Emphasis: Design Pedagogy +
The primary focus of this search is for a candidate that can demonstrate inventiveness and expertise in teaching design studio at all levels.
As a program, we thrive on our studio faculty's diverse interests. Candidates who seek knowledge ranging from the poetic implications of building assemblies in design, to the impacts of socio/historical/cultural/political factors on design, to the connections between theory and making, to the potential of advanced graphic communication to propel design thinking will be seen to add meaningful breadth to our studio faculty.
The successful faculty candidate will communicate the power of effective design in their own work, be able to discuss the theoretical investments of both their work and their design pedagogy, and provide examples of innovative approaches they have incorporated into their design teaching; the successful candidate must be qualified to teach in other required parts of the curriculum (beyond studios and seminars) as well. Further, the successful candidate should be able to use written scholarship to both deepen and make explicit the connections between their pedagogy and practice, articulate a clear research agenda, and demonstrate a commitment to producing peer-reviewed work.
The ideal candidate will exhibit a commitment to hands-on learning and digital integration in service of the creative potential of architecture. Finally, we hold in the highest regard those candidates who not only exemplify the qualities described above, but who are energetic, collegial, highly-motivated, and show depth of thought in all aspects of their work.
