Generous funding from Hyundai supports ongoing studio and workshop activities aimed at innovating solutions to emerging design challenges, in ways that are deeply informed by the natural world.

We are currently seeking outstanding applicants for a 2 year fellowship position to work with Hyundai and RISD staff, faculty and students on biodesign topics, including biomimicry, biomaterials and biosystems applications. Successful applicants should have a background in the biological and/or environmental sciences, a working knowledge of applied biomimicry and regenerative design, and teaching experience. The fellow will collaborate with Nature Lab staff on expanding, maintaining and supplementing biodesign pedagogy, research and practices in the Lab, as well as individual and small group mentoring.

This work provides the rare opportunity to work in a transdisciplinary space with a major international corporation, as well as the possibility of influencing the future of mobility design on the planet.
