Become a Design History tutor at the LSA

The London School of Architecture is seeking applications for part-time tutoring roles across its two-year MArch in Designing Architecture (ARB/RIBA Part 2) programme.

The LSA is seeking exceptional tutors who can support the Design History module at the school.

We welcome applications from:

  • architectural historians with a range of interests and methodological approaches. This includes historians who may have no prior teaching experience within an architecture school.
  • experienced architectural practitioners who would like to share a deep knowledge of the histories of architecture and the built environment
  • early career practitioners who would like to gain teaching experience in architectural history by helping post-graduate students hone their writing and research methodologies.
  • those who are eager to engage in the LSA’s innovative pedagogic model of uniting practice and academia by re-thinking how history and historical thinking can enrich contemporary practice

The LSA has an equal opportunities policy and seeks for its faculty to reflect its ambitions to widen access to and participation in the architectural profession.

Applicants should:

  • subscribe to the mission for the school and be able to make a critical contribution to it: www.the-lsa.org/about/purpose/
  • experienced tutors to have at least four years’ teaching experience (i.e. not just as a visiting critic)
  • early career practitioners to have at least four years in practice.
  • be available to teach in our studio in East London
  • preferably be practicing in London, in your own practice or as an employee


  • please submit a portfolio, CV and covering letter by Friday 9th July 2021 to admin@the-lsa.org
  • please make clear in your covering letter which of the programme areas is of specific interest to you as well as your level of practice and teaching experience
  • interviews will be during the weeks of the 12 and 19 July 2021
  • positions commence in September

If you have any questions please email the LSA’s Academic Director, Samantha Hardingham — samantha@the-lsa.org

Teaching Development Bursary

The LSA recognises that there are significant structural barriers to diversity in architectural education which are often financial. Our school is committed to establishing a diverse teaching base to support an increasingly diverse cohort of students — we aim to establish a student body that is 50% from disadvantaged neighbourhoods and 50% ethnically diverse by 2030.

To support this goal, the LSA is offering three Teaching Development Bursaries worth £1,000 each. These will be used to give educators the opportunity to gain first-hand experience of our innovative Design Think Tank teaching model and potentially explore other teaching opportunities within the school.
