Job description


Tutor (Continuity in Architecture Atelier) (5707)

Joining the Manchester School of Architecture as a Tutor in Architecture you will be responsible for teaching within one of our vertical Ateliers which consist of students from the final year of the degree programme as well as the two years of the M.Arch programme. You will work within an Atelier staff team structure which combines core staff along with a number of part time tutors, all with specialist expertise based on the research led agenda of the Atelier.


This specific role is for the Continuity in Architecture atelier which is founded on a conviction that the architect needs to become a specialist in understanding cities, their evolution, and the way they embody, express and facilitate social life. We encourage our students to explore the theories of contextualism, critical regionalism and new urbanism to synthesise an appropriate design response, often in charged heritage settings.


Working specifically as a tutor in MArch 2, the candidate should have experience of research-through-design projects at postgraduate level. In recent years, the Atelier has been working on collaborative research projects with local councils and interest groups in historic settings, producing research outputs such as exhibitions, articles, book chapters and built interventions in Rochdale (2019), Shrewsbury (2020), Bradford (2021), Accrington (2022) and this year in Preston.


We are therefore seeking a Tutor with a background in architectural theory stemming from a contextual position, with interest in how the teaching and research of the Atelier can be applied to live research questions. In recent years we have taken a particular interest in [1] The Future of the Historic High Street [2] How to ReUse Contentious Heritage and [3] The Origins, Evolution, Development and Imagined Futures of Small Settlements. The successful candidate will evidence sound knowledge and experience in the design and delivery of architectural projects from conception to completion, as well as an interest in research, knowledge exchange and working with local interest groups.


In recognition of staff contributions to the University's achievements during the 2021/2022 academic year, an additional discretionary payment of 2% per annum will be added to your salary until 31/07/23 in order to ensure consistency amongst existing and incoming staff.  This additional 2% will be paid pro rata in equal monthly installments, on top of your salary each month until 31/07/23.

Manchester Metropolitan University is committed to supporting the rights, responsibilities, dignity, health and wellbeing of staff and students through our commitment to equality, diversity and inclusion.

We promote applications from all sections of the community, irrespective of background, belief or identity, recognising the benefits that a diverse organisation can bring and particularly encourage applications from groups which are underrepresented in the University workforce.

We recognise the benefits and importance of an environment that supports flexible working and are open to conversations about this throughout the application process.
