The Department of Architecture seeks a distinguished design professional and experienced teacher to fill a full-time tenure track position at the Assistant Professor level to start in Fall 2022. The new faculty member is expected to have demonstrated ability in teaching design studio and lecture and seminar courses to undergraduate and graduate students, preferably in a public university. The preferred field of specialty is urbanism, with experience in urban design, urban studies, urban planning, and/or urban history in global and/or transnational contexts.

The Bernard and Anne Spitzer School of Architecture (SSA) is committed to social and sustainable concerns in practice, as well as to providing access to the finest education in the art, history, and technology of architecture, urban design, and landscape architecture to the broadest and most diverse student population. A prospective member of the faculty should be prepared to participate and contribute to this lively intellectual atmosphere, and join the SSA in its commitment in furthering justice, equity, diversity, inclusion, and anti- racism within the academy and the design professions.
