The tvs NEXT Fellows is a new initiative at the SoA intended for young faculty who are at the beginning of their careers and interested in interdisciplinary teaching and research that merges design, technology and culture. Fellows teach design studios and workshops at both the undergraduate and graduate level and participate actively in the life of the school. The workshops can be used to assist the Fellows in their own directed design research that will result in a public exhibition and lecture at the school.
tvs NEXT Fellows are given an unparalleled opportunity to advance their individual interests through teaching and design research utilizing the full resources of the College of Design including our Digital Fabrication & Robotics Laboratory that houses a suite of industrial-scale CNC equipment. Fellows conduct interdisciplinary work with junior faculty from other schools within the College of Design and across campus including computing, engineering and science and are given support in making these connections. Fellows also have the opportunity to work with SoA research faculty and PhD students on projects of common interest.
Announcements for new Fellow applicants are made each fall and applications are reviewed beginning on November 1 of each year.
