Postdoctoral scholarship in creative design for innovation in science and technology
Copenhagen Business School invites applications for a vacant one-year Postdoc in "Creative design for innovation in science and technology" under the Marie Curie DESIRE initial training network.
DESIRE is an Initial Training Network funded by the European Commission, Framework 7 under the Marie Curie Programme.
The aim of DESIRE is to make theoretical contributions to the field of creative design by bringing together expertise in human computer interaction, psychology, arts and design. The network aims to advance our understanding of creative design processes applied in the scientific and technological problem solving. This will lead to the elaboration of:
a.. theories and models of creative processes in general, and those involved in creative problem solving in particular, and
b.. methods, techniques and systems to support both creative design processes and creativity training.
The postdoc researcher will contribute to the integration of network research across teams, topics and application domains. The postdoc is a non-tenured position for a one-year period with research obligation. To fulfil the research requirements of the position, the applicant chosen is expected to be physically present, and actively participate in the teaching and research activities of the Department.
