We are looking for skilled creatives, educators and designers to join us at the Institute of Creativity and Innovation (ICI), a dual-degree institute founded by Xiamen University (XMU) and the University for the Creative Arts (UCA) in 2020.

You will be part of a unique department at the ICI specialising in core skills shared by all disciplines. As such, the modules you teach allow the students to develop interdisciplinary skills that enhance their knowledge base that can apply to a range of personal, creative and theoretical abilities. We embrace and strongly encourage innovative and collaborative teaching styles across all our modules and encourage teachers to adapt and modify content to suit their styles and specialisms. This is a unique opportunity to be part of an institution at its inception and to contribute to its future direction and success.

If you would welcome an informal chat about the role before applying, or any aspect of living and working in China, please contact Cindy Choquet by email (cindy.choquet@uca.ac.uk) providing your contact details.


Please apply with your updated CV and a covering letter stating your suitability for the role. You can also upload your portfolio, which would be desirable.

Priority will be given to applicants with experience of working in the UK, or other countries where courses are taught in English.

Candidates must be able to meet the Chinese visa requirements which are available here . UCA will assist with obtaining a visa.

Interviews will be ongoing; this role will remain open until filled.

At UCA, creativity and innovation are at the heart of what we do. Our legacy of educating eager and passionate artists, makers and thinkers runs back almost 160 years, and today we're helping shape a global future that supports and nourishes talent worldwide.
