Date posted: 18/03/2015
Application closing date: 19/04/2015
Salary: Grade 8 (£40,847 – £47,328)
Job category/type: Academic/Research
The Leeds School of Architecture of Leeds Beckett University operates within the School of Art Architecture and Design, and offers an ideal environment for the development of critical and collaborative practices in architecture. Within this creative context the School delivers RIBA validated Part 1, Part 2 and Part 3 courses, as well as an undergraduate BA Architectural Studies course, a postgraduate MA Architecture course, and a PhD in Architecture programme.
We are now seeking to appoint an enthusiastic and versatile individual as a Senior Lecturer in Architecture (0.6 FTE), able to make a key contribution to teaching, and coordination and research across all courses in the area of architecture, and bringing professional and academic experience to the role. You will hold a doctoral qualification in architecture or a cognate subject, and will have a good record of achievement in teaching and practice, scholarship and research. You will also be able to provide course and/or module leadership, contributing to the delivery and development of your area of specialism within the School.
We particularly welcome applications from candidates with recognized standing in the field of architectural technologies, materials, structures and techniques, as evidenced by achievement in practice, teaching and research achievement including publications.
Our dynamic studio-based courses address in different ways the critical and creative role of the contemporary architect in relation to physical and social contexts, as well as to the specificity of the architectural discipline in relation to other forms of practice – from the revitalization and the sustainability of the urban environment, to live projects and community participation, to the application of forms of digital fabrication and new technologies, to the exploration of new media to reinvent the languages of architecture in multidisciplinary practices.
Studio work is supported by architectural context studies in the areas of history, criticism, contemporary criticism and social agency; building and digital technologies studies which benefit from the consultancy from advanced practice; professional practice studies that operate in connection with local practices and in osmosis with the school’s collaborative Project Office.
