The AA is made up of countless projects, personalities and audiences. The AA is unique in that we are more than just a school but a worldwide association, made up of members and visitors and an unrivalled public programme of lectures, exhibitions, publications and special events, all of which set the backdrop for full-time foundation, undergraduate - and graduate-level study at our campuses in London and Dorset. In addition, each year short courses and global schools in the AA Visiting School bring together students and teachers in more than 50 locations across five continents. Whether at Bedford Square or abroad the AA’s teachers and staff provide students with expertise, encouragement and support across all levels of education. Given the fact that 85 per cent of our students (and a similar percentage of tutors) come to London from abroad every autumn, we really are a school unlike any other.

Role Overview:

The Digital Prototyping Lab (DPL) is seeking an enthusiastic and dedicated individual to join the team and become an integral part of the AA’s digital fabrication facility.

With a major upgrade just completed, the DPL now has a custom-built robotics cell, which houses two KUKA robotic arms for use in architectural education. The role of the Robotic Fabrication Technician will be to provide crucial expertise in robotics by teaching, supporting and developing student projects. This role also means working closely with DPL staff to maintain the smooth running of the lab, including the supervision and teaching of students using laser cutting, CNC milling and various 3D printing technologies.

The Robotic Fabrication Technician will report to the Head of Digital Prototyping and collaborate with DPL staff and student assistants

What we offer:

A range of staff benefits including generous annual leave and a defined-contribution pension scheme.
