Department of Architecture - Assistant or Associate Professor in Architectural Design
The Department of Architecture in the College of Architecture, Art, and Planning at Cornell University invites applications for a full-time, tenure-track faculty position in architectural design.
Architecture at Cornell dates back to the founding of the institution; it is one of the oldest programs of its kind and has a long and distinguished tradition of design, scholarship, and teaching. Degree programs in the department include a professional bachelor of architecture (B.Arch.); a professional master of architecture (M.Arch.); a post-professional master of science (M.S.) in advanced architectural design; M.S. degrees in computer graphics and matter design computation; and a Ph.D. in the history of architecture and urban development. The new M.S. degree in matter design computation and state-of-the-art facilities -- including the OMA designed Milstein Hall and the recently completed Mui Ho Fine Arts Library -- reflect both a continuing commitment to excellence and an ongoing renewal of architectural education at Cornell. Cornell architecture students and faculty have opportunities to take advantage of the Rand Hall Fabrication Shop, a world-renowned library collection, and participate in an expanded global footprint that includes AAP NYC (https://aap.cornell.edu/academics/nyc), Cornell Tech (https://www.tech.cornell.edu), and Cornell in Rome (https://aap.cornell.edu/academics/rome).
Candidate qualifications must include evidence of exceptional strength in architectural design studio teaching as well as in practice and/or research work related to design. We seek creative and innovative candidates who will generously enrich and expand the intellectual life of the department through their character, research, scholarship, teaching, and through their engagement with students, colleagues, and the community. Candidates should have focused interests and demonstrable expertise that engage contemporary practices as well as the ability to engage in the full breadth of the architecture curriculum. Areas of expertise might both broaden and/or deepen one or more of the following areas: urbanism, discourse & culture, digital fabrication & material research, design ecology & climate change, computational methodologies & structure, design & technology, and representational tactics & new media. Successful candidates should be interested in pursuing interdisciplinary collaboration across the department, college, or university -- through labs, centers, critical practices, or individual collaborations across Cornell and beyond.
A professional bachelor's or master's degree in the field of architecture is required. Responsibilities will include teaching at undergraduate and graduate levels, research, advising, and service.
