The Azrieli School of Architecture and Urbanism invites applications for a full time, tenure-track appointment at the rank of Assistant Professor to begin July 1, 2018, in the area of Design Teaching + Emerging Practice. We seek an engaged, collaborative, thoughtful colleague to join our faculty and to participate in the academic and intellectual life of the School. This position will strengthen our commitment to design excellence, through both teaching and practice. The ideal candidate will understand and demonstrate the relationship between design as an academic discipline, and practice as a mode of design research.
The candidate will demonstrate evidence of outstanding teaching as well as an established and current record of emerging architectural practice. Design studio is at the core of our curriculum and the School prides itself on a tradition in which architectural design, representation, and theoretical and technical inquiry contribute to a synthetic investigation of architecture at all scales. S/he will be expected to teach graduate and undergraduate design studios, as well as required and elective non-studio courses. In addition, all members of the faculty supervise graduate thesis students, and conduct other projects and research in which their creative thought and practice are embedded within the culture of the School. All faculty members also contribute to the School through committee service.
The faculty of the Azrieli School pursue an array of design research agendas, and there are opportunities for collaboration with several established research and outreach units at the School, including the Carleton Immersive Media Studio (CIMS), C-SALT (The Carleton Solids and Tectonics Lab) and C-URL (Carleton Urban Research Lab).
Qualified candidates must have a professional degree (M.Arch or equivalent), evidence of creative, emerging practice as demonstrated through built work, competitions, public exhibitions, etc., and a record of successful and rigorous studio teaching at both the graduate and undergraduate levels.
In addition, at least one of the following is highly desirable:
- Professional registration in Architecture
- Ph.D. in Architecture or a related field (or be in the final stages of obtaining a Ph.D.)
