The role

The Lecturer in MA Industrial Design is responsible for teaching and on-going scholarship in MA Industrial Design.

The post-holder will work collaboratively within a course team, deploying specialist expertise to develop the subject in innovative and critical directions through teaching, collaboration, and scholarly design practice.

Why choose us?

Now is a crucial time for Central Saint Martins and the University of the Arts London. The pandemic and anti-racism movement in their own and intersecting ways set a new landscape for higher education in the creative arts, in which ways of teaching and operating will be reconsidered, and where the values of social justice and anti-racism must underpin everything we do. These conditions set both urgent challenges but also the potential to reflect on what we do. Central Saint Martins aims to engage with and lead the global debate about the arts, performance and design, and their role in societal transformation. We also aim to empower our graduates to be the leading practitioners in their field, as well as responsible citizens of the world. We hope you will consider joining our creative community. 

MA Industrial Design (MAID) is internationally recognised as a leader in postgraduate industrial design education. Through innovative pedagogy, research and external collaboration, the course develops methodological and critical processes in design practice with a mission to expand the disciplinary purview of industrial design. While MAID honours the traditional legacy of the subject, the course operates as space to continually reframe what industrial design is and means as a future-orientated practice. Staff and students employ critical and socially responsive methods to explore the application of industrial design in both market-led and societal contexts. Through plural and collaborative models of practice in contexts of object-orientated design, enterprise, speculation and social design, the course challenges the impacts of our practice, scopes emerging opportunities and develops new roles that extend the agency of the industrial designer in addressing the complex problems we face today.
