> TECHNOLOGY + DESIGN INTEGRATION
The School of Architecture (SoA) at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte invites applications from outstanding candidates for a tenure-track position in Building Technology at the rank of Assistant Professor. As digital technologies transform the building industry, from the techniques used to design and execute buildings to the technologies and systems deployed within them, the SoA seeks to expand its instructional and research capacity in innovative building technologies. This position will support the SoA’s aspiration to be a leading edge research institution in building technology and design integration with distinctive contributions in the areas of regenerative systems design, design computation and robotics, and emergent materials and applications. The successful candidate will collaborate with colleagues in SoA’s state-of-the-art research, fabrication, and computation labs, and will have opportunities to enhance partnerships with engineering, computer science, and allied fields. Responsibilities include: teaching undergraduate/graduate university classes in required core courses that may include building technology courses, architectural design studios, and elective courses with an emphasis on innovative structural assemblies, material systems and/or integrated design. Successful candidates will demonstrate a vigorous and innovative research trajectory with a potential for growth and be willing to advise graduate students. Particular interest will be given to applicants who engage in computational methods and advanced technologies such as robotics and/or fabrication as part of their teaching, design and/or research.

> ARCHITECTURAL HISTORY, THEORY & PRESERVATION
The School of Architecture (SoA) at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte invites applications for a tenure-track appointment in Architectural History at the rank of Assistant Professor. The school seeks candidates eager to expand the depth and breadth of architectural discourse, and to integrate historical and theoretical practices into design education. Primary objectives for the position include: 1) an ability to teach in the early part of the school’s required three-semester sequence in the history and theory of architecture; 2) an ability to work with SoA faculty to evolve the history curriculum in response to the contemporary reckoning with systemic social injustice and climate crisis; and 3) experience in public history and preservation / heritage conservation. The successful candidate will also be expected to offer advanced seminars to graduate and upper-level undergraduate students. The school is particularly interested in candidates with expertise in (and innovative approaches to) intersections of race and representation with public history and preservation, as well as candidates eager to engage in the studio culture of the school, so as to broaden our students’ understanding of the socio-cultural dimension of the design process. A PhD in Architectural History or a related discipline is required, and the successful candidate must demonstrate the ability to effectively conduct impactful research and scholarship.

> RESEARCH FELLOWSHIP IN EMERGING TECHNOLOGY + DESIGN
The School of Architecture (SoA) at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte invites applications for a two-year Research Fellowship in Emerging Technology and Design in architecture. As new material and digital technologies transform the building industry, from the techniques used to design and execute buildings to the technologies and systems deployed within them, the SoA seeks to expand its established research trajectory in innovative technology applications in the built environment. The Research Fellow will have the opportunity to develop a research agenda and collaborate with colleagues in SoA’s state-of-the-art research, fabrication, and computation labs as well as colleagues in engineering, computer science, and allied fields. The successful candidate will contribute to advanced building technology in both design research and teaching, the outcomes of which include publications, workshops, exhibitions, and public presentations. The Research Fellow will have the opportunity to advance research projects within the Integrated Design Research Lab and contribute to activities such as grant proposal writing, prototyping, simulation, experimentation, data collection and processing, and peer-reviewed publications. The Fellow will be expected to teach a reduced course load (one course per semester) in building technology and/or design studio instruction.
