Faculty: Faculty of Social Sciences
Salary: Grade 9: £50,618 - £56,950 per annum. Potential to progress to £65,997 per annum through sustained exceptional contribution.
The School of Architecture is one of the best in the UK, with the REF 2014 confirming our position as a world-class centre for architectural research. In a joint submission with our colleagues in the Department of Landscape and the Department of Town and Regional Planning, we are proud to have achieved 4th place overall by subject. The School has a strong reputation for excellence and innovation in teaching (joint first for undergraduate teaching in the UK National Student Survey 2016), the Architect’s Journal Top 100 Survey rates us as one of the best UK Schools outside London, and we are the only School consistently within the top five as ranked across all the main UK league tables.
The School is an especially dynamic, diverse and international department with a lively and engaged student body and a large graduate school. Live projects, working with real clients in the community, are an important aspect of what we do. It is for this reason that we enjoy a reputation for being perhaps the most socially and politically engaged school of architecture in the UK.
We are committed to growing our research profile and leadership through investment in key areas and we wish to recruit an exceptional candidate for a Senior Lecturer/Reader in Architecture, to lead the Humanities strand and contribute to teaching and research in history and theory of architecture. You will have an excellent research track record of high quality publications and other forms of innovation at an international level, evidence of achievement in funding capture, and a proven ability to cultivate and support the research of colleagues. You will have a first degree and a relevant PhD (or equivalent qualifications/experience). You will be expected to engage with our Space, Cultures and Politics (SCP) research group which hosts established critical theorists, historians and conservationists. You will also contribute to the culture of critical pedagogy within the School through core and specialist undergraduate and postgraduate teaching and to the supervision of research students.
The School is a leader in supporting Architectural practitioners to do research. A willingness to engage in knowledge exchange with architectural practice to develop research is also a priority.
We’re one of the best not-for-profit organisations to work for in the UK. The University’s Total Reward Package includes a competitive salary, a generous Pension Scheme and annual leave entitlement, as well as access to a range of learning and development courses to support your personal and professional development.
We build teams of people from different heritages and lifestyles whose talent and contributions complement each other to greatest effect. We believe diversity in all its forms delivers greater impact through research, teaching and student experience.
