Job description

Applications are invited to take a leading role within the school's team in developing and delivering the exciting new Future Cities Masters programme. They will contribute significantly to the school's teaching and research portfolios and REF submission in the area of architectural design (encompassing urbanism). The candidate should be creatively-focused with design-based expertise in sustainability, environmental design and urbanism.

The successful candidate will be expected to assume leadership roles within the teaching, organisation and administration of the Future Cites Masters and contribute to other prorammes, themes and modules as required delivering lectures, leading seminars, conducting tutorials and devising and participating in other teaching activities. In their research and teaching leadership roles they will be expected to realise an international network of contacts and devise and engage in student recruitment strategies and opportunities globally.

One of the five disciplines within the School of Natural and Built Environment, Architecture at Queen's University (Russell Group) is one of the best places to study Architecture in the UK. In the 2018 Guardian League Table, it was ranked 7th Overall in the UK of 49 schools. In the 2019 Guardian Table of 55 schools of architecture, we were ranked 4th for Added Value and (joint) 6th for Career after six months. In 2019, we were ranked (joint) 2nd for Graduate Prospects and 8th Overall in the UK of 55 schools in the Complete University Guide. Supported by a diverse group of academic staff and external tutors engaged in international, award-winning research and practice, over 75 per cent of our students regularly graduate with a 1st Class or 2.1 degree.

All students, many of whom come from outside Northern Ireland, receive a high degree of personal tuition in a strong studio culture in which every student has dedicated personal studio space. Our established reputation generated over 50 years means that our graduates are often placed with leading employers from around the world. They are those who will be leaders in their fields, creatively rethinking the past, present and particularly the future of the built environment.
