The School of Interiors at the University of Kentucky College of Design seeks applicants for a Lecturer position with expertise in one or more of the following categories: design systems, theory, digital media, fabrication, and multidisciplinary collaboration.

The School of Interiors is currently poised for significant growth and change as we approach our 50th year as a program. Under the College’s leadership, we are looking ahead to the planning and construction of state-of-the-art facilities, as well as a directive to expand design education through addition of new design programs that will strengthen unprecedented opportunities for growth and advancement of our program towards an outstanding future. In 2022, the School of Interiors will occupy a new building, along with the rest of the College and Landscape Architecture, designed by world-renowned architect, Jeanne Gang. As we embark on this new horizon, we are seeking candidates who have an agenda of scholarly research and/or creative work with commitment to professional, scholarly, and teaching excellence.

As a School of Interiors faculty member, candidates will teach undergraduate studio courses and lecture/seminar courses, engage in School service commitments, and be an active presence in the School as well as the design community by collaborating with campus and community partners.

The University of Kentucky is committed to a diverse and inclusive workforce by ensuring all our students, faculty, and staff work in an environment of openness and acceptance. We strive to foster a community where people of all backgrounds, identities, and perspectives can feel secure and welcome. Candidates should be dedicated to diversity, equity and inclusion, in their teaching, service and/or research activities.
