Assistant Professor of Architecture, Tenure-Track

The School of Architecture at the University of Kentucky invites nominations and applications for Assistant Professor in Architecture. The successful candidate will teach at the undergraduate and graduate level: two architecture studios, and a required lecture course in our program’s evolving building technology sequence. This full-time tenure-track position comes with a 9-month appointment, and start-up support to launch a research program that produces research output of national and international standing, as well as an expectation of service. The anticipated start date is August 1, 2023.

The SoA seeks applicants with an advanced degree, professional licensure, as well as a body of research in the form of built work, design research, or scholarship. Candidates must have teaching experience at the university level and professional experience, preferably in practices recognized for advancing architecture.

The SoA is highly interested in candidates with well-rounded architectural expertise, who can demonstrate strength in architectural design, as well as proficiency in the integration of architectural systems, such as building envelopes, material assemblies, structural systems, and environmental controls. The School aims to advance its building technology curriculum to engage the critical issues of our time, from climate change to social equity to emerging technologies. We seek applicants who possess pedagogical agility and creativity to engage with this mission through instruction, course development, and faculty collaborations that promote an overall integrated curriculum. Candidates should have a strong interest in teaching through creative instructional approaches and effective communication with their students.
