Architect professors sought to meet 'soaring demand' in China
The University of Nottingham’s China campus is looking for six architecture staff members as it expands its engineering department to cope with soaring demand
The Ningbo branch of the UK red-brick university is to advertise for 30 academics to help its engineering teaching team keep up with the country’s need for infrastructure.
Among these roles are three assistant professors in architectural environment engineering, two assistant professors in architecture and built environment, and one associate professor in architecture and built environment.
Professor Gethin Wyn Roberts, dean of the Faculty of Science and Engineering, said: ‘We’re expanding our range of degree programmes to cater for increased demand for professional engineers in Ningbo, and China in general, and expect greater demand for our architecture degree courses.
‘We are also rolling out exciting international research projects that have the full support and generous funding from the Chinese authorities and other organisations.’
Closing dates for job applications are from the end of January to early March 2012, with interviews held in China in April, and the jobs likely to begin before the new academic year in September.
