Position Announcement

The University of Oregon’s Department of Architecture seeks applications for a full-time, Tenure Track Assistant Professor position in Architecture with a focus on Architecture and Health beginning September 16, 2023, in Eugene, Oregon.

We seek a scholar who can translate and build connections between the iterative design process and multiple modes of scientific inquiry to better characterize mechanistic relationships between the design of the built environment and the health and wellness of human and non-human species. This colleague will work at the intersection of social, and environmental determinants of health to understand the impact that architectural design has on ecology and biology across species. Applicants from historically under-represented backgrounds; emerging scholars and practitioners; and professionals with extensive experience are all encouraged to apply.

Successful candidates will teach innovative architectural design studios, lecture, and seminar courses in integrated design in the department’s B.Arch. and M.Arch. professional programs, and the M.S. and Ph.D. research programs, and will be expected to satisfy expectations for high performance in research and teaching, as well as in service contributions to the profession and the school/university at large.

Potential research, scholarship, and/or creative practice areas may include interdisciplinary, collaborative work on the social and environmental determinants of health at all scales, from the design of materials and buildings to the planning of neighborhoods and cities.
