Faculty of Engineering, Computing & the Environment
School of Engineering and the Environment
This is an opportunity to contribute to a number of modules across Levels 4-7 in the suite of Construction, Surveying and Civil Engineering taught programmes, particularly in the field of building information modelling (BIM) and management, with emphasis on core subjects, BIM and other digital technologies, (e.g. virtual reality, sustainable and carbon reduction technologies, etc.), construction project management and practice. The appointed person will have a PhD and will require a knowledge of the application of BIM to the built environment and competency in using proprietary BIM software applications.
The successful post-holder will engage actively in applied research in a field related to at least one of the subject areas taught on the degrees within the Department and will contribute to the University’s objective of securing an outstanding reputation for research-informed learning, innovation and integrated academic practice.
You will come to us with a first degree in relevant subjects within built environment or equivalent at 2.1 or above together with a PhD in a relevant field or equivalent professional qualification. You will also have or be working towards a PGCHE, UKPSF2 or equivalent. Professional qualifications would be highly desirable. You will also bring experience of working on a research project, contributing to research groups and publishing your research in peer-reviewed journals.
You will provide high quality practice-focused teaching, participate in research project supervision, enterprise and/or professional activity to the benefit of a diverse range of students and colleagues, and also act as lead supervisor for PhD students. You will also provide expertise and access external networks using a developing national reputation in the area of activity. The successful candidate may concentrate on a combination of teaching, research, enterprise and/or professional activity.
By the end of the probation period, you must have achieved the relevant level of UKPSF recognition (if this has not already been obtained). For those new to teaching, this will be through our accredited Introduction to Learning and Teaching and for those experienced in teaching, through our Kingston Academic Practice Standards Framework.
We have a dedicated campus for our aerospace, aircraft and mechanical engineering courses at Roehampton Vale, on the outskirts of Kingston town centre and close to Richmond Park. Collaboration between academia and industry is integral to study at Kingston, and the delivery of courses is supported by the Industry Advisory Board and other professional bodies.
If there’s one thing we stand for above all else at Kingston University’s School of Engineering and the Environment, it’s active, problem-based learning. In short, making sure our students leave us ready for the challenges of the 21st century. Our challenging curricula and outstanding facilities combine across two campuses to deliver undergraduate, postgraduate and research opportunities in civil engineering and construction, aerospace and aircraft engineering and mechanical and automotive engineering. Join us and you’ll be part of an environment that prides its facilities – from concrete materials and geotechnical laboratories to global navigation satellite systems equipment and facilities for exploring fluid dynamics, engine testing and aerospace.
This is a full time permanent role with a starting salary of £42,182 per annum.
Interviews are expected to be held on Friday 7 July 2023.
