Lecturer in Architectural Humanities


The Sheffield School of Architecture is making a strong commitment to strengthening disciplines and increasing its research profile, leadership, and learning and teaching through investment in key areas. We are seeking applications for a full-time Lecturer in Architectural Humanities, and to advance the Schools EDI action plan on decolonising the curriculum working on a thematic approach. You will have an excellent research track record of high quality publications and other forms of design and research innovation at an international level, evidence of external funding capture and collaborative work. As a future member of one of the research groups, you will be working closely with colleagues to develop the international research standing of the School.

You will possess a PhD (or equivalent relevant experience) in a relevant built environment discipline, ideally in the field of Architectural Humanities, and will be able to demonstrate experience in delivering teaching, and knowledge and ability in managing a teaching programme. We are particularly interested in applicants who will be able to support developmental work with the aim to address professional validation changes, and to extend the curriculum to include content on climate change and the global south.
