The Architects Accreditation Council of Australia (AACA) seeks researchers to work on a major study into Architectural Education and the Profession in Australia.

The research study will be undertaken from August 2018 to April 2019 and will be managed by the AACA and supported by the Association of Architecture Schools of Australasia (AASA), the Australian Institute of Architects (AIA), the Association of Consulting Architects (ACA), the Australian Deans of Built Environment and Design (ADBED), Government Architects Network Australia (GANA) and State and Territory Architect Registration Boards (ARBs).

As an important first step, the AACA is calling for expressions of interest (EOIs) from freelance researchers, university architecture academics and other suitably qualified professions who are interested in working part-time on the project from August 2018.

Research tasks will include survey and interview design, literature review, fieldwork and report writing. Researchers will ideally have experience in a university architecture department (or similar), will be familiar with the context of architectural practice and regulation in Australia, will be great written and verbal communicators, and will be comfortable working in a fast-paced research team environment. A commitment of at least two days per week is sought in the period August 2018 to November 2019 (excluding the Christmas-New Year period). Some travel within Australia will be required.

Expressions of Interest need to be submitted by Friday, 10 August.
