Senior Lecturer in Architectural History and Theory

Leeds Beckett University - School of Art, Architecture and Design

The School of Art, Architecture and Design 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 a postgraduate MA Architecture course, and a PhD in Architecture programme.

We are investing in our academic provision and are seeking to appoint a Senior Lecturer to join our team of experienced academic staff. We are looking for an inspiring and enthusiastic academic to make a key contribution to the delivery and development of our strong and dynamic Architecture Programme through teaching, research, and enterprise.

We are interested in applicants who have experience in delivery of Architectural History and Theory, as well as Studio modules. Applications are welcomed also from successful practitioners with teaching experience. You will have successfully completed an MArch (RIBA/ARB Part 02 or equivalent) and be able to demonstrate a good record of achievement in teaching and learning practice.  Successful candidates will provide module leadership, contributing to the delivery and development of our Architecture programmes.

You will contribute to the further development of the identity and agenda of architectural education in the School's multidisciplinary context of Art, Architecture, and Design.

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 - from the revitalisation and the sustainability of the urban environment, to live projects and community participation, to the application of forms of digital fabrication and new technologies, to 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, criticism, contemporary criticism and social agency; building and digital Technologies Studies which benefit from the consultancy from advanced practice; Professional Studies that operate in connection with local practices and in osmosis with the school's collaborative Project Office.

Closing Date: 2 April 2018 (Midnight). Please note that you will not be able to edit or submit a part-completed application form after the closing date.

Working here means you'll also have access to a wide range of benefits including our generous pension schemes, excellent holiday entitlements, flexible working, reduced study fees, subsidised fitness facilities, and a lot more.

We welcome applications from all individuals and particularly from black and minority ethnic candidates as members of these groups are currently under-represented at this level of post. All appointments will be based on merit.
