This is a one-year, benefits eligible position to teach four studio courses. The Department offers a non-professional, interdisciplinary, liberal arts major in architectural studies with curricular emphasis on conceptual thinking through making and regard for the design process as a method of inquiry grounded in tectonic and material-driven creative practices.

The ideal candidate will also engage issues of equality and diversity within the field. Mentoring for professional development and preparation for all courses will be provided by tenured Architectural Studies faculty.
