Senior Lecturer in Architecture

Leeds Beckett University - School of Art, Architecture and Design

Leeds Beckett University - Faculty of Arts, Environment and Technology

Leeds School of Architecture

The Leeds School of Architecture, established in 1902, offers an ideal environment for the development of critical and collaborative practices in architecture. Within this creative context the School delivers RIBA validated Part 1, Part 2 and Part 3 courses, as well as an undergraduate BA Architectural Studies course, a postgraduate MA Architecture course, and a PhD in Architecture programme.

We are now seeking to appoint an enthusiastic and versatile individual as a Senior Lecturer in Architecture, able to make a key contribution to teaching, coordination and research across all courses in the area of architecture, and bringing professional and academic experience to the role.

The successful candidate will hold a first degree and masters degree in an area relevant to the School of Architecture. Possession of a RIBA/ARB accredited qualification at Part 3 level (or international equivalent) is desirable. You will have a good record of achievement in teaching and practice, scholarship and research. You will be able to provide course and/or module leadership, contributing to the delivery and development of your area of specialism within the School.

We particularly welcome applications from candidates with recognized standing in the field of architectural technologies, materials, structures and techniques, as evidenced by a distinguished record of achievement in practice, teaching and research.

Our dynamic, studio-based courses address in different ways the critical and creative role of the contemporary architect in relation to physical and social contexts, as well as to the specificity of the architectural discipline in relation to other forms of practice, such as:

  • the revitalisation and the sustainability of the urban environment;
  • live projects and community participation;
  • the application of forms of digital fabrication and new technologies;
  • the exploration of new media to reinvent the languages of architecture in multidisciplinary practices. 

Studio work is supported by architectural context studies in the areas of history, theory, criticism and social agency; building and digital technologies studies, with the support of consultancy by advanced practice; professional studies that operate in connection with local practices and in partnership with the school’s collaborative RIBA accredited Project Office.

Closing date: 5 December 2016 (midnight)
