Our commitment to equality, diversity and inclusion is embedded in everything that we do. We celebrate the diversity of our backgrounds, cultures and actions, promoting art and design as a catalyst of social change.

To assist us in driving our strategic and creative vision forward, the university is now seeking to appoint full and part-time senior lecturers and lecturers in architecture.
Our dynamic studio-based architecture courses address in different ways the role of the contemporary architect in relation to physical and social contexts and environments, as well as to the specificity of the architectural discipline in relation to other forms of spatial and creative practice. This post will contribute to the future direction and curriculum of BA (hons) architecture and MArch architecture, and will have a role in developing, leading and delivering innovative teaching.
The role involves working closely with the director of architecture and interior design and the architecture course leader to lead and strengthen the provision of the architecture curriculum in the areas of environmental and technical studies, offering a current and global outlook of material cultures and techniques in architecture and the built environment, and establishing collaborative links with other disciplines, with the profession and industry.
We are seeking to appoint a versatile and professional individual, bringing practice and academic experience to the role. The successful candidate will have expertise in the environment and technical aspects of architecture and a contemporary understanding of materials and techniques. The successful candidate will be educated to ARB/RIBA Part 3 or international equivalent. We would particularly welcome applications from candidates with recognised standing in the field of architectural practice and/or education, as evidenced by a distinguished record and portfolio of work.
You will be an advocate for responsible and inclusive practices with an ability to foster a climate of success through critical debate and co-creation of learning. You will be a champion for promoting diversity and equality in architecture, its practices and environments. You will be an inspiring and innovative professional and a supportive and inclusive teacher with an engaging pedagogical approach in both digital and on-campus teaching sessions. You will be able to demonstrate currency in your professional experience and/or research practice. You will be a strong team player able to demonstrate excellent skills in leadership and in team-working, organisation and management.
The appointment will be made at either lecturer or senior lecturer level dependent on the successful candidate’s experience.
We welcome applications from those currently working in education as well as industry-based professionals whom we can support in the development of their academic career.
Closing date: 5.00pm on Tuesday 9 August
