Do you have amazing communication and graphic design skills? We want you to JOIN US!

We are excited to announce that University of the Arts is advertising a design communications research assistant, to undertake collaborative research in the field of design thinking and facilitation. The researcher will join the team for the EU-funded Horizon 2020 innovation project  ‘Trash-2-Cash: Utilising zero-value waste textiles and fibres with design-driven technologies to create high quality products’. In the ‘Trash-2-Cash’ project, growing problems with waste from the paper industry and textile fibre waste, originating from a continuously increasing textile consumption, will be solved through design-driven innovation. This will be performed by using the waste to regenerate fibres that will be included into fashion, interior and other high-value products.    

We are seeking an outstanding and enthusiastic research assistant who has experience in communicating design research to a variety of audiences. The role involves assisting the UAL team in the design and delivery of workshops and events that will endeavour to explore the design approaches, materials and methods required to create cyclable products within a variety of industry contexts. As well as gathering and transcribing data from Trash-2-Cash activities, you will produce graphics that communicate the ideas of the consortium.
