Applications are invited for the position of Senior Lecturer in Architectural Design and Contemporary Technologies within the Edinburgh School of Architecture and Landscape Architecture. The post-holder will have experience of conceiving and delivering high quality and research-led pedagogy in architecture, as well as a significant track record of internationally recognised research.

We are looking for evidence of work that is investigative and exploratory, with strong conceptual underpinnings.

In addition, the post-holder is expected to have a track record of delivering successful teaching and learning in higher education, and some academic leadership and management experience with evidence of successful implementation of subject related initiatives, events and/or projects.

Within the professional programmes, BA/MA (Hons) Architecture and/or MArch, the appointee will be able to devise and lead exciting and critical design studios that explore possibilities for practice driven by contemporary technological developments. In addition, the post-holder will have the opportunity to contribute to appropriate courses within ESALA’s important platform of postgraduate taught programmes. Applicants should be prepared to demonstrate their expertise and ability to attract and supervise doctoral students pursuing their research by both thesis and ‘by design’ (creative practice) routes, and experience of having secured funding for research projects is required.
