Lecturer in Architectural Technology
The School, College of Arts and the University share an agenda of academic excellence, which includes a world-class reputation and ranking. In line with that agenda, the School of Architecture and the Built Environment is currently undergoing an ambitious plan of development and growth.
The School is one of six in the College of Arts and plays a lively role in the intellectual and cultural landscapes of the region and beyond. The Architecture provision in the School offers a range of undergraduate and postgraduate programmes including the BArch (ARB/RIBA Part 1), MArch (ARB/RIBA Part 2) and PGDip (ARB/RIBA Part 3) degrees. The School has recently rolled out and started a new BSc (Hons) and MSc in Construction Science and Management and a new BSc (Hons) in Architectural Science and Technology will be starting in September 2019. These programmes will be followed by new and innovative programmes in Facilities and Environment Management, and City Planning and Urban Design, and more in the future. In addition to these programmes, we offer MPhil/PhD degrees in Architecture and in Construction Science and Management.
Following the successful validation of new programmes in Construction Science and Management and Architectural Science and Technology, the School is now recruiting a Lecturer in Architectural Technology to support the development of high quality teaching, research and practice in this field. This position offers the opportunity to play a significant role in the development of our new programmes and to support the development of a high-quality research and professional practice environment in the field. We are particularly interested in candidates who can demonstrate knowledge and expertise in any number of the following areas: Architectural Design and Technology Studio, Construction Science and Technology, Health & Safety, Construction Law, and Building Regulations. The School therefore wishes to appoint an experienced, future-oriented thinker in the field of Architectural Technology who has the ability to work with others in the University in the delivery of new, innovative, cutting edge programmes. The new programmes will meet the accreditation requirements of the relevant professional bodies (CIAT), but will also focus on four broad global challenges that we all face: resilience in the face of climate change; digital engineering and technology; construction innovation and technology; and urban growth and population dynamics.
A Lecturer will be expected to have an appropriate balance of research, professional practice and teaching within their portfolio and to evidence potential to progress to higher levels of academic grade appointment.
