Job description  

Due to the continued expansion of student numbers on our Dubai Campus we are looking for highly motivated and qualified academics to join us at an exciting time in our growth. 

The Design school on the Dubai campus seeks to recruit enthusiastic academics with experience in teaching and scholarship or research.  Successful candidates will be expected to build research over time and showcase innovative teaching pedagogies. Successful candidates will also be expected to develop strong links to colleagues at the Scottish campuses to deliver high-quality learning and teaching, to contribute to the continued development of the programmes offered to students, and to develop external engagement endeavours in association (and as appropriate) with the Academic Schools in Edinburgh, Dubai, Galashiels, and Malaysia.  

The successful candidate will possess broad practical and theoretical knowledge of various topics in 21st-century interior architecture and design practices and theories. We are particularly interested in receiving applications from candidates with expertise in Co-design, Contemporary Interior Architecture and Design – creative practices and theories, business practices and ethics – and Design Thinking 2.0. Postholders will play a key role in connecting with our internal and external stakeholders to embed interior architecture design practices and principles into the curriculum, overseeing the development of industry-facing programmes and the creation of courses to support student employability. 

Teaching and scholarship or research should be grounded in 21st century design studies with appropriate input from historical, theoretical, and practical perspectives. Given the broad, fast-moving, and collaborative nature of today’s industries and associated technologies, we expect the successful individual to design new content and courses proactively, within and across the traditional discipline boundaries. We also expect the successful applicant to cooperatively contribute to teaching existing courses as well as create new ones across the campuses where and as it benefits the student experience.

The role will be based at the University’s campus in Dubai. Programmes will be delivered in English and so fluency in English is essential. An induction programme will be delivered to all new academic staff on Heriot-Watt’s standards and values, and to give practical experience on preparation, delivery, and assessment of teaching.
