The post requires you to contribute to the academic work of the School of Art & Design. In particular you will be expected to take an active contribution to the architecture programmes, and you will also have experience in architectural practice. You will also be expected to contribute to the academic life of the School, Faculty and University.

The Architecture programmes (BA Hons; MArch) offer study that is balanced to address the creative and technical demands of the profession. Taught principally through a studio environment that is seamlessly underpinned and informed by lectures and workshops.The over-arching ambition of the programme is to create graduates with artistic flair, and who are technically skilled and grounded in the demands of the professional role of the architect.

The learning and teaching environment is progressively informed by research in pedagogy in the creative field. While teaching the curriculum, the programme also develops less tangible skills in students, such as communication, presentation and self-motivation; a key ambition is to create independent thinkers, adept at resolving problems with creativity and originality.

A broad educational experience is offered within which students can develop diverse rigorous and creative approaches to design issues that explore and test appropriate resolutions in relation to contemporary and anticipated contextual issues.

The courses are fully accredited by the RIBA (Royal Institute of Architects) and the ARB (Architects Registration Board). Liverpool School of Art and Design, where Architecture is taught, has many links with artistic and cultural institutions both nationally and locally, including RIBA and FACT (the Foundation of Arts and Creative Technologies), and collaborates regularly on both live projects and exhibitions. In the 2017 RIBA revalidation, the MArch programme was commended by the visiting assessors for: 'the Architecture programme's focus on urban design projects across a range of scales, evident in the work of the MArch students'.
