*** this position has been closed, and no new applications will be accepted. ***

The Department of Architecture in the College of Architecture, Art, and Planning at Cornell University invites applications for a full-time, tenured-track faculty position in architectural design beginning in fall 2019.

Architecture at Cornell dates back to the founding of the institution; it is one of the oldest programs of its kind and has a long and distinguished tradition of design, scholarship, and teaching. Degree programs in the department include a professional bachelor of architecture (B.Arch.); a professional master of architecture (M.Arch.); a post-professional master of science (M.S.) in advanced architectural design; M.S. degrees in computer graphics and matter design computation; and a Ph.D. in the history of architecture and urban development. The new M.S. degree in matter design computation and state-of-the-art facilities — including the recently opened Milstein Hall designed by OMA and the soon-to-be completed Mui Ho Fine Arts Library — reflect both a continuing commitment to excellence and an ongoing renewal of architectural education at Cornell.

Candidate qualifications must include evidence of exceptional strength in architectural design studio teaching as well as in practice and/or other research scholarship related to design. We seek candidates having focused interests and demonstrable expertise that engage contemporary and/or expanded practices and who have the ability to engage in the full breadth of the architecture curriculum. We are particularly interested in candidates whose research and/or design work explores wider scales of the built environment, with specific focus on urban, infrastructural, and/or ecological systems.

A professional degree in architecture is considered a necessity for this position. Responsibilities will include the teaching of architectural design studios at both beginning and advanced levels of the curriculum in both the professional and post-professional programs, as well as required and elective classes at the undergraduate and graduate levels; thesis advising; research and other scholarly achievement; service and advising of B.Arch., M.Arch. and M.S. students; and overall contributions to the department, the college, and the university.

Required application materials:

  1. One-page letter of application including a brief statement outlining teaching and practice/research objectives
  2. Curriculum Vitae
  3. One portfolio of design practice, pedagogical materials, and student work
  4. List of three references with telephone and mailing/email addresses

All applicants must submit these materials using the university's online application tool at: . Please note that hardcopy application materials will not be returned.
