Description

The Department of Architecture and Urban Design (A.UD) at UCLA invites applications for non-tenure-track full-time and part-time, Assistant Rank, Adjunct Professor positions in Architectural Design beginning in academic year 2019-2020.

Ranked the #6 Graduate Program among architecture schools in the 2017 Design Intelligence Survey, UCLA A.UD is well-recognized for its excellence in design, scholarship, research, and pedagogy. Degree programs in the department include a Bachelor of Arts in Architectural Studies (B.A.), a professional Master of Architecture (M.Arch.I), a post-professional Master of Architecture (M.Arch.II) in advanced architectural design and research, and a Master of Arts/Doctor of Philosophy in Architecture (M.A./Ph.D.)

The three-year M.Arch.I curriculum prepares students for the practice of architecture by providing a focused framing of today's cultural, ecological, political and technological questions with a view to what architects may bring to bear on such complex issues. At each stage of the curriculum, A.UD graduate students become equipped to not only lead the professional field but also to construct new opportunities by positioning their design activities within a rapidly changing world. Our post-graduate program, Suprastudio, is a ten-month research program focused on four themes: Mobility, Entertainment, Urban Strategy and Technology and is located at a satellite campus. This program, unconstrained by professional accreditation requirements, introduces students to real-world questions in collaboration with industry partners to expand the architect's role in shaping the future.

The department seeks candidates with experience in practice and a strong commitment to the art of teaching design in the context of our degree programs and, more largely, of contemporary architectural education. Teaching responsibilities include team-taught core design studios as well as advanced studios and seminars. We desire candidates that have demonstrable expertise in one or more of the following subject areas: building construction and assembly, including related representational approaches; urban design, landscape, and site design; design technology with emphasis on new and emerging technologies for design production, representation, and/or fabrication, including associated pedagogical approaches unique to the teaching of design technology in the context of architectural education. We also welcome applicants whose focus lies in other subject areas of similar relevance to contemporary architectural scholarship and practice. Regardless of focus, we desire applicants with a strong and ongoing contribution to the field, including a commitment to academic scholarship in the context of a major research university such as UCLA. An established body of published work that indicates future promise is especially desired.

We desire candidates with qualifications that include evidence of exceptional skill and pedagogical sophistication in architectural design studio teaching as well as in practice, research and/or creative work related to design. We desire candidates that have three or more years of university-level teaching experience. We desire candidates with precisely articulated and active research agenda engaging practice and/or scholarship, the ability to engage the full breadth of the architecture curriculum and demonstrable expertise that engages contemporary practice.
A Master of Architecture degree or higher is a requirement for this position. Responsibilities will include teaching at undergraduate and graduate levels, research, advising and service.
