Updates on engineering and architecture jobs available around the world

Arts University Bournemouth is renowned globally as a professional arts university, dedicated to turning creativity into careers. Our culture of making, performing, and shaping cultures is at the heart of our learning, research and engagement. Our values speak of collaboration, connectedness and innovative practice, underpinned by a passion for our academic disciplines and extensive partnerships with industry, professions and communities.

We are committed to equality of opportunity for all staff and strive for our staff to be from diverse backgrounds.  We positively encourage applications from individuals within under-represented groups and welcome applications from individuals regardless of age, disability, sex, gender reassignment, sexual orientation, pregnancy and maternity, race, religion or belief and marriage and civil partnerships. 

We are pleased to offer an opportunity to lead our Masters of Architecture (RIBA/ARB Part 2) course, part of the School of Design and Architecture at Arts University Bournemouth.

Higher education courses will need to navigate a period of significant challenge and change: increasingly competitive student recruitment; the quality, currency, relevancy and value for money of a university education; readiness for graduate employment; student health and wellbeing; embedding diversity, inclusivity and sustainability in everything we do and the accelerating global impact of digital technologies.

Alongside these, with the conclusion of ARB’s consultation on the new regulatory framework for educating future architects, and confirmation of the RIBA’s position, courses in architecture will need a clarity of vision and purpose to not only ensure that they meet and maintain their professional accreditation but also support and prepare their students for their future in the creative industries, their future practice, or a portfolio career across a diversity of graduate roles.

As a senior academic in the School, you will be expected to rise to, and meet, these, and other challenges through drawing on the combined knowledge, skills and experience of all stakeholders and networks, both within the AUB and externally, as well as, of course, your current students and alumni.

As a Course Leader, you will demonstrate the qualities of leadership to those around you as well as nurturing the same in those with whom you work most closely. Leading by example, you will represent not only your course, staff and students, but the values for which the University stands.

As an experienced senior lecturer and tutor, you will not only be expected to become conversant with, and apply, all appropriate University regulations, policies and practices, but also to take ownership of problems that occur and demonstrate patience, reflection and self-awareness in learning from events.

As a person working with a diverse range of staff and students, you will be empathetic and respectful of difference, clear in communication, flexible in approach and, above all, active in listening. You will be central in promoting a culture of transparency, respect and trust.

The successful candidate will work closely with the Course Leader for BA (Hons) Architecture (RIBA/ARB Part 1), to enable close integration and promote progression from Part 1 to Part 2, ultimately ensuring growth and the ongoing strength of the offer at AUB.

You should submit your application without help from AI Chatbots e.g. ChatGPT. Any applications whereby it is deemed that such content has been included, will be disqualified from the selection process.

Closing Date:            26 November 2023
