HKU University of the Arts Utrecht, The Netherlands

Vacancy: Professor in Artistic Extended Realities

HKU University of the Arts Utrecht aims to gain and share new insights into creative applications of technology and encourage a professional practice for artists and creative professionals, making a unique contribution to societal challenges.

HKU is currently looking for a Professor of Applied Sciences in Artistic Extended Realities (0.8FTE).

Deadline for applications: January 16, 2022

New knowledge and insights into AR/VR/MR and artificial intelligence are needed to be able to produce a new generation of artists and designers. As a higher arts education institute, we are therefore conducting research into and for XR, including design strategies for meaningful experiences, developing and using narrative methods and creating interactions in hybrid collaborations. This is being done with partners in the cultural and creative professional fields but also in other contexts, such as healthcare and sustainability.

As the leading researcher, you are responsible for the quality of the research in the professorship and in the broader Creative Processes and Technology research area. In addition to designing, acquiring and conducting your (own) practice-based research with partners in the professional field and society, our professors have an important task in supervising other researchers (post-docs, PhD students and lecturer-researchers) and reinforcing the connection between education and research. Professors are responsible, in close collaboration with the schools, for both conducting research and linking the results to relevance for HKU students.
