We are delighted to announce a new collaboration between Grimshaw Architects and the Fabrication Lab. The project is launching in the next few weeks and will have a vacancy for a Part 1 or Part 2 Architectural Research Assistant. We will be looking for a creative, pro-active graduate, interested in working on a cutting-edge, practice-led research project. The position will be open to graduates from this or last year from our BA, BSc and MArch degrees.
The paid role will be based part-time in Grimshaw’s London Practice and part-time at Westminster in the Fabrication Lab. You’ll work on a project-based research agenda within Grimshaw‘s Computational Design Group, drawing on the resources and expertise in the Lab including CNC machining, robotics, 3D scanning and XR technologies. This role will be complemented by working in the Fabrication Lab assisting with the further development of our research-informed teaching.
You’ll need to be highly organised, have strong communication skills and have both an appreciation of the Grimshaw design ethos, as well as the teaching and research ambitions of the Fabrication Lab.
If you are interested in finding out more about this opportunity, please write an expression of interest to D.Scott@westminster.ac.uk, including a few sentences about what attracts you to the position. We expect to hold interviews within the next few weeks and for the position to begin soon after.
