The Department of Architecture is delighted to announce their search for a new Professor of Architecture. The Department of Architecture at the University of Westminster is one of Europe's leading centres for architectural research and teaching. In the past decade our students have achieved unparalleled success in the RIBA President's student awards, and the Department made a very strong entry at the last Research Assessment Exercise, with 20% of its research being graded as world leading. As a Department we celebrate our diversity of approaches, and the breadth of our student intake, a combination that has historically placed us in the forefront of architectural education.

We are looking to appoint a new Professor appointment to join a dynamic and ambitious set of staff and students. This is a key position in the development of Architecture at Westminster, and the person will be expected to lead architectural research as well as making a strong intellectual contribution to the Department and University. You will have an international reputation for research in the field, and be able to make connections to teaching within the Department and to the world of practice beyond. You should have an established record in producing world leading research outputs, which may include designs or artefacts. We are not looking for a specific area of expertise, but rather the ability to lead by example, and to be curious and generous enough to support and develop other people's architectural interests.
