Updates on engineering and architecture jobs available around the world

Part-time, Fixed term

We are seeking to appoint a part-time hourly paid Lecturer in Architecture to deliver Design Studio Modules on BA(Hons) Architecture, Part 1. We are interested in applicants who have experience of research informed teaching and leading a Design Studio. You will have successfully completed a master’s degree in Architecture and be able to demonstrate a good record of achievement in teaching, practice, or research.  You will demonstrate excellent design skills, team-working, organisation, and management. You will be an advocate for responsible and inclusive practices and be a champion for promoting diversity and equality in architecture. The role involves preparing and delivering design studio teaching on our city campus including preparing course material, leading workshops and tutorials, conducting assessment, preparing course material and preparing and writing feedback. Teaching is scheduled for 10.00 -13.00 and 14.00 -17.00 on Mondays and 10.00-13.00 on Thursday.

The Leeds School of Architecture is one of five subject areas within the Leeds School of Arts at Leeds Beckett University; the other subject areas are Film, Music and Performing Arts, Creative Technologies and Art and Design. This context provides an ideal setting to support our critical, collaborative, and interdisciplinary processes, and to lead debates about emerging forms of practice and innovative research.

Leeds School of Architecture’s expanding pedagogical terrain comprises the following programmes: BA (Hons) Architecture, Part 1; Master of Architecture, Part 2; PG Dip Architectural Professional Practice and Postgraduate Certificate in Architectural Professional Practice, Part 3;  the Architecture Degree Apprenticeship (launched in 2021); PhD in Architecture, Urban Design, Interiors and Landscape, as well as courses in Interior Architecture (BA), Urban Design (MA), and Landscape Architecture (BA, MA, PG Dip). There are dynamic engagements between staff and students through our interdisciplinary studio culture facilitated by the exceptional provision at Broadcasting Place and the wider resources across the School of Arts. Beyond the conventional understanding of architecture based on building studies, our school explores the concept of ‘architecture as multiplicity’, unfolding architecture’s intersections with other disciplines and with its mediated, digitised, coded, augmented, and hybridised existences along with the radical potential of new forms of making.

Our dynamic studio-based courses address the critical and creative role of the contemporary designer in relation to physical and social contexts – from the revitalisation and the sustainability of the urban environment, to live projects and community participation, to the application of forms of digital fabrication or new technologies, to the exploration of new media reinventing languages of multidisciplinary practice. Design, professional studies, technology and history and theory modules are inextricably linked and the BA(Hons) Architecture and Master of Architecture courses provide the foundation for creative practice of contemporary relevance.

Closing date: 5th December 2022 (23:59). Please note that you will not be able to edit or submit a part-completed application form after the closing date.
