Arts University Bournemouth is the leading professional arts university dedicated to turning creativity into careers. Offering courses in art, design, architecture, media and performance, we are passionate about our specialist subjects and dedicated both to education and the creative industries which we serve.
We are seeking a new appointment to join the postgraduate Architecture team at AUB. The ideal candidate will be a specialist in contemporary architectural practice, an experienced academic leader and active researcher.
The Masters of Architecture (MArch) course is accredited to RIBA Part 2 Level and partners the BA (Hon) Architecture course accredited to Part 1. It has a focus on the ecologies (body, social and environmental) of its rural, coastal and urban contexts through research and projects. The Masters course has strong links with regional, national and international architectural practices with students involved in a wide range of collaborative projects with industry.
AUB prides itself on collaborative working between students, staff and industry. The post would be mainly focused on the Masters level Architecture, but may also involve working with the BA Architecture course as well as engagement with the wider AUB Postgraduate School courses. The course has a strong studio focus and access to excellent workshops and technical support to help students achieve their best.
Applicants will need to be able to draw on their practice experience and apply this to teaching within varied rural/urban and coastal contexts with the ability to effectively work with the course team to develop projects, briefs and teaching that applies across the ‘Three Ecologies’; the mental, social and environmental ecologies.
Candidates from outside of academia must be able to demonstrate the ability to make the transition to becoming a leading academic. They will also hold a teaching qualification and ideally have FHEA Membership or being willing to obtain this within two years of appointment.
The successful candidate will have significant practice experience, evidenced through being a recognised authority in the subject with internal and external peers as well as having a detailed knowledge and deep understanding of architectural processes and practices.
