About us.

The Manchester School of Architecture is ranked 7th in the QS world university rankings and enjoys the unique context of being a collaboration between Manchester Metropolitan University and the University of Manchester. It is one of the largest Schools of Architecture in the country with over 1200 students (typically representing some 85 countries) and over 150 staff from diverse backgrounds and is proud to retain both its quality and sense of community.

The School is characterised by excellence, ambition, boldness, inquisitiveness, innovation, and social responsibility. These facets generate a unique blend and balance between research led teaching, impressive and relevant research outputs (84% of research activity is world leading or internationally excellent), and extensive professional industry links, all of which encourage our students to cultivate their own unique approach to architecture and their careers thereafter. Imagination, we take it seriously! The School was responsible for 3 of the 9 impact case studies returned with Art & Design in the last REF, namely; “A neighbourhood model for age-friendly policy and practice: engaged design and research for urban ageing”, “Heritage action: discovering, preserving and celebrating post-war modern architecture”, and “Complex sustainable futures: disruptive technologies in urban transformation”.

The role.

Joining the Manchester School of Architecture as a Professor of Architecture you will have an internationally respected research profile with a track record of attracting research funding. You will also have experience in mentoring and supporting early career researchers, and success in securing funding for PGR and post-doctoral opportunities as we look to grow our PhD provision. You'll also have a strong network and connections beyond Higher Education and work with editorial boards would be an advantage. You'll also be expected to contribute to our research-led studio teaching via our renowned vertical Atelier studio system, including the ability to lead such an Atelier where you will forge tangible links between your research areas of interest and your teaching for the benefit of our students.

Our current portfolio includes the ARB and RIBA accredited BA and M.Arch programmes, a new Part 3 programme, a Landscape Institute accredited Master of Landscape Architecture, an MA Architecture and Urbanism, and MA Architecture and Adaptive Reuse. We have very ambitious plans to grow this portfolio in the near future with a range of exciting and dynamic programmes which will build on our areas of expertise and values.

As a senior member of staff you will also be part of the leadership cadre of the School which includes line management responsibility. You will have exceptional inter-personal and communication qualities, excellent organisational and administrative skills, and a collaborative approach to working. We will also look to you to ensure an excellent student experience through the use of relevant and inspiring learning and teaching.
