About the position

These are outstanding opportunities for well-qualified practicing architects, with a passion for teaching, to join the Abedian School of Architecture at an exciting time of growth and development. The School aims to be recognised both nationally and internationally as a Centre of Excellence for Architectural teaching, learning and research.

As members of academic staff within the Abedian School of Architecture, these positions will be responsible for contributing to teaching, research and service in the School and University at the undergraduate and postgraduate level, with particular emphasis on the design and making of architecture. An ability to teach architectural fabrication and/or professional practice, would be a potential advantage.

These roles require a creative and professional understanding of architectural design, that combines an aesthetic, ethical, environmental and tectonic understanding of architecture, and its social and cultural role in society, with a first-hand professional understanding of practical, technical, economic and political realisation of architecture, implementing the latest international developments within architectural design and technological innovation. These positions also require a familiarity with a range of professional architectural software and willingness to adopt and use the Bond University iLearn system.

The appointments are initially for a fixed term of 3 years, which may be renewable.

About the person:

The successful applicants will ideally be experienced practitioners, academics and teachers, who can demonstrate a record of experience making architecture in practice, research and teaching at all levels of education, particularly within studio-based teaching. They will possess an accredited professional or terminal degree in Architecture and preferably have teaching experience in an accredited architecture program. They will ideally be in the process of realising or considering to begin working on an architecturally relevant PhD.

Since education at the Abedian School of Architecture is practice based within a dynamic studio environment, and the quality of the student’s educational experience is paramount; the successful applicants will have a clear passion for design and for student learning, and shall use the opportunity of this position to further develop a vibrant culture of design, discourse and exploration through pedagogical and research focused initiatives.

It is also expected that the incumbents will be articulate, enthusiastic and collaborative collegial members of the teaching team, contributing to the established studio culture and broader development, as well as wider recognition of the Abedian School of Architecture.

Salary details:

Bond University offers a vibrant campus with state-of-the-art facilities in a picturesque location, as well as a range of tangible benefits including (but not limited to): competitive remuneration, bus services to the door, available car parking, use of library, Career Development Services, corporate discount programs and a bulk-billing medical centre on-site.
