Associate Professor of Architecture


The School of Architecture and Planning invites applications to fill a tenure-track position at the level of Associate Professor or Ordinary Professor depending on the applicant’s qualifications, to lead the Sacred Space and Cultural Studies design concentration and the Walton Program, to begin in August, 2024.

The program at the School of Architecture and Planning offers students courses of study leading to a Bachelor of Arts in Architecture degree, Bachelor of Science in Architecture degree, Master of Science in Net Zero Design degree, and an accredited professional Master of Architecture degree.

In the Sacred Space and Cultural Studies concentration, graduate students, faculty, and professionals can reflect, learn, and research, the deepest spiritual and cultural roots of place-making through architecture. This examination is supported by the mission of the University.

The School welcomes fair, critical, and open debate about how building traditions, especially the sacred ones, serve the common good in diverse places and cultures. The ideal candidate will take a long view of architecture and the human condition. That individual should seek to teach the art of building through the lens of sacred culture to help students understand, preserve, and reimagine the traditions of vernacular, classical, and contemporary architecture in the service of building communities.

  2. Master of Architecture (Professional) Degree from a school of architecture with NAAB-accreditation or another nation’s equivalent accrediting body;
