The research projects Creative Tools, financed by the Aarhus University Research Foundation, and CoCreate, financed by the Velux Foundations, at the Department of Information Studies and Digital Design, School of Communication and Culture, Faculty of Arts, Aarhus University, invite applications for a two-year postdoctoral fellowship. The appointment begins on 1 August 2017, or as soon as possible thereafter. Research context Digital tools play an increasingly central role in human creativity, but we know little about how they affect the creative process. As a result, many tools are poorly suited to support creative practices, especially when it comes to collaboration. For instance, very few digital tools employed in the creative industries directly support collaborative creative sessions, and most of the software employed only allows one person using one computer to work on one file at a time; sharing it with others implies a string of tasks that break the creative flow and impede quality and productivity. The Creative Tools and CoCreate projects seek to develop a better understanding of digital tools in collaborative creativity, which can help us build better digital tools for supporting creativity in the future. In the projects, we will therefore both study the benefits and shortcomings of digital tools used in creative work today, and combine this knowledge with insights from humanistic IT research to develop and deploy prototypes of novel digital tools that present meaningful alternative ways of integrating digital tools in the creative process. The successful applicant will collaborate closely with the project manager, Associate Professor Peter Dalsgaard, and the CoCreate and Creative Tools project teams, which include 6-8 senior and junior researchers in the field of digital creativity. The Creative Tools and CoCreate projects are part of a suite of five research projects exploring the use of digital tools in creativity and knowledge work. The applicant can thus expect to work in a strong and focused research group of approximately 15 colleagues including junior and senior researchers, with ambitions to be at the international forefront in the field of digital creativity research. The successful applicant will also be affiliated with the highly ranked HCI research group at Aarhus University (http://hci.au.dk) and the Centre for Advanced Visualisation and Interaction (http://cavi.au.dk). Research profile The postdoc project will focus on the design and implementation of techniques for improving ways of working with digital tools and materials for creative professionals, and deploying and studying these in real-life situations. The methodology of the project will be participatory design, experimental systems development, and user interface systems research. The overarching objective will be to use insights into state of the art practices and technologies for collaborative creative work, and to develop, deploy, and assess prototypes of novel tools to improve collaborative creative work. Qualifications Applicants must have a PhD degree or equivalent in human-computer interaction, interaction design, computer-supported cooperative work (CSCW), or a similar field, as well as strong technical, theoretical and experimental proficiency. Applicants must document previous experience of the design and implementation of interactive systems, particularly collaborative systems and/or creativity support systems. Applicants are expected to have shown excellence in research through publications in top HCI venues. The successful applicant will be expected to participate in research-based project activities, lectures, seminars and workshops, as well as in supervising students. As part of their application, applicants should provide a research statement (i.e. what research do you imagine you will do) and explain how their research relates and contributes to the thematic research frame of the Creative Tools project. Please keep these statements to a maximum of three pages. The application must be submitted in English. School of Communication and Culture The school belongs to the Faculty of Arts. You will find relevant information about the school and its many activities here on our website. The School of Communication and Culture offers a broad range of research and degree programmes across a variety of fields: literature(s), information and media studies, linguistics, Scandinavian studies, Western European languages and cultures, and the arts and aesthetics.
