Lecturer in Architecture

University of the West of England, Bristol - Architecture & Built Environment

The Department wishes to appoint a Lecturer in Architecture to help develop and contribute to teaching, research and knowledge exchange within the Department. The principal requirement of the role will be to ensure the development of teaching, research and/or knowledge exchange activities within the Department and specifically within the domain of our Architecture programmes at UG and PG level.

We seek the appointment of research active academics that will complement &/or expand our knowledge and expertise within the Department and develop a contribution to the Research Excellence Framework.

Experience of student project & dissertation supervision would also be advantageous.

In addition to delivering effective teaching and assessment at undergraduate and postgraduate level, the post holder at G grade will be expected to take on module leadership including managing their teaching team(s).

The Department has a growing number of partners delivering their modules and programmes in the UK and overseas and the successful applicants may therefore also need to be able to support academic relationships with external partners delivering their module(s) in the UK and overseas. The successful applicant will be able to engage with students from diverse backgrounds, including overseas students, and in diverse study modes e.g. face to face, e-learning, full time, part time and short block courses.

The precise blend of teaching/research/academic management is not being specified but it is important to note that at this level of appointment the role holder is expected to make a significant contribution to teaching and research / knowledge exchange / business to business activities of the Department and Faculty. An element of the Department’s strategy for the future is the embracing and embedding of technology-enhanced provision across its range of activities and we would be particularly interested to hear from individuals with experience in this area.
