We are looking for an outstanding and eminent person with extensive experience in the design and application of new technologies.

The position will be established primarily in the Digital Media course, which is offered in cooperation with Bremen University. The position should also emphatically have an interdisciplinary influence on the Integrated Design and Fine Arts courses.

The requirements are a university degree in a relevant subject area, as well as:
–Outstanding art and design qualifications (e.g. publications, exhibitions, awards or prizes)
–Proven research experience in the new technologies, particularly in connection with art and design
–Technical and practical knowledge of and skills in new (digital) technologies
–The ability and willingness to teach in both English and German
–The willingness to develop interdisciplinary collaboration with the Fine Arts and Integrated Design courses as well as the Faculty of Music

Expected, furthermore, is an aptitude for teaching proven through experience (usually at least one year’s teaching experience is required); also expected are the willingness to actively participate in the development of the University of the Arts Bremen, to cooperate with colleagues, to engage in interdisciplinary projects, and to contribute to the academic self-government boards.

In addition, the recruitment requirements pursuant to section 116 of the Bremen Code for Public Employees apply.
