Senior Lecturer/Lecturer Architecture
Norwich University of the Arts is committed to being an inclusive community that offers equality of opportunity and enables our staff and students to flourish and succeed, regardless of their background or personal circumstances. Our commitment to equality, diversity and inclusion is embedded in everything that we do. We celebrate the diversity of our backgrounds, cultures and actions, promoting art and design as a catalyst of social change. As such, we are champions for the creative arts, empowering all our students to be valued and productive members of society, with ambitions to change the world.
Our dynamic studio-based Architecture courses address in different ways the role of the contemporary architect in relation to physical and social contexts and environments, as well as to the specificity of the architectural discipline in relation to other forms of spatial and creative practice. This post will contribute to the future direction and curriculum of the Architecture programme – BA (Hons) Architecture and MArch Architecture – and will have a role in developing, leading and delivering innovative teaching.
The role involves working closely with the Director of Architecture and Interior Design and the Course Leader, Architecture to strengthen the critical approach to spatial and environmental design, and the collaborative links with other programmes and courses and with the profession and industry.
We are seeking to appoint an enthusiastic and versatile individual to a full-time post in Architecture, to contribute to teaching across all courses in the area of architecture, bringing professional and academic experience to the role. We would particularly welcome applications from candidates with teaching and/or research expertise in architectural technology, building construction or environmental science.
You will be an advocate for responsible and inclusive practices with an ability to foster a climate of success through critical debate and co-creation of learning. You will be a champion for promoting diversity and equality in architecture, its practices and environments. As an inspiring and innovative designer and a supportive and inclusive teacher you will show an innovative and engaging pedagogical approach in both on-campus and digital teaching sessions. You will be able to demonstrate currency in your professional experience and/or research practice. You will be a strong team player able to demonstrate excellent skills in leadership and in team-working, communication, organisation and management.
The appointment will be made at either Lecturer or Senior Lecturer level dependent on the successful candidate’s experience. We welcome applications from those currently working in education as well as industry-based professionals whom we can support in the development of their academic career.
