About the opportunity

The School of Architecture, Design and Planning has been offering architectural education for more than a century and is one of the top 25 built environment Schools globally. We have a broad range of research interests that span architectural theory, architectural theory, computation as well as a strong program in architectural science. In 2020 our strategic plan reaffirmed our commitment to social justice, student centred programs, multi-disciplinarity, staff professional development, and engagement with industry and the community.

The School of Architecture, Design and Planning at the University of Sydney is strengthening its capacity to provide architectural education and research that supports collective work toward a post-carbon future. We are seeking candidates who undertake research and teaching exploring the design, construction, and operation of buildings and built environments in the context of changing climate and emerging technologies.

Successful candidates will contribute to the school's ongoing development of a design culture for a changing climate. We are particularly interested in an ability to bridge construction and building technologies fields within a project-based architectural design studio setting that emphasizes culturally sensitive approaches. Candidates must have a robust research agenda combining their area of expertise with architectural design, and a demonstrated capacity for leadership across educational, professional and institutional settings. Successful candidates will collaborate with colleagues in the school's state-of-the-art architectural science, computation, and fabrication labs, and will have opportunities to enhance partnerships with design, urbanism, engineering, computer science, environmental studies and allied fields.
