Joining the Birmingham School of Architecture and Design as a Lecturer in Architecture you will be principally responsible for teaching design studio. One role is specifically for leading the 2nd Year of the BA programme whilst the other role is for a 1st Year deputy leader.

The 2nd year leader will be principally responsible for leading and teaching that level of the BA programme, including writing briefs, cohort administration, managing and co-ordinating Visiting Tutors, and liaising with other staff involved in the programme such as the Programme Director, and the Subject Area Directors of History Theory and Cultural Context, Technical Studies, and Professional Studies.

The 1st year deputy will be principally responsible for working alongside the BA first year leader, teaching design studio, leading studio groups, and supporting teaching and delivery through lectures, workshops and other activities.

We will look to you to ensure an excellent student experience through the use of relevant and inspiring learning, teaching, and assessment methods. You will also provide support and mentoring to individual students via our personal tutor system.

Other duties and opportunities may include assisting with cross School teaching and activities such as live project modules and superstudio, course administration, organising and leading student trips, research and/or enterprise work, and contributing to our overseas teaching commitments with our international partners.

Previous teaching experience is absolutely essential and industry experience is also welcomed. You should have excellent design and communication skills, as well as be able to contribute to another area of the curriculum such as history and theory, construction / technical studies, skills building, or professional studies.
