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 despite its size.
The School is characterised by excellence, ambition, boldness, inquisitiveness, innovation, and social justice and 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!
PRAXXIS is a female led vertical teaching atelier in the BA3 Architecture, M.Arch years 1&2 and the Masters in Landscape Architecture here at the MSA.

We work to two core principals the personal and the political the often-heard feminist slogan, suggesting a connection between an individual experience and the wider social or political structures. We see our studio as both a safe and brave space for the projects to emerge. A space to talk. A space to share. A space for the voices of others. A space to engage with others. A space to mentor. A space to be feminist. A space to tell stories. A space to question. A space to discuss what is not discussed.

The PRAXXIS role will include teaching both studio and developing some vertical theory seminars and the remainder of the time will be allocated to academic administration relating to your teaching roles and to Research Knowledge Exchange / Education opportunities if appropriate.
