Umeå Institute of Design is one of Sweden's few design
education environments with post-graduate studies in industrial
design. We have a strong tradition of applied research in
collaboration with external partners, and have recently increased
our basic research in design with several new PhD student, post doc
and faculty positions. Higlighted research areas at UID are
user understanding, processes for creativity and
our digital everyday.
The PhD programme at UID is five years, and comprises courses,
research, disseratation work and teaching or other departemental
work. Open positions are announced here when available.
