Assistant Professor – Tenure Track


The Hammons School of Architecture at Drury University seeks applicants for a tenure-track position at the rank of Assistant Professor, to begin August 2023. The successful candidate will contribute to a dynamic program and a distinctive educational model that provides a rigorous and NAAB accredited professional education in the context of a flexible curriculum grounded in the liberal arts.

Candidates must hold a graduate degree in architecture, with a PhD desirable. Preference will be given to candidates with teaching and/or professional experience as well as licensure.

The ideal candidate will demonstrate excellence as a designer as well as experience or strong potential in design-studio teaching. Along with this focus on design and its pedagogy, the ideal candidate will also have a record of commitment to design-based approaches to environmental sustainability and an interest in leading the integration of this content throughout the design-studio curriculum.

Applicants should clearly demonstrate these qualifications and should also identify how they can contribute to the school’s curriculum through non-studio courses. Applicants should present evidence of an ability to develop or continue a successful pattern of scholarship or critical design practice, an interest in interdisciplinary work and in collaboration across the campus, and a commitment to fostering and engaging with a diversity of ideas and experiences in support of an inclusive environment in the classroom and at the university.

Interested candidates should submit (in .pdf format only) an application package comprising a CV, a statement of teaching approach, a portfolio, and names and contact information for three references. Applications should be sent to Dr. Panos Leventis, Associate Dean and Faculty Search Committee Chair (pleventis@drury.edu). Review of applications will begin December 1, 2022 and will continue until the position is filled.
