The Department of Architecture at the University of Strathclyde is currently recruiting through our Global Talent Attraction Programme for experienced researchers, and the Chancellors Fellows scheme emerging researchers. There are two posts, Professor/Reader of Low Carbon Design and Strathclyde Chancellor's Fellow in Healthy Buildings.

Professor/Reader of Low Carbon Design

We are the University of Strathclyde. Our vision is innovative and ground breaking, placing us amongst the world’s leading international technological universities. 

We are seeking to appoint extraordinary Professors / Readers who complement our strategic themes. For more information visit Strathclyde Global Talent Programme or email globaltalent@strath.ac.uk

The Department of Architecture aims to be a leading provider of education and research in the Built Environment. The need to address the challenges of climate change through innovation in design and construction will lead to substantial research opportunities in the coming years, with the drive towards zero carbon and healthy buildings. 

We are looking for an outstanding candidate who has an established portfolio of research and knowledge exchange projects and an ambition to develop new areas in order to build world class research and teaching in low and zero carbon design within our Department. Ideally, the candidate will be able to translate this knowledge into teaching at undergraduate and postgraduate levels to enrich and inform the curriculum as well as clearly communicating this information to students and practitioners. 

The opportunity 

We would love to hear from you if you have an internationally recognised research portfolio in this area, are publishing in leading international journals, are actively pursuing funding whilst building impactful collaborative links with industrial and business partners and if you have a passion for progressing teaching and learning. In keeping with our commitment to equality and diversity, we encourage applications from all sections of the community, particularly those who can support our Athena SWAN activity, which inspires the advancement and representation of women in higher education. 

Strathclyde Chancellor's Fellow in Healthy Buildings.

Even prior to the Covid-19 pandemic, challenges were arising regarding the relationships between the built environment and health, particularly in the context of climate change. The need to design buildings and urban environments to enhance occupants’ health is now fundamental.  We are looking for an early career researcher who has expertise in this area and who is also able to use this knowledge to inform teaching and practice. We are particularly interested in candidates who have modelling and simulation skills and an understanding of BIM in this context. This post will expand on recent appointments to build substantial world leading expertise in this area which is of strategic importance to the Institution and Society as a whole. 

The opportunity 

We would love to hear from you if you have a PhD and postdoctoral research experience; an emerging publication history in high quality academic journals; and research interests which align with this area of strategic priority – particularly if you already hold an external fellowship that can be transferred to us. 

In keeping with our commitment to equality and diversity, we encourage applications from all sections of the community, particularly those who can support our Athena SWAN activity, which inspires the advancement and representation of women in higher education.
