  • Contribute to a paradigm shift in environmental education, research and practice
  • Create exceptional student-centred learning experiences in wānanga/studio environments

Huri Te Ao The School of Future Environments at AUT, established in 2020, is AUT's newest school. Our mission is to develop innovative, ecologically-oriented programmes in Architecture, Built Environment Engineering, Construction, Emerging Technologies, Ecological Urbanism, and Project Management - and the transdisciplinary connections across those fields.

The School is strongly committed to Te Tiriti o Waitangi and Mātauranga Māori. We aspire to shape our future environments by responding to Te Ao Māori, Moana-nui- a-Kiwa identity and the multi-cultural diversity of Aotearoa New Zealand.

We are optimistic about the positive contribution that our programmes and our graduates can make to the global climate emergency, social justice and the emergent, as-yet-unknown challenges of the 21st century. The School is based in Te Ara Auaha the Faculty of Design and Creative Technologies, a diverse community of creative, technical, scientific and entrepreneurial thinkers, makers, researchers, and doers, working in an environment designed to foster imagination and innovation.

We invite applications from academics and practitioners in Architecture and related disciplines who have the ambition, courage, and expertise to bring about a paradigm shift in the way we conceive, design, and construct the environments in which we collectively live, work and play.

As Aotearoa New Zealand's only university of technology, we are particularly keen to hear from people who can create exceptional collaborative student-centred learning experiences in wānanga, design studios or project-centred environments. Successful candidates will have expertise in one or more of the following areas:

Architectural Design and Emerging Technologies 

  • We are particularly interested in theoretical and practical applications of Artificial Intelligence, deep learning, eco-tectonics, regenerative design, zero-carbon futures, and data-informed approaches to architectural/environmental design.

Professional Futures

  • Strategic design, systems thinking, social and technological innovation, entrepreneurship, and new business models for architectural, ecological and cultural practices in the 21st Century.

Applicants should hold a PhD or equivalent in Architecture or a relevant discipline. While there will be an expectation to teach in our undergraduate and postgraduate programmes in Architecture, we are also very keen to hear from people who can advance research and practice across the wider School.

Appointments will be made at a level appropriate to qualifications and experience and can commence at a mutually agreeable date. Applications for permanent part-time or fractional positions will also be considered.
