Job: Assistant Professor in the history and theory of architecture. Vancouver

The School of Architecture and Landscape Architecture (SALA) at the University of British Columbia

SALA seeks an innovative scholar and teacher able to bring critical historiographical and theoretical perspectives in architecture to a vigorous design education community in which history and theory are core competencies crucial to design thinking and method. The position begins on 1 July 2019.
You will pursue a significant and productive research and scholarship agenda, teach an innovative suite of history/theory courses and contribute service to SALA, UBC, and the community. Ideally, your teaching, research and scholarships will contribute to SALA and UBC’s academic themes and priorities.
Teaching associated with this position include architectural history courses central to a reconfigured history/theory curriculum in which hybrid lecture / discussion / seminar courses link particular topics defined by faculty to broader historical themes and methodologies.
You must hold a Ph.D. degree in architectural history or a related field at time of appointment and have successfully taught history and theory courses to students of architecture.
SALA is a close-knit and collaborative community of approximately 300 students and 24 faculty.  SALA is known for our commitment to quality design education directed toward the urgent human and environmental issues of our times, and to the artful integration of the built and natural environment across scales. SALA engages these themes through many academic and research interactions with the ‘living laboratories’ of UBC campus, the Vancouver metropolitan region, and its associated professional communities.
