Updates on engineering and architecture jobs available around the world
The built environment is witnessing a rapid transformation in how it is conceived, designed, analysed and constructed. Digital technologies are disrupting the traditional distinctions between parametric design and form-finding, computational analysis and digital fabrication. There is high interest from architects and designers to integrate computational methods in their design process.
The Welsh School of Architecture is currently conducting research into the areas of digital robotic fabrication of sustainable material, building performance simulation in the early phases of design, the role of artificial intelligence in architecture, and novel methods of representing and analysing building geometry and topology.
The Welsh School of Architecture wishes to appoint a full-time Lecturer who has experience in computational methods in architecture to further our teaching and research agenda. Given the school’s position in the College of Physical Sciences and Engineering, the post holder will have an opportunity to pursue an inter-disciplinary collaborative approach to design thinking through the integration of computational methods from the disciplines of architecture, computer science, and engineering.
The post holder will be expected to deliver high-quality and research-led teaching at undergraduate and postgraduate level and to contribute to the research record of the School by carrying out high quality research leading to the publishing of work. The successful candidate will pursue excellence in research, teaching and enterprise and inspire others to do the same.
The position is full-time (35 hours per week) and is open ended.
For informal enquiries about the post please contact Professor Wassim Jabi JabiW@Cardiff.ac.uk or Lucy Forrester (PA to Head of School) email@example.com
The appointment will be made, dependent on relevant qualifications and experience, within the Grade 7 scale.
Please be aware that Cardiff University reserves the right to close this vacancy early should sufficient applications be received.
