Sydney School of Architecture, Design and Planning
Reference no. 1111/0617

  • Join an organisation that encourages progressive thinking
  • Be valued for your exceptional knowledge and experience in generating innovative architectural design using advanced digital technologies
  • Full-time, continuing, Academic level B or C role with attractive remuneration

About the opportunity
The Sydney School of Architecture, Design and Planning, from its foundation in 1918 as the first faculty of architecture in Australia, has been an internationally acknowledged center for intellectual, scientific and aesthetic research in architecture and the built environment, which attracts the highest quality applicants in Australia. In the 2017 QS World University Rankings by Subject, the School was first in Australia, and ranked in the top 15 in the world for Architecture/Built Environment.

The School is focused on the built environment and it creatively deploys methods of architecture, design, planning, science, art, engineering, IT, and social sciences to analyse, understand and design innovative environments. Our range of disciplines enables us to respond to the great and complex global challenges of our time – urbanisation, sustainability and rapid technological progress. Our excellence in research and teaching is supported through world-class facilities: our university laboratory infrastructure for research and design includes a lighting lab, audio and acoustics labs, and the only IEQ (Indoor Environmental Quality) lab in the Southern Hemisphere. We have a major and ongoing investment in cutting-edge fabrication technologies including Australia’s best architectural robotics facilities, which form part of the Design Modelling and Fabrication Lab (DMaF).

We are expanding our capacities in the areas of computational design and advanced manufacturing in architecture, and we are seeking applicants with a demonstrated track record in this field to augment our current academic team. It is expected that applicants will have a well-defined research agenda, and that they will be able to substantially contribute to the preparation and delivery of teaching in the School’s undergraduate and postgraduate architecture programs.

Information on the School’s relevant teaching units is available below:

  • Bachelor of Architecture and Environments
  • Bachelor of Design in Architecture
  • Master of Architecture

About you
The University values courage and creativity; openness and engagement; inclusion and diversity; and respect and integrity. As such, we see the importance in recruiting talent aligned to these values in the pursuit of research excellence. We are looking for a Lecturer/Senior Lecturer in Computational Design and Advanced Manufacturing (Architecture) who possesses demonstrated expertise in the innovative use of advanced digital technologies, such as:

  • Generative design, parametric modelling and visualisation
  • Advanced computational analysis and simulation
  • Advanced fabrication and manufacturing technologies
  • Robotic fabrication.

The successful candidate will have a portfolio of architectural practice, practice-based research and teaching that examines the contributory role which computational design and advanced manufacturing plays in the practice of architecture. The portfolio will further demonstrate conceptual strategies for the creative and innovative engagement with digital technology, simulation, materials and fabrication processes, prototyping and construction.

About us
Since our inception 160 years ago, the University of Sydney has led to improve the world around us. We believe in education for all and that effective leadership makes lives better. These same values are reflected in our approach to diversity and inclusion, and underpin our long-term strategy for growth. We’re Australia’s first university and have an outstanding global reputation for academic and research excellence. Across 9 campuses, we employ over 7600 academic and non-academic staff who support over 47,000 students.

We are undergoing significant transformative change which brings opportunity for innovation, progressive thinking, breaking with convention, challenging the status quo, and improving the world around us.
