As a university of applied sciences, our aim is to connect various perspectives to develop integrated and innovative solutions that are both creative and connective. The Research Centre Art & Society (RCAS) conducts research and develops new artistic practices in collaboration with various sectors in society. It conducts practice-based research into how artists, designers, musicians, and art educators can contribute to a more humane and sustainable world. This is achieved by collaborating closely with other sectors from within the arts.
As senior researcher, you will develop and coordinate practice-based research projects at the intersection of art and research and develop biobased materials. You will conduct your own research in this field where natural materials and artistic practices intersect. You will be based in the research group Art & Sustainability, where you will collaborate with researchers working in this specific field and with other research groups in the Research Centre and the university as a whole.
Where you'll work
The senior researcher in biobased materials and art is based at the Professorship Art & Sustainability but also represents all the professorships at the Research Centre Art & Society. In the coming years, the Professorship Art & Sustainability aims to focus more on the theme of biobased materials in relation to the arts, expanding its collaboration with the Research Centre for Biobased Economy. The Professorship's ambition is to give professional fields such as ecoart and bioart a more prominent place, drawing inspiration from the environmental humanities, specifically ecoaesthetics. Key terms are circular materials and processes, biomimicry, ecological design, and biodesign.
The research group views materials not merely as static objects or pieces of nature but as substances in the process of becoming as is emphasized by Tim Ingold. In this approach to (biobased) materials, sustainability is understood in the context of "soil, soul, and society,".
In addition you have:
The opportunity to further develop your research and contribute to sustainability challenges in art and biobased materials. We offer an ambitious multidisciplinary research environment where you will collaborate with professors, researchers, teachers, and students from various disciplines. You will work in an environment with a large amount of flexibility and opportunity for your own input.
