The Department of Architecture in the College of Architecture, Art, and Planning at Cornell University invites applications for visiting faculty term positions beginning in fall 2020 and spring 2021.


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 B.Arch.; a professional M.Arch.; a post-professional M.S. in Advanced Architectural Design (M.S. AAD); M.S. degrees in Computer Graphics and in 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, which include the recently-opened Milstein Hall designed by OMA and the Mui Ho Fine Arts Library, reflect both a continuing commitment to design excellence and innovation as well as an ongoing renewal of architectural education at Cornell.
