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

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.

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.
