Updates on engineering and architecture jobs available around the world
The Manchester School of Architecture is ranked 5th 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. It 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! 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”.
Joining the Manchester School of Architecture as a Lecturer on our Master of Landscape Architecture programme, you will contribute to unit leadership, design studio teaching, as well as other areas of the curriculum (history and theory and/or landscape technologies). The role will also include planning unit delivery, liaising with colleagues from other courses and disciplines. You may also be required to provide support and mentoring to individual students.
Applications from candidates with practice and teaching experience are welcomed. Chartered membership (or practitioners on the Pathway to Chartership) of the Landscape Institute (or international equivalent) is also desirable. We invite applications from candidates with a research interest or specialisation in any relevant area, but one of the following would be advantageous: planting design; embedding sustainability in landscape architecture practices; creative design processes.
Evidence of engagement in research and/or a PhD qualification is desirable. Eligible candidates may also be able to join the Architecture Research Hub and contribute to the rich and multidisciplinary research culture of the School of Art Research Centre.
You will have strong interpersonal and communication qualities, excellent organisational and administrative skills, and a collaborative approach to working that is essential to the role. You will demonstrate a commitment to an excellent student experience using relevant and inspiring learning and teaching.
