Published Nov 08, 2018

Mälardalen University is now looking for three Associate Lecturers in Innovation and Product Realisation/Innovation and Design to join the School of Innovation, Design and Engineering.

Employment: Fixed-term employment, 4 years
Scope: Full time
Closing date for application: November 30th, 2018
Campus location: Eskilstuna, Sweden
School: School of Innovation, Design and Engineering

The position as Associate Senior lecturer is within the research specialization Innovation and Product Realisation (IPR), one of six prioritized research specialisations at Mälardalen University. IPR is an interdisciplinary research milieu that consists of researchers, teachers and PhD students with complementary scientific and pedagogic competences in engineering sciences, social sciences, humanities and arts. The vision of IPR is to contribute to sustainable future development and industrial renewal through holistic efforts that take into account people, systems and global challenges in research and education.

The IPR milieu is formally divided into four research groups in which members frequently collaborate between the research groups:

The Information Design group applies a human-centered design perspective in cross-disciplinary research projects formulated to improve understanding of how information can be designed, communicated and understood through artefacts in the environment in terms of space, text and visualizations.

The Product and Production Development group creates knowledge about the renewal and development of products and production systems. Primary objectives are to elucidate processes, methods, tools and organizational arrangements that promote innovation and foster the sustainable development of production systems and products, thereby creating conditions that enhance manufacturing companies' competitiveness.

The Value-driven Innovation and Foresight group focuses on how innovation is expressed from a value-creating service perspective, using broad inclusion and democratization through Responsibility Research & Innovation Tools. The group also considers requirements to understand future needs, linking foresight and world analysis with the development of future business models.

The Workplace Innovation and Quality Management group uses and develops ana­lytical tools and methods for handling and enabling processes of change in which employees participate, and explores ways to develop innovative skills through better understanding of social systems’ dynamics.
