Deadline for applications: 1 September 2017

The ambition of HDK, Academy of Design and Crafts, is to be one of the most attractive and exciting art universities in Europe. Here, we research and educate in design, crafts and arts education. The Department is engaged in big and small societal issues, and contributes to a sustainable society and a better future.

We are looking for a total of 5 doctoral students in the subjects Crafts and/or Design. The number of doctoral students in each subject is determined during the recruitment process.

Design at HDK in Gothenburg consists of a BA-program and three MA-programs: Design, Child Culture Design and Business & Design, see http://www.hdk.gu.se/en/programmes-courses/design. The research education in Design has existed since 2000 and is an important component in building so called “complete environment”, stressing the interaction and cooperation between research, research education, education and society as such.

The common starting point is the holistic approach to design activity and artistic competence which is independent of the design direction and design areas, but with a clear societal orientation and humanistic profile where responsibility and ethical considerations, in terms of global, intersectional and sustainability perspectives, play a major role. Important and strategic areas, which we would like to see design research projects developed in relation to are: child & youth culture; participation, interventions & development processes; heritage, migration & politics; organization & management; ageing & health and eating & food culture.

The subject of design at HDK is thus intended to establish a dialogue between practice-based, theoretical and societal questions pertaining to design and design practice. The subject focuses on design as practice through expression and form with the help of relevant methods and theories. Design competency is characterised by the ability to fuse, in a meaningful expression and form, a diversity of knowledge perspectives. The subject design is something that develops in the dialogue between education, research and the society at large. The aim of doctoral (third-cycle) education in design is to educate with the help of methods relevant to the subject field both in practice and in theory, with a focus on developing the ability to autonomously and critically expand the base of knowledge with regard to breadth as well as depth.

The aim of the programme is to develop the knowledge and skills required to independently and autonomously be able to pursue artistic research, as well as to contribute to the formation of knowledge within the subject. This includes the ability to identify, formulate and examine artistic and/or scientific problems and issues within the design field. Doctoral (third-cycle) education in design shall develop the ability of doctoral students to form, explore, analyse and discuss design in social and cultural contexts, as well as to demonstrate critical and reflective capacity in relation to the research field.
