The Columbia University Graduate School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation (GSAPP) is seeking candidates for one or more full-time, tenured, tenure-track, or professional practice faculty positions in its architecture programs. Appointments are open in rank and based on candidates’ experience. GSAPP represents a unique environment that fosters the design of new modes of living and sharing, creates new forms of knowledge and practice, and renews our commitment to engaging the world and the urgent issues of our time. At GSAPP, we are inspired to nurture the bold creative thinkers, original designers and engaged idea makers of the next generation. Combining creative experimentation and unbridled imagination with disciplinary practice and incisive critical thinking, the school has built its long legacy of excellence as an urban condenser of ideas. Founded in 1881, GSAPP currently offers degrees in Architecture, Urban Planning, Urban Design, Historic Preservation, Real Estate Development, and Critical, Curatorial, and Conceptual Practices and has over 700 degree students representing more than 50 countries.
Essential responsibilities include teaching, research, and administration. A clear record of significant professional achievement and/or academic experience is required. GSAPP seeks architects whose emphasis is on practice and design research and whose work explores the questions surrounding environment and the advancement of architecture today. GSAPP faculty should innovate their disciplines and create an environment where students can not only be educated in current and past ideas and methods, but can also explore and test new ideas. Therefore, preference will generally be given to candidates who are able to teach and/or conduct research in both traditional fields and in an emergent specialization.
GSAPP enjoys a diverse faculty and is actively seeking to expand a core group of individuals who can bring new ideas and approaches by way of their own experiences and backgrounds. Columbia University is committed to supporting the work-life balance of its faculty and is an affirmative action, equal opportunity employer. We strongly encourage applications from women, minorities, individuals with disabilities, and veterans.
