Researcher & Writer, Superflux

WE’RE HIRING AN ENTHUSIASTIC RESEARCHER & WRITER TO JOIN OUR TEAM!

Superflux is an award-winning design and experiential futures company. We create visceral experiences that bring future possibilities into the present

TRANSLATING RESEARCH

All our work starts with investigations, explorations and questions. These foundational explorations are intrinsic in shaping final outcomes and take on two flavours. Sometimes, they evolve organically. Sometimes, they are designed into research phases: ethnographic, anthropological, material and foresight. Both require fastidious curiosity and ease in articulating insights into words people want to read.

THE TASK AT HAND

Whilst we often collaborate with scientists, as creatives – artists and designers – we approach research with a creative lens. Two critical aspects of this role are: understanding and traversing different knowledge-gathering tools and methods and appreciating the challenges of communicating artistic research to scientific and evidence-based communities.

We’re in the exploratory stages of an exciting research project investigating the tensions between the climate crisis, futures, communities and policy change. We are looking for someone to help us navigate these boundaries and articulate the value of creative/artistic/design-led research for non-creative audiences. You will engage in conversations, interviews, desk, and experimental research and translate your findings into informative written pieces.

OUR IDEAL CANDIDATE WILL:

Hold an MA or PhD in social sciences, humanities foresight or a similar related field that demonstrates knowledge of research practices.

Have strong core research skills – confidence to independently conduct desk research, interviews, literature analysis, observations, and foresight research

Be confident in researching complex topics using a range of methodologies and processes, and be able to clearly translate these ideas into concise written pieces with clarity and persuasion.

Be relentlessly  curious and open-minded to cross-disciplinary works and explorations and thrives in such settings.

Demonstrate excellent organisational skills for planning and carrying out simultaneous streams of research
