The Department of Architecture is committed to supporting innovative visions for the future of architecture, with Fellowships playing a central role in this mission. Our fellowships are specifically designed to nurture emerging research agendas in architecture by providing support to individuals at key moments in their creative and academic trajectory. The department is seeking at least one and potentially two fellows to commence in September 2024.

Fellows will join the faculty on a one-year appointment, with the possibility of extension to three years following a review in the spring of their first year. These fellowships include a salary ranging from $65,000 to $80,000 per year, based on experience, a research fund of $8,000 to kickstart the applicant's research project. As a research-focused institution, MIT offers a range of internal competitive grants to support faculty research; our fellows are eligible for this support and have historically received internal funding for travel, exhibits, and research.

Fellows will be granted dedicated time and space to advance their proposed projects and are invited to share their results with the broader community through means such as exhibitions, publications, symposia, and/or public lectures.

In addition to their research activities, fellows will actively engage with students by teaching a course-load, balanced between fulfilling core program requirements and aligning with the fellow's research interests. These teaching opportunities may involve instructing in the MArch program at Core and/or Option studios, as well as undergraduate design studios. Courses may encompass studios, seminars, workshops, and lecture courses. Furthermore, applicants are expected to participate in limited service activities and contribute to the broader cultural life of the Department.

Qualifications

Candidates should have completed a MArch degree or equivalent.
