Faculty of
Design
and Art

Faculty of Design and Art at the Free University of Bozen-Bolzano is one of the leading institutions in the Italian panorama of design research and education. Both the Bachelor in Design and the Master in Eco-Social Design follow a transdisciplinary approach, reaching across multiple disciplines of design and beyond. In the project-oriented teaching we integrate humanities, socio-economic disciplines, crafts and technologies, and we collaborate with partners of the civil society, companies and institutions. Students work as autonomous as possible and tackle both “real world” issues and utopian visions – striving for both social relevance and beauty.

For coming winter semester 2016/17 (and possibly onwards) we are looking for EXCELLENT DESIGNERS TO LEAD THE TEACHING IN THE FOLLOWING AREAS:

Project leader in Product Design

We are looking for an excellent designer to lead a semester-long course in product design. We see product design as a wide open field and look at it on the widest sense of what it is and could be. We are dealing with objects but also spaces and services, touching mundane daily issues, objects and questions. We collaborate with specialists and professionals around concrete questions as much as we look forward trying to design the next utopia. A project leader in this course should challenge and would certainly be challenged into bringing all the above and much more through the course and her/his teaching.
