Lecturer/Senior Lecturer in Architecture

£38,511 - £47,328

The Liverpool School of Art & Design is seeking as inspiring individual to challenge and guide students in the field of Architectural Design.  It is essential that the appointee has a demonstrable ability to lead design studios at all levels as a Year Coordinator and Architectural Design Module(s) Leader in the school’s professionally accredited BA(Hons) Architecture and Master of Architecture (MArch) programmes.

Our Architecture programmes are thoughtfully balanced to address the creative and technical demands of the profession. Taught principally through a studio environment that is seamlessly underpinned and informed by lectures and workshops, the over-arching ambition is to create graduates with artistic flair, and who are technically skilled and grounded in the demands of the professional role of the architect. The learning and teaching environment is progressively informed by research in pedagogy in the creative field. Whilst teaching the professionally accredited curriculum, the programme also develops less tangible skills in students, such as self-motivation and effective communication; a key ambition is to create independent thinkers, adept at resolving problems with creativity and originality.

Applicants should demonstrate a proven record of excellence in architectural teaching, curriculum development, and research or internationally recognised practice.
