Are you interested in working for a world top 100 University? The Sheffield School of Architecture is making a strong commitment to strengthening disciplines and increasing its research profile, leadership, and learning and teaching through investment in key areas. As part of this investment we wish to recruit an exceptional candidate for a Lecturer post in Architectural Science - a discipline in which Sheffield has a long and strong academic tradition. You will have an excellent research track record of high quality publications (on track to be submitted to REF 2021), and to have established your own research theme. As a future member of People, Environments and Performance (PEP) research group, you will be working closely with colleagues to develop the international research standing of the School. Highly numerate, you will possess a PhD (or equivalent relevant experience) in Architectural Science or a closely allied subject (e.g. physics, engineering), and will be able to demonstrate experience in developing a portfolio of research activity, experience or interest in delivering learning and teaching and the ability to develop, manage and enhance a teaching programme. We are particularly interested in applicants with expertise in one or more of the following: • Adaptive comfort and/or behaviour and related modelling techniques. • Building energy simulation (at building, urban or national scales) and related workflows. • Characterisation and modelling of urban metabolism. SSoA is a large, lively and diverse School with a strong social and ethical tradition, as befits a School within a Faculty of Social Sciences. The Architect's Journal Top 100 Survey rates us as the best UK School outside London and we are the only School consistently within the top five as ranked across all the main UK league tables. The 2014 Research Excellence Framework (REF) has confirmed the School's position as a world-class centre for architectural research, with 48% of our research assessed as 4*, representing world-leading quality and outstanding impact, and 37% as 3* (Internationally excellent). We have consistently been rated in the last two decades in the top 5 for research in the UK. We are 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. We build teams of people from different heritages and lifestyles whose talent and contributions complement each other to greatest effect. We believe diversity in all its forms delivers greater impact through research, teaching and student experience.
