University Lecturer in Urban Studies

The Department of Architecture wishes to appoint a University Lecturer in Urban Studies with a focus on global challenges. The Department invites applications from candidates with a research focus on urban issues through transnational and/or transcultural perspectives across different geographic areas of the world. Relevant areas of research include smart cities, planning, mobility, migration, landscape, urban heritage, digital urban modelling and computer simulation, and the socio-political, technological and cultural implications of rapid transformations.

Candidates must have an excellent first degree in Architecture and a doctorate. We are seeking an individual with a rising academic trajectory and a strong record of research publications commensurate with their level of experience, who has the potential to become a key player in the Department's teaching and research activities. The successful candidate will be expected to take up appointment on 1 September 2020.

Please ensure that you upload the following: (a) a covering letter; (b) a Curriculum Vitae (CV), including a full list of publications; (c) a document describing (i) your main teaching and research interests, (ii) an indication of future research plans and directions, (iii) a description of the kind of teaching you would hope to offer, including a brief curriculum for 2 sample specialist courses (max. 2 pp. to include: aims, learning outcomes, and a schedule of up to 20 lectures/classes which would deliver the course material); and, if available, (d) one recently published research article.

Applicants are required to give contact details for three referees who may be contacted for a reference prior to interviews (in the final field for each referee 'At what point in the recruitment process may we contact this referee?' applicants should therefore select 'At any point in the process'.)

Interviews will be held on Thursday 12 March.
