Assistant/Associate Professor in the History and Theory of Architecture and Urbanism
The Department of Architecture in the College of Architecture, Art, and Planning at Cornell University invites applications for a full-time, tenured/tenured-track faculty position in the history and theory of architecture and urbanism 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.
We seek an innovative scholar and teacher who demonstrates commitment to critical historiographical and theoretical perspectives, and whose research interests complement and enhance current faculty strengths. The successful candidate will participate in and contribute critically and pedagogically to an architectural curriculum that offers B.Arch., M.Arch., M.S., and Ph.D. degrees. We especially welcome candidates whose research crosses or spans established areas of expertise, and explores intertwined histories such as those of the Americas.
Applicants should have a Ph.D., scholarly publications, and teaching experience. Responsibilities will include teaching of global survey classes in the history and theory of architecture as well as intermediate and advanced classes at the undergraduate and graduate levels; research and other scholarly achievement; service and advising of B.Arch., M.Arch., M.S., and Ph.D. students; and overall contribution to the department, the college, and the university.
