About the opportunity

The School of Architecture, Design and Planning has been offering architectural education for more than a century and is one of the top 25 built environment Schools globally.

We are also interested in candidates with the ability to teach professional practice. Candidates must have expertise in architectural design, and a demonstrated capacity for leadership across educational, professional and institutional settings. Successful candidates will collaborate with colleagues in the school's state-of-the-art architectural science, computation, and fabrication labs, and will have opportunities to enhance partnerships with design, urbanism, engineering, computer science, environmental studies and allied fields.
