University of Maine at Augusta

The University of Maine at Augusta seeks qualified applicants for a full-time, three-year fixed-length design-studio instructor in the Bachelor of Architecture (B.Arch) Program, beginning fall 2020.  Based on specific criteria, the position may be converted to a tenure-track post after the fixed-length period.  UMA’s B.Arch is Maine’s only professional architecture program, built upon our twenty-five-year history of providing architectural education.  It is the only public B.Arch in northern New England.  This is an exciting opportunity to be part of this new chapter of architectural education in Maine.

The applicant will be expected to be of service to the department, college, university, and community, and will be responsible for student advising, recruitment, and other extra-curricular activities.  Position carries a 9-credit load per semester, typically teaching a combination of a design-studio and two core architecture courses each semester.

This position may require teaching day and evening; curriculum development; research and scholarship.  The successful candidate may also be expected to teach via one or more distance education modalities.  UMA has a small campus environment and stresses an excellence-in-teaching based approach for academic advancement and pursuit of tenure.

UMA Architecture’s Mission:  Architecture through Engagement
Our mission expresses who we are:  SMALL…INTEGRATED…HANDS-ON.  We are about people:  our students, our faculty, and our community partners.  We teach architecture through engagement, educating and empowering students to explore, investigate, and analyze the built environment.  Engagement brings students into active contact with each other, their coursework, and community.

UMA’s Architecture program is rooted in three essential elements.  The first is the mission to engage community; this is where our work takes place.  The second is the desire to work in collaboration, within the department, the university, and community partners; this is what allows us to affect positive change.  Third is seen in our curriculum, based in the idea of being “grounded in real”; these are the tools we use to affect our collective built environment.  For additional information about UMA’s B.Arch, please visit our web site at http://www.uma.edu/barch.
