Job description

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.

Embedded in the school's ethos is the way we continuously question what it means to practice as an architect as well as our determination to test and expand, via our distinct framework of experimental and ethical pedagogy, architecture's possibilities and responsibilities within societies, across cultural systems and towards the shared environmental and ecological domains. 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.

We are seeking to appoint a Lecturer in Architecture (1.0fte), to join our team of experienced academic staff and are looking for an inspiring, creative and enthusiastic academic to contribute to the delivery of our BA(Hons) Architecture, Part 1 and Master of Architecture, Part 2 courses. We are interested in applicants who have experience of delivering teaching in technology and digital design related modules. You will have successfully completed a Master's Degree in Architecture and be able to demonstrate a good record of achievement in teaching, practice and/or research. You will be a strong team player, demonstrate excellent skills in module leadership and in 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.

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 practice, 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.

To arrange an informal discussion about this post, please contact Sarah Mills (Head of Leeds School of Architecture): s.j.mills@leedsbeckett.ac.uk.

Closing date: 3 October 2022 (Midnight) Please note that you will not be able to edit or submit a part-completed application form after the closing date.
