The School of Architecture, Planning and Landscape Architecture (APLA) at Auburn University, a comprehensive land-grant and research institution, is seeking a one year (nine month/two semester) non-tenure track visiting position for an appointment in the Landscape Architecture Programs commencing August 2023.

The Auburn Landscape Architecture Program are research-informed, design-led programs dedicated to training quality designers, addressing contemporary issues, and participating in critical landscape discourse. We offer both an undergraduate degree (BLA) and a graduate degree (MLA). Grounded in the state of Alabama, we focus attention on places where the richness, complexity, and messiness of landscape is prominently felt, including post-industrial cities, infrastructural landscape advocacy, and design research. At the end of both the undergraduate and graduate programs, students have the opportunity to work within the Alabama Lab, our design research lab.

In addition to the BLA and MLA, our School also offers three allied degree programs: Bachelor of Architecture, Bachelor of Interior Architecture, and Bachelor of Environmental Design. APLA resides in the College of Architecture, Design, and Construction along with the McWhorter School of Building Science and the School of Industrial + Graphic Design. Opportunities for collaboration within the School, College, and broader University abound. We participate in a legacy of engaged public interest design work exemplified by our School's two off-campus centers: the Rural Studio (Hale County, Alabama) and the Urban Studio (Birmingham, Alabama), as well as our College's futures studio (Mobile, Alabama).

The Landscape Architecture Programs seek a candidate with a strong interest in teaching both design studios and seminar courses. Candidates should have the capacity to teach in: a.) our core subject tracks (construction; dynamic systems; graphic studies; history, theory, and practice; plants) and/or b.) specialized areas associated with Auburn's emerging institutional research focus in Mass Timber (forest ecology/stand dynamics, timber production, alternative silviculture, or landscape management. With over 22 million acres of forestland in Alabama, there is particularly strong opportunity for a hands-on colleague who can collaborate with programs in Architecture, Forestry, Wildlife, and Engineering to shape a critical landscape engagement with Mass Timber and other timber-related initiatives.

Regardless of the candidate's scholarly focus, responsibilities of the appointment include teaching, service, and research. The successful candidate will demonstrate the capacity to maintain an active scholarly program disseminated through appropriate disciplinary venues. APLA faculty engage in and are supported in a broad range of formats for research and creative work.
