The School, College of Arts and the University share an agenda of academic excellence, which includes a world-class reputation and ranking. In line with that agenda, the School of Architecture and the Built Environment is currently undergoing an ambitious plan of development and growth.

The School is one of six in the College of Arts and plays a lively role in the intellectual and cultural landscapes of the region and beyond. The Architecture provision in the School offers a range of undergraduate and postgraduate programmes including the BArch (ARB/RIBA Part 1), MArch (ARB/RIBA Part 2) and PGDip (ARB/RIBA Part 3) degrees. In the last few years, the School has introduced a number of new built environment programmes, including the CIOB accredited BSc (Hons) and MSc in Construction Science and Management, and a new BSc (Hons) in Architectural Science and Technology which is currently in the process of being accredited by the CIAT. In addition to these programmes, we offer MPhil/PhD degrees in Architecture and in Construction Science and Management.

The School is now recruiting a part-time (0.6FTE) Lecturer in Construction Management to support the development of high-quality teaching, research and practice in this field. This position offers the opportunity to play a significant role in the further development of our new programmes and to support the development of a high-quality research and professional practice environment in the field. We are particularly interested in candidates who can demonstrate knowledge and expertise in any number of the following areas: Construction Contracts and Law, Estimating and Measurement, Health & Safety, Construction Economics, Financial and HR Management, and Production Management. The School therefore wishes to appoint an experienced, future-oriented thinker in the field of Construction Management who has the ability to work with others in the University in the delivery of new, innovative, cutting edge programmes. The new programmes will meet the accreditation requirements of the relevant professional bodies (CIOB), but will also focus on four broad global challenges that we all face: resilience in the face of climate change; digital engineering and technology; construction innovation and technology; and urban growth and population dynamics.

A Lecturer will be expected to have an appropriate balance of research, professional practice and teaching within their portfolio and to evidence potential to progress to higher levels of academic grade appointment.

We are looking for an outstanding academic with the vision and ability to contribute to the development and delivery of innovative new programmes in construction management \ architectural technology. You will:

  1. Hold a first degree, and preferably a PhD degree, or equivalent, in a relevant discipline
  2. Have appropriate, and complimentary, subject expertise and specialist knowledge gained through research and publication, or through professional / industrial experience
  3. Have a high level of understanding of the future needs of the construction industry and other built environment professions
  4. Have experience of delivering advanced, research-informed or practice-informed teaching at undergraduate and postgraduate levels in a suitable subject area
  5. Hold a HE teaching qualification (HE PGCE or HEA recognition) or a commitment to complete one
  6. Be a member of an appropriate professional body, or working towards membership
