with an enthusiasm for understanding the possibilities of the design for services in transforming public, private and third sector organisations and their offerings.

Dundee Fellows will be appointed to a permanent academic post, mostly but not exclusively at Lecturer level.  There may be some flexibility to offer positions at Senior Lecturer, Reader or Professorial level in exceptional circumstances.

We are particularly keen to make theses appointments attractive to candidates who are typically under represented in the areas of Art, Science and Engineering by offering flexibility and support through part time or full time contracts, flexible working hours and child care or carer support.

Postholders will retain the title of Dundee Fellow for the first 5 years of their appointment automatically, transferring to the regular academic title of Lecturer, Senior Lecturer/Reader or Professor at the end of the 5 year Fellowship period depending upon the level of progression and promotion after 5 years of being appointed.

Fellows will be appointed to research and teaching contracts, reflecting the University’s commitment to teaching as an integral part of an academic career.  They will have a workload during the first 5 years of appointment which will be heavily focused on research although it will contain some teaching responsibility, which will gradually increase over the 5 years of the Fellowship to develop their teaching experience, including PhD supervision.
