Position responsibilities include fundamental architectural design instruction at both the graduate and undergraduate levels, as well as advanced design studios and seminar and/or lecture courses related to the candidate’s specific area of expertise and inquiry in architectural design. The successful candidate is expected to advance architectural knowledge through design while being attentive to the discipline’s cultural, environmental, and technological challenges.

In addition to teaching experience in design, candidates must demonstrate exemplary architectural work, and also an ability to disseminate their work in appropriate venues.

The Department of Architecture at UC Berkeley is housed within the College of Environmental Design (CED), along with the departments of Landscape Architecture & Environmental Planning and City & Regional Planning. Founded in 1959, the CED has long been at the forefront of environmental design education. As the first institution to combine architecture, planning, and landscape architecture into a single college, we offer a vigorous cross-disciplinary environment where collaboration and experimentation flourishes. Within this context, the Department of Architecture’s evolution has been nourished by social, cultural, technological, and environmental values, and our geographical setting. Situated on the Pacific Rim at the border with Latin America and facing Asia, California is an urban laboratory that has long been recognized as an area for design research and experimentation. These values are reflected in our innovative teaching, scholarly research, critical design inquiry, and discursive practices. Our award-winning faculty bring both broad and deep intellectual diversity to our educational community.
