We are committed to identifying and solving grand societal challenges and building an innovative future. Aalto University has six schools with nearly 11 000 students and nearly 400 professors.

Some areas of research and artistic activities include ecological issues, gender, equality, mobility, biological art, and cultural differences. In addition, the intersection of art, science, business, and technology is a developing area responding to the possibilities of transdisciplinary research done at Aalto University. The position strengthens the research and artistic culture in the department.
The professorship is located at the intersections of visual culture and contemporary art, and the person chosen for this position will be responsible for developing artistic thinking and practices, and their application to new areas, contexts, and non-art disciplines.

The professor is expected to increase the number of channels and venues for communication, storytelling and expression of the Department's research and artistic activities on an international level, including reaching a wide audience, generating artistic and research outputs that have societal impact, and directly affecting the shape and scope of fields of visual culture and contemporary art practices.
