Interdisciplinary Design Fellowship

The School of Architecture and Landscape Architecture (SALA) at the University of British Columbia (Vancouver) invites applications for an Interdisciplinary Design Fellow.  This is a non-renewable two-year term appointment at the rank of Lecturer beginning August, 2022 (anticipated). Applicants from the fields of architecture, landscape architecture and urban design with a demonstrated commitment to interdisciplinary education, design and/or research are encouraged to apply.

This new Interdisciplinary Design Fellowship supports SALA’s well-established reputation for interdisciplinary teaching and research. To further encourage a productive discourse across disciplines, each two-year fellowship cycle is framed by a theme determined by the SALA faculty. In 2022-2024, the inaugural theme REPAIR is intended to uncover the diverse forms of maintenance and care that sustain the contemporary built environment. The university seeks applicants whose research engages design strategies that reflect broad notions of repair. This may include topics such as mending through environmental systems and spatial justice, maintenance and materiality in building and landscape systems, critical and relational practices of community and public engagement, and attending to how the design fields have systematically overlooked and excluded underrepresented groups in academia and professional practice. It is expected that the theme will inform select course content, directed studies and faculty research and that the Fellow will play a central role in the discourse.

Applications are accepted until January 9 2022. 

More information can be found here and via the university portal.
