School of Architecture, Building and Civil Engineering
The School of Architecture, Building and Civil Engineering at Loughborough University offers a unique, diverse, inclusive and exciting environment for research, innovation and education.
Our vision is for a world-leading integrated School that works with students and partners to address the great global challenges facing the built environment and is recognised internationally as a collaborative and supportive workplace where exciting progress takes place.
Our multi-disciplinary environment maintains our creative power to resolve the challenges that lie at the interfaces of traditional academic silos. Our research delivers tangible solutions to mitigate the global effects of climate change, create a zero-carbon future and realise the UK’s Industrial Strategy and the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals. Our students pursue exciting courses which prepare them to become tomorrow’s leaders in the Built Environment.
We have opportunities at Senior Lecturer and Lecturer levels in Architecture, Construction Management and Structural/Geotechnical Engineering.
These new strategic appointments will enhance the School’s world-leading expertise in infrastructure and the built environment and create critical mass to deliver University-wide research and teaching relating to, but not limited to, net zero design, construction and operation, and climate change mitigation and adaptation.
Join our welcoming academic community
We currently have opportunities for a Senior Lecturer and/or Lecturers in Architecture, Construction Management and Structural/Geotechnical Engineering.
Lecturer or Senior Lecturer in Architecture
We invite applicants who have a strong record in architecture, with experience of research and innovation in digital architectural design and practice. Expertise and specialisms in any of the following areas are also desirable:
- Digital design and fabrication
- Exponential technologies in architectural design (AI, robotics)
- Architectural practice and transdisciplinary innovation
- Critical Urbanism and Urban Morphology
- History and Theory of Architecture
- Community-based, Inclusive design
Lecturer or Senior Lecturer in Construction Management
Applicants should have a strong track record in construction, with experience in either management, quantity surveying, engineering or law. Expertise and specialisms in any of the following areas are also desirable:
- Construction management and technology
- Law and construction law
- Quantity surveying - estimating and measurement
- Net zero technologies - building systems, services and processes
- Sustainable buildings – standards, codes, carbon metrics and assessment
- Digital construction - BIM, digital twins and IoT
- Data science - AI and machine learning
- Health, safety and wellbeing
- Off-site construction and robotics
- Strategic, risk and systems management
- Cost, financial control and economics
- Quality control, standards and practice
Lecturer or Senior Lecturer in Structural/Geotechnical Engineering
We invite applicants who have a strong track record of research originality and excellence in structural and/or geotechnical engineering. We specifically seek applicants with expertise in one or more of the following areas:
- Computational, analytical and numerical modelling, with possibly constitutive model characterisation development of structural and/or geotechnical interaction systems
- Laboratory experimentation (small elemental testing and/or full large-scale) and field testing/monitoring
- Novel and emerging technologies (e.g. IoT sensing, AI, robotics, etc)
- Impact of climate change and extreme events on infrastructure performance, resilience and adaptation
- Sustainable low carbon/net zero design
Experience in designing with and/or teaching to Eurocodes would be beneficial.
The University is dedicated to supporting an equitable, diverse, and inclusive environment – to create better futures, together. The diverse backgrounds, characteristics and opinions within our community are our great strength and are key to our pursuit of delivering educational excellence, enterprise, research and professional services. We welcome applications from people from diverse backgrounds and minoritized groups as they are currently under-represented within our community.
We recognise the value of a fulfilling and balanced work and personal life which promotes wellbeing. We seek to support colleagues in achieving this balance and have family-friendly policies, flexible working arrangements and many roles can be suitable for dynamic working arrangement. This includes considering applications to work on a part-time, flexible and job share basis wherever possible.
