Carleton University

Associate/Assistant Professor – Architecture and Urbanism (Design and Building Technologies)


The Azrieli School of Architecture & Urbanism (ASAU) at Carleton University invites applications for a full-time (tenure-track) appointment at the rank of Assistant or Associate Professor with a specialization in design and building technology. Candidates must demonstrate aptitude for core design studio and lecture-based technology teaching and potential for high caliber research, creative or professional practice. The appointment begins July 1, 2023.

We are seeking candidates with strong design skills and in-depth knowledge of contemporary building systems and practices (cold climate preferred) with a demonstrated awareness that design and building technologies are enmeshed in sociocultural inequities and the climate crisis. Candidates should challenge conventions with expertise that might include environmental stewardship, climate mitigation and adaptation, application of resilient building practices in Northern Canada, land-based teaching grounded in local knowledge systems, among other areas.


Candidates will show promise or experience in teaching both undergraduate and graduate design studios and core teaching in building technologies.

Design and Research Practice 

Candidates will demonstrate excellence in design, research, or professional practice appropriate for the level of appointment.

ASAU recognizes a diverse set of outcomes as evidence of excellence including peer-reviewed publications, external funding, professional publications, design awards, publicly engaged research and creative works, built or speculative design, exhibitions, or installations, land-based, and/or design-build practice.

Candidates with non-traditional paths to architecture and academia are encouraged to apply, alongside candidates from historically underrepresented communities. In keeping with the Ked Ijichigenàniwang (Calls to Actions) of Carleton University’s Strategic Indigenous Initiative Final Report, Kinàmàgawin (Learning Together), we encourage applications from First Nations, Métis and Inuit candidates with living connections and commitments to specific Indigenous communities, and who are claimed and recognized by the leadership of those communities.
