What are you looking for?

Burg Giebichenstein University of Art and Design Halle is looking to fill the following position in the Design department at the earliest possible date:

Professor for Interior Architecture/Elementary Composition of Spaces (pay grade W2)

As one of four professors in the bachelor and master’s courses for Interior Architecture, the incumbent will teach to generate interior architecture projects in the course “Complex Generating of Interiors” as part of the second stage of studies, as well as introduce students in the first stage of their studies to fundamental principles and artistic interpretation of the composition of spaces, one of the four mainstays of the subject-oriented foundation stage of the courses.

We are looking for an experienced interior architect with in-depth teaching expertise, preferably at an University of Art and Design, who has planned or realised exemplary projects in the field of interior architecture. Apart from a command of the classical interior architecture disciplines of concept, design and implementation planning, they should have a direct approach to structural architecture, thus illuminating its links to interior architecture from different angles and in a vigorous and diverse way, and assisting students in the development of their own artistic positions.

An affinity with topics related to an University of Art and Design, as demonstrated in the incumbent’s biography, is desirable. In addition to fulfilling the general appointment requirements according to § 35 HSG LSA, the successful candidate is expected to actively participate in the academic self-governance of the university, with a focus on the continued development of the university, which is currently, among other things, developing a post-gradual format in order to strongly emphasize the trans-disciplinary features of the artistic teaching in the Design department. Teaching is mainly delivered in German.
