The successful candidate will have the opportunity to collaborate with colleagues in SoA’s Integrated Design Research Lab and state-of-the-art CNC fabrication lab. Applicants must demonstrate their ability to be an effective building technology and design studio teacher. Evidence of emerging and peer-reviewed research, published design work and scholarship, design awards, research grants and/or design practice is required. A professional degree in Architecture is required (M.Arch. and/or B.Arch. + post-professional graduate degree); professional licensure and/or PhD is preferred.
The SoA offers five degree programs: Bachelor of Arts in Architecture (B.A. in Arch.), Bachelor of Architecture (B.Arch.), Master of Architecture (M.Arch.), Master of Urban Design (MUD), Master of Science in Architecture (M.S. in Arch.), as well as dual-degree programs in Architecture + Urban Design and Architecture + Computer Science.
