St. Martins, Shropshire
UNIVERSITY OF THE ARTS LONDON
The position is to work with two established researchers (Tatjana Schneider and Jeremy Till) on an important new international research project, which investigates the way that the architectural profession, and other practitioners working in the field of the built environment, might operate in the face of the climate emergency.
The primary objective of the project is to develop scenarios for new forms of spatial practice in the context of the climate emergency. Working with the two Principal Investigators and other members of the research team, the person appointed will have the opportunity to make an important contribution to the research project, which in turn has the potential to influence future practice and theory in the field.
The role includes developing an extensive literature review, organising public events, disseminating the results of the project and designing scenarios. The position is based in London, but will involve some European travel. A degree of remote working is possible.
