Located half a mile from the city centre, Manchester School of Architecture (MSA) is an innovative collaboration between Manchester Metropolitan University (MMU) and The University of Manchester (UoM), uniting two schools of architecture with over 100 years of educational experience to create one of the largest architecture schools in the UK. During its time MSA has gained a reputation for the variety, vitality and quality of the work and achievements of its students. This is not only reflected in appraisals by the professional institutions – the Architects’ Registration Board (ARB) and the Royal Institute for British Architects (RIBA) – but also by the number and variety of prizes gained externally.
Many of our specialist research staff have practised as architects, and our approach to architectural research is interdisciplinary and broadly conceived, encompassing areas as diverse as urban design, urban development, ecological and landscape design, and the conservation and management of historic environments. The opportunities for collaborative architectural research across the two universities are unparalleled and research bids in a variety of disciplines are strengthened by the involvement of strong architectural researchers.
You will further develop the connections between research and academic practice in the MSA, connecting this activity to the School's undergraduate and taught postgraduate programmes. At the same time, you will support the Head of School and senior academic colleagues to manage the on-going development and integration of research.
You will identify, develop, support and maintain successful partnerships with external agencies, professional establishments and professional bodies, and promote the University within the field of Architecture, Urbanism and Landscape Architecture. Using your specialist knowledge, you will undertake, develop and coordinate new areas of research in these fields. You will hold a doctoral qualification or equivalent.
