About the Opportunity:

The School of Architecture in the College of Arts, Media and Design invites applications for a Visiting Assistant Professor to expand the vibrant teaching and design-research initiatives of the School. The successful candidate will be appointed as a Design Research and Teaching Fellow. We seek candidates who will advance design research by presenting and exhibiting their research findings and leading classes focused in the candidate’s specific area of design, research, professional practice, and/or analysis of the built environment. Candidates will have the opportunity to engage and collaborate with all faculty of the School of Architecture and across the College of Arts, Media and Design (Art & Design, Music, Journalism, Communications, Theater), as well as with faculty across the University.


This position is a one-year appointment for emerging design practitioners and researchers. The role will entail leading three courses in total over the course of the academic year. One of these courses will be a year-long graduate research and design studio centered on the candidate’s research focus. Another course will be either a core design studio or seminar, wherein the candidate’s unique focus on the built environment could be brought to bear on such aspects of the core curriculum as urban housing, sustainable urban design, building sciences and technology, material experimentation, or landscape systems. The candidate will be invited to deliver a lecture as part of the annual lecture series in the School and/or prepare an exhibition of design research with an additional stipend from the School to support the exhibition installation. 


Candidates must have a terminal degree by the appointment start date in the proposed focus areas of the candidate’s research and anticipated teaching area (typically PhD's for Architectural and Landscape Architecture historians, and Masters degrees for design, professional practice, and building technology faculty). 

Additional Information:

Candidates are required to submit a CV, cover letter, portfolio of creative works and design research, and a one-page (maximum) project proposal for a year-long research project, including an outline for a year-long Masters Research/Design studio. Applications received by April 1, 2022 will be given priority.

All applicants have the right to accessibility support and accommodations. To request accessibility support and accommodations, please contact Julie Newmeyer,, Personnel Administration Manager for the College of Arts Media and Design.
