About the Opportunity:

The School of Architecture in the College of Arts, Media and Design invites applications and nominations for a fulltime or 2/3 full-time open rank Visiting Teaching Professor position to expand our vibrant teaching and research initiatives for our undergraduate and graduate Architecture and Landscape Architecture programs. We seek candidates who will lead classes in the area of design, research, professional practice, and analysis of the built environment.



This position will entail teaching two or three courses per fall and spring semesters (4-6 courses per academic year) on subjects relevant to their specific expertise areas, such as architectural or landscape history, building technology and science, architecture, urban and landscape design, and/or professional practice. Such topics might draw from the candidate’s professional and academic experiences and/or creative practice and research, as well as their local (Boston and Northeast USA) and/or global experiences. Class formats may range between design studios, workshop courses, seminars and/or lectures. Rank as an Assistant, Associate or Full teaching professor will be assessed in consideration of the candidate’s previous teaching experience and creative practice and/or research experience. In addition to teaching, all full-time and 2/3 full-time faculty are expected to contribute to the cultural life and function of the School of Architecture through service commitments on committees, special projects, and student advising and engagement activities. These service roles are determined based on alignments with candidates’ past experiences and profiles in teaching research and creative practice.



Candidates must have a terminal degree in the anticipated focus areas of teaching (typically PhD's for Architectural and Landscape Architecture historians, and Masters degrees for design, professional practice, and building technology faculty) by appointment start date. Candidates are normally expected to teach at both the undergraduate and graduate level. Candidates with a well-developed research agenda that will inform and advance current trends in the field through creative production, experimentation, collaboration, exhibition and publication will be given preference for the position.
