With over 7,000 students, our portfolio of undergraduate and postgraduate courses and postgraduate research represents the breadth of the creative industries, from art, design and fashion, to games, music, film and business.

Our mission is to deliver exceptional higher education and research, harnessing the fusion of creativity and technology as foundations of the future economy. We use our knowledge and expertise in these disciplines to generate positive and sustainable opportunities for all.

We now have an exciting opportunity for a Lecturer to join our established team based at the Woodlane campus at Falmouth University, Cornwall. This beautiful location makes the most of its regional context - just five minutes from the beach and surrounded by a stunning tropical garden. Based in The School of Architecture, Design and Interiors (SADI) at Falmouth University this successful interior design course has recently expanded to include separate interior architecture provision (previously it was integrated into the interior design course).

You must be able to demonstrate up-to-date working knowledge of current practices and research within the field and you will have a passion for, and experience of, developing innovative and inclusive pedagogy.

We are looking to hear from candidates who have the following skills/experience:

  • Interior Architecture / Interior Design experience working within a practice or having run their own projects.
  • Experience of teaching within and HE environment
  • A demonstrable commitment to scholarship, research and/or innovation.
