This is a unique opportunity, sponsored by Neal’s Yard Remedies, to develop and locate your post-doctoral research practice within the research aims and remit of Centre for Sustainable Fashion (CSF), a University of the Arts Research Centre based at London College of Fashion (LCF). Within the context of fashion, you will investigate design activism as part of the field of study of design for sustainability and contribute to related CSF projects. You will use practice-based research to define and extend understanding of design activism in fashion and develop research projects, methods and outcomes that will contribute to the profile of CSF and LCF both nationally and internationally. The role will also involve contributing to the development of curricula and student teaching and learning in these fields. The post will support outcomes and impacts of the College and contribute to its events as required.
