The Department of Architecture in the College of Architecture, Art, and Planning at Cornell University invites applications for visiting faculty term positions 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.
The duration of the visiting appointments will typically be for one semester or two semesters but may be up to three years, depending on the qualifications and interests of the candidates as well as the department's academic needs.
Applicants for the visiting faculty positions should possess a strong teaching record, graduate and/or professional degrees in architecture or associated fields, evidence of significant research and creative work in design and contemporary practice, and expertise in one or more of the following fields of investigation: architectural theory, urbanism, sustainability and environmental systems, digital media, and emergent technologies.
