Summary:

Are you interested in working for a world top 100 University? The Department of Landscape Architecture is looking to expand its international research and teaching staff cohort by appointing two outstanding candidates at the Lecturer level. In addition to developing an internationally distinctive design research profile, the post-holders will play a major role in undergraduate and postgraduate teaching and administration, as well as in the supervision of postgraduate research students. We are looking for individuals with a strong understanding of Landscape Architecture and a commitment to developing the discipline and profession, particularly in the field of design. We welcome applicants with experience of innovative design practice in the profession, as well as those with experience of research by design in academia.

 

The post-holders will specialise in arts and design, ideally with a particular interest in design and the physical manipulation and sculpting of space across a range of scales and in the craft of landscape construction, selection of materials and detailing, but may have a cross-cutting profile across the specialisms of landscape architecture, including planning and management. We are seeking self-motivated thinker-practitioners with a creative design research agenda that engages with issues of contemporary relevance, nationally and/or internationally. We are looking for applicants with aesthetic, visual and spatial literacy, design and graphic ability and a capacity for original design pedagogy.

 

The successful applicants will have, or be close to achieving, a PhD with a track record of conducting innovative research or have a well-developed portfolio of practice based design projects that will form the basis for the development of future research, together with a strategy for producing research outputs related to design/design theory. The post-holders will have the ability to engage and inspire a wide audience, including the international Landscape Architecture academic community, the diverse students they teach, and publics and organisations outside the academy. They will be committed to teaching excellence and innovation in curriculum, studio, fieldwork and creative practice.

 

We’re one of the best not-for-profit organisations to work for in the UK. The University’s Total Reward Package includes a competitive salary, a generous Pension Scheme and annual leave entitlement, as well as access to a range of learning and development courses to support your personal and professional development.

LANDSCAPE ARCHITECTURE DEPARTMENT
The Department of Landscape Architecture offers an accredited professional Bachelor of Landscape Architecture degree as well as an unaccredited liberal arts degree in landscape studies. The department is evolving with a clear emphasis on design and advocacy. We create innovative and excellent research, teaching and service in design and planning with students and faculty able to effectively communicate the value of the profession to our stakeholders and collaborators.

 

Design and advocacy are historic strengths of the department; several faculty and alumni of the department have held significant leadership roles in ASLA, CELA and allied organizations. Students’ design works frequently win awards in the Central States region and have impact on communities and regions around our state and beyond. 

Collaboration among disciplines is further encouraged through a growing variety of upper level interdisciplinary studios and seminars. A broad range of course offerings equips graduates with the knowledge and critical agility required to meet the challenges of designing for a changing world. In addition to the robust interdisciplinary activity within the School and the jointly led minors in sustainability, history of architecture, planning (Political Science), and planting design (Horticulture), the Department has strong collaborative relationships other university units across our campus and beyond, including the Center for Advanced Spatial Technologies, the National Park Service, BUNAC, and the Trust for Public Land. Their education provides students with critical frameworks for design thinking that also equip them to assume leadership roles in the profession and in their communities.


FAY JONES SCHOOL OF ARCHITECTURE + DESIGN AND COMMUNITY
In addition to its LAAB-accredited, undergraduate degree in landscape architecture, the Fay Jones School of Architecture + Design includes highly regarded accredited professional programs in architecture and interior design and an award-winning Community Design Center.

International education is required for all students and established programs in Rome, Mexico City, and Scandinavia among other locations. These opportunities introduce students to interior environments, buildings, cities and landscapes very different from their own, enriching their design vocabulary and deepening their understanding of other cultures. A rigorous Honors program within the School engages exceptional students in experiential education that deepens classroom learning. The school's honors curriculum targets students interested in independent exploration of topics related to the natural and built environment.

 

Students benefit further from diverse and committed alumni, a vibrant professional network, and the voices of leading design thinkers from around the globe. A robust lecture and growing workshop series bring nationally and internationally known practitioners, artists, authors and educators to the campus to share their projects and philosophies with students and faculty in all disciplines. Recently, Monica Ponce de Leon, Juhani Pallasmaa, Chris Reed, and Margie Ruddick have been among the leading thinkers to engage students in design discourse. Our existing professional and industry relationships and over 3000 alumni provide a robust professional network along with opportunities regionally and internationally.

 

The Fay Jones School of Architecture and Design is located in Vol Walker Hall and the Steven L Anderson Design Center, an award-winning addition and renovation that affords exemplary learning environments for students, and an outstanding teaching and working facility for faculty and staff. Completed in 2013, the building has received numerous accolades including a 2018 AIA Honor Award for the work completed by Marlon Blackwell Architects and Polk Stanley Wilcox Architects. The School’s state-of-the-art resources in computational design and design robotics as well as fabrication labs inform student and faculty making and design processes. The facility includes a Multimedia Center, Design Shop, Maker Lab, Materials Lab, exhibition gallery, and related lecture hall, classrooms and seminar spaces. Additionally, off-campus maker spaces, the U of A Community Design Center, U of A Resiliency Center, and the Garvan Woodland Gardens in Hot Springs (https://www.garvangardens.org/) expand teaching and research opportunities for both students and faculty.

 

The developing Windgate Art and Design District will provide for multiple facilities supporting the School of Architecture and Design and the School of Art.
