Salary: $98,775 - $117,290 per annum (Level B) or $120,993 - $139,510 per annum (Level C), plus 17% superannuation. Level of appointment is subject to qualifications and experience.

The Faculty of Architecture Building and Planning at the University of Melbourne seeks to appoint an outstanding academic with a passion for the field of Australian architectural history and architectural design. The successful candidate will have a research focus in Australian architectural history and heritage. The appointee will be capable of making significant contributions both in their areas of expertise as well as in the broader field of architecture, and have the desire to help build an architecture program of world excellence. As a multi-disciplinary Faculty, we welcome candidates who while focussing on architecture can contribute broadly to the Faculty’s research strengths, in this case, to the Australian Centre for Architectural History, Urban and Cultural Heritage (ACAHUCH). We also encourage applicants who can contribute to ongoing built environment related policy debate nationally and internationally.

The successful candidate will have a proven capability to make a significant contribution to teaching, research and engagement in Australian architectural history and architectural design. Their academic qualifications will be demonstrated through a strong track record in teaching and learning, research and engagement, with an emphasis on international dissemination of research findings and locally grounded knowledge.

Key to this role will be the demonstrated ability to influence and stimulate the student experience through a range of learning and teaching initiatives. The successful candidate will work with Faculty and University colleagues to refine and enhance the student experience, developing and delivering programs and initiatives that focus on interdisciplinary approaches to take advantage of the emerging design culture in the Faculty.

The appointee will teach at both graduate and undergraduate levels, including into the Bachelor of Design, and will participate in the supervision of research higher degree students. The appointee will have an established research specialisation in architectural history, and demonstrate a high level of research performance and potential relative to the level of appointment. They will have potential to cultivate research links with other groups and disciplines on campus, and with industry and the professions nationally and internationally.
