Professorships at the Institute of Design

The Umeå Institute of Design is a small, exclusive industrial design department at Umeå University in north Sweden. During the last 10 years it has been widely recognized as one of Europe’s leading industrial design schools and has a broad international reputation for qualified collaboration with industry throughout the world. The master programmes are international and have students from more than 20 different countries.

Due to our expanding program, and a coming retirement, the Institute is happy to announce that we will be seeking three, full professors in Industrial Design in late 2006 for the following master programmes:

These coming professors will also serve as program leaders and will thus be responsible for maintaining and further developing the content and direction of the program in our international network.

We will be looking for candidates with distinguished professional backgrounds as well as broad pedagogical experience. The program in Umeå is run in English and thus a fluent command of this language is a prerequisite.
