The University of Miami School of Architecture invites nominations, expressions of interest, and applications for full-time, tenure-track appointments in Architecture at the rank of Assistant or Associate Professor. U-SoA is known for educating students for success in a range of professional opportunities. Through a curriculum that focuses on city-making and integrates project-based inquiries, travel, and research the faculty prepare students to address the complex needs of an increasingly diverse society. Candidates are expected to demonstrate international/national recognition in a program of applied and/or design-based research, focused on environmental systems and sustainable building technology, and a documented commitment to teaching and mentorship of both undergraduate and graduate students.
The School of Architecture is engaged in several areas of interdisciplinary teaching and research with faculty in the College of Engineering, The Center for Computational Science, the Leonard and Jayne Abess Center for Ecosystem Science and Policy, and the Miller School of Medicine, and seeks to develop new knowledge through expanding these collaborations. Successful candidates should offer specific insight into how their appointment would serve to advance this goal with a demonstrated excellence in collaborative and interdisciplinary work.
Established in 1925 during the region’s famous real estate boom, UM is a major research university engaged in more than $330 million in research and sponsored program expenditures a year. Led by President Julio Frenk, the University comprises 11 schools and colleges serving undergraduate and graduate students in more than 180 majors and programs. U.S. News & World Report ranks UM among the top 50 universities in the country in its “Best Colleges” listings. Situated in South Florida, a region of nearly 6 million people strategically positioned between the hemispheres, Miami, UM’s unique urban context has been called a “City of the Future,” “an incomplete project, a place that is still being invented.” Currently benefiting from a momentous economic upswing and facing challenges of sea-level rise amidst a diverse and growing population, the city provides a stage and laboratory for the school’s educational and research projects.
