Faculty of Architecture, Building and Planning

Salary: Level B $ 98,775 – 117,290 p.a. or Level C $120,993 – $139,510 p.a., plus 17% superannuation. Level of appointment is subject to qualifications and experience.

The Faculty of Architecture Building and Planning at the University of Melbourne seeks to make two appointments in the field of architectural design. These appointments may be made at Level B (Lecturer) or Level C (Senior Lecturer).

The successful candidates will demonstrate both accomplishment and continued promise in the field of architectural design, with a record of recognized creative, scholarly or professional work. They will have a proven capability to make a significant contribution to teaching, research and engagement in architectural design. They will expand spatial knowledge and conceptualization through design, and explore and evaluate designed futures in aesthetic, environmental and social terms.

Key to these roles will be the demonstrated ability to influence and stimulate the student experience through a range of learning and teaching initiatives, including digital design. The successful candidates will work with Faculty colleagues to refine and deliver academic programs, enhancing the interdisciplinary design culture of the Faculty.

They will teach at both graduate and undergraduate levels, including into the Bachelor of Design and will participate in the supervision of research higher degree students. Appointees will each have an established research specialisation in architecture, and demonstrate a high level of research performance and promise relative to the level of appointment. They will have potential to cultivate research links with other groups and disciplines on campus, and with industry and the profession.

While we are primarily interested in expanding our capacities in architectural design, we encourage applicants who also bring complementary disciplinary interests in the following areas:

  • Detail design, fabrication and construction,
  • Emerging digital design technologies, including digital fabrication, sensate environments and performative design, and their professional implications,
  • Urban Design.

In your submission please specify the level of appointment you are applying for and address specific selection criteria as outlined in the Position Description.
