The Ohio State University

Assistant Professor of Landscape Architecture


The Landscape Architecture Section of The Ohio State University’s Knowlton School invites applications for a full-time, tenure-track position at the rank of Assistant Professor. Located in one of the fastest-growing metropolitan regions in the U.S., the landscape architecture program pursues urban pasts, presents, and futures through highly engaged, design-centered, and future-oriented curricula and individual research trajectories. We seek a colleague working on urban environments and/or urban ecologies under the broad umbrella of race, justice, and the built environment. Preference will be given to those candidates whose work embraces the intersection of landscape architecture, architecture, and planning.

The Knowlton School is an academic unit within the College of Engineering housing sections in architecture, landscape architecture, and city and regional planning. With 45 faculty, 750 students, and 15 staff, the Knowlton School forms a distinct community fostering inquiry and exchanges across sections, the college, and the university as well as Ohio and Midwestern communities at large.

Founded by the eminent modernist AD Taylor in 1915, the Landscape Architecture Section at Knowlton is one of the oldest in the U.S. Our faculty is comprised of twelve full-time collegial and collaborative scholars dedicated to advancing the work, disciplinary questions, and practice of landscape architecture. We offer accredited degrees at both the graduate (master’s) and undergraduate level.

This position is supported by Ohio State’s Race, Inclusion and Social Equity (RAISE) initiative, which will enhance the university’s world-class research programs on race, inclusion, and social equity. Over the next decade, the Ohio State will add at least 50 tenure-track faculty members to existing scholars whose research can help to narrow social disparities in educational attainment, health outcomes, rates of incarceration, political representation, environmental impacts, and economic well-being.

Applicants for this position should hold a terminal degree in their discipline (master’s or PhD) and engage in the built environment through practice, research, and/or creative inquiry. Individuals from allied disciplines (architecture, urban design, planning, urban ecology, etc.) and/or with a background in engaged practice are encouraged to apply. Teaching responsibilities include graduate and undergraduate urban-focused design studios and research seminars.
