Architect Job: Tutor (Infrastructure Space Atelier)

Updates on engineering and architecture jobs available around the world

Joining the Manchester School of Architecture as a Tutor in Architecture you will be responsible for teaching within one of our vertical Ateliers which consist of students from the final year of the degree programme as well as the two years of the M.Arch programme. You will work within an Atelier staff team structure which combines core staff along with a number of part time tutors, all with specialist expertise based on the research led agenda of the Atelier.

This specific role is to work within the Infrastructure Space atelier. The atelier is led by a methodological approach that centres infrastructural systems and networks to explore contemporary spatial conditions. We examine large territorial areas through the lens of policy documents, using mapping, geo-location, novel computation and other research methods traditional to architecture and urbanism to allow students to find and criticise latent social, cultural, political, economic and environmental issues. Student projects are typically large in scale and in ambition and address architecture, urbanism and landscape.

We are seeking candidates for two roles, one in M.Arch1 and the other in M.Arch2. All candidates should have a strong background in architectural theory stemming from a landscape-urbanism position, with attention towards system and network thinking and with an interest in, and knowledge of, sustainability and ecology. The successful candidates will evidence sound knowledge and experience in the design and delivery of architectural projects from conception to completion. Ideally, you will also have experience of the use of computation in research or design. The M.Arch1 candidate should evidence a strong practice based architectural background and an excellence in technical design ability. The M.Arch2 candidate should demonstrate a strong background in theory, policy and representation. Please indicate on your application which role you would like to be considered for. 

Previous teaching experience and industry experience are essential. candidates should have excellent design and communication skills, a thorough understanding of the legislative context for architecture and a demonstrable capacity for critical thinking in relation to design practice.

Informal discussions may be held with Atelier leaders, Professor Richard Brook or Dr Richard Morton via r.brook@mmu.ac.uk or r.morton@mmu.ac.uk
