The
John H. Daniels Faculty of Architecture, Landscape, and Design,
University of Toronto, invites applications for Assistant Professor in
Building Science. This is a Contractually Limited Term Appointment of
three (3) years, effective July 1, 2018, or as soon as possible
thereafter.

Set within a preeminent research university and
located at the center of one of North America’s most cosmopolitan
cities, the Daniels Faculty uniquely combines the disciplines of
architecture, landscape architecture, and urban design in undergraduate,
graduate, and professional programs. The Daniels Faculty explores the
intersections between nature, technology, architecture, and various
built geographies in a way that situates design to meet its contemporary
challenges. An emphasis on the connections between all of the design
disciplines at work in the remaking of the built environment is apparent
in the scholarly research and built work of many of our faculty.
Following a decade-long transformation of the school’s faculty and
professional programs, and a recent, major increase in its endowment,
the Faculty is expanding its undergraduate and graduate programs. To
accommodate both growth in its curricular offerings and an increase in
its research and outreach programs, a new building complex for the
Faculty has just been completed on Toronto’s historic One Spadina
Crescent.

We are looking for a candidate with a research agenda
in any area of building science, including but not limited to
structures, building envelopes, environmental systems, material
analysis, passive building, building and urban metabolism, and building,
cities and health. Candidates should have the capacity to contribute to
all of the design disciplines represented at the Daniels Faculty of
Architecture, Landscape, and Design. For more information please visit
