Part of Birmingham City University, a diverse place to study right in the heart of the city, the Birmingham School of Architecture and Design hosts courses including Design for Future Living (with MOBIE), Interior Architecture and Design, Product and Furniture Design, Architecture, Landscape Architecture, Urban Design, Design Management, and Conservation of the Historic Environment.

Joining the Birmingham School of Architecture and Design you will be responsible for supporting the 3rd year/Level 6 coordinator of the BA (Hons) Interior Architecture and Design course to assist in consolidating the new interior architecture curriculum and delivering the studio design modules, reporting directly to the Course Director. 

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 will include assisting with cross-School teaching and activities such as design studio teaching, Co.LAB / live project modules and SuperStudio, course administration, leading student trips, research or enterprise work, and contributing to our overseas teaching commitments with our international partner Institutes in Hong Kong and Malaysia, and a number of future potential partners. Knowledge, experience and skills in sustainability, adaptive re-use and retrofit would be an advantage.

There are opportunities to contribute to research, enterprise and consultancy.

Previous higher education teaching experience is essential with level / year / module leading experience highly desirable; industry experience is also highly desirable. 

Excellent administrative skills are required as is the ability to multi-task. 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, technical studies, skills building, and / or professional studies.

The BA Interior Architecture and Design programme has been through substantial change over the last few years and has an emerging reputation which is bolstered by its location in a strong School of Architecture and Design, increasing recruitment and a new Foundation feeder course. Two fractional appointments may be considered.
