Teaching Fellow in Numerical Manufacturing

Full Time

The appointment will be on UCL Grade 7. The salary range will be £39,353 - £42,701 per annum, inclusive of London Allowance.

The UCL Bartlett Faculty of the Built Environment is the UK’s largest and leading multidisciplinary Faculty of the Built Environment, covering architecture, construction and project management, planning and environmental design and other specialist fields.

The Bartlett School of Architecture is one of the world's most exciting architecture schools, in one of its most inspiring cities. In recent years, we have been ranked UK’s No1 department for architectural research (RAE 2008 and REF 2014) and consistently voted the UK’s top school of architecture by the Guardian University League Tables.

The Bartlett Manufacturing and Design Exchange, B-made, the making and production hub within the Bartlett School of Architecture, is seeking a Teaching Fellow in Numerical Manufacturing to technically advise and support students, staff and researchers that use our facility at UCL Here East.  This post is a key enabling role at the UCL Here East site which is a cross-faculty and cross-discipline teaching and research facility with world class joint run workshops and laboratories.  The post holder will be expected to work closely and interchangeably with the team of staff and Teaching Fellows based at the B-made workshop at the Bartlett’s UCL Bloomsbury site.

The Teaching Fellow in Numerical Manufacturing will teach students manufacturing and fabrication procedures across the established crafts to modern methods, whilst advising them on the strategic use of both analogue and digital tools for the manufacture of their design projects.  The post will play a key role in supporting students, researchers and external collaborators with the development and execution of their practical and academic goals.  They will induct and train users of the workshop on best practice and safe use of equipment as well as assisting with practical duties such as machine maintenance, exhibition builds, and enforcing safety compliance.  This teaching role is based on a foundation of technical knowledge and demonstrable skill.

Applicants must be qualified to degree level (or have completed a recognised apprenticeship or have equivalent experience) and demonstrate an understanding of design as well as the interface between design and manufacturing.  The successful candidate must have demonstrable skills and abilities in at least one of the ‘Numerical Manufacturing Skills’ Key Areas and in at least one of the ‘Complementary Skills’ Key Areas, as outlined in the Person Specification of the Job Description.  Excellent technical skills, proficiency in CAD software coupled with knowledge and understanding of Health & Safety requirements, are also essential.  Experience of teaching including creating content and lesson plans, is highly important.  In addition, the successful candidate will be committed to high quality performance and a team ethos, whilst remaining calm in a busy but rewarding environment.

All applicants are requested to read the Essential and Desirable requirements in the Person Specification (within the Job Description document) carefully, before applying.
