PhD Corporate Partnership Virtual Open House
Carlos Teixeira, Director, PhD Program at the Institute of Design hosts an online conversation for those interested in co-developing design research relevant to industries.
We will discuss how a partner organization can sponsor one or more design professionals or researchers for three years to lead a collaborative research project between ID faculty and industry experts on a topic of common relevance. Residency at the Institute of Design is not required for this particular initiative. The design professional will be able to continue in his/her job with the expectation of working remotely with ID faculty, and spending a one-week immersion in Chicago every six months.
Candidates should have a master’s degree in design (or equivalent) and/or significant experience as a professional designer. They should also have the buy-in and support of their corporate leaders, and be involved in design-led research in industry projects.
For candidates or corporations interested in considering this collaboration, please contact Carlos Teixeira at email@example.com.
