Job Details


Assistant Professor in Architectural Design

Post Date:

October 23, 2017


Cornell University


Ithaca, NY


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 beginning in fall 2018.

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 recently opened Milstein Hall designed by OMA and the soon be completed Mui Ho Fine Arts Library — reflect both a continuing commitment to excellence and an ongoing renewal of architectural education at Cornell.

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 candidates having focused interests and demonstrable expertise that engage contemporary practices and who have the ability to engage in the full breadth of the architecture curriculum. We are especially seeking candidates with expertise in emergent technologies broadly interpreted and/or ecologies.

A professional degree in architecture is considered a necessity for this position. Responsibilities will include teaching at undergraduate and graduate levels, research, advising, and service.

Required application materials: (digital preferred)

  1. One-page letter of application including a brief statement outlining teaching and practice/research objectives
  2. Curriculum Vitae
  3. One portfolio of design practice, pedagogical materials, and student work
  4. List of three references with telephone numbers and mailing/email addresses
