Job Description

The Department of Architecture invites applications for two Tenure Track Assistant Professor positions in Architectural Design.

The Department of Architecture in the College of Design and Engineering is ranked among the top 10 in the world, and Asia’s best in Architecture/Built Environment, by the Quacquarelli Symonds (QS) World University Rankings (2023). It offers the professionally accredited Master of Architecture programme as well as a range of graduate and undergraduate programmes in related fields such as urban planning/design, landscape architecture and conservation. The faculty is correspondingly diverse and international. The Department offers internationally competitive remuneration, generous employment benefits as well as access to research funding for both junior and senior academics. International applicants will also receive subsidized housing at Kent Vale.


Research by Design (RxD) at the Department of Architecture seeks qualified, interdisciplinary, and inspirational candidates with expertise in creative practice research (research through design, as opposed to research for design or research about design). We seek candidates with expertise in design with foundations in decarbonized & planet-positive futures, warming world futures, social justice, and inclusive futures, with a particular focus on being situated in the tropical geographies of Southeast Asia and the equator. Candidate research should be manifested through a robust portfolio of creative practice outputs and substantiated through forms of peer review and public and societal engagement, with evidence of leading with anticipatory and future-forward design ideas that impact evolving society and the profession. We are especially interested in candidates who are leaders in Research by Design methods in the academy and who leverage creative practice to imagine and manifest a more just world.

Successful candidates are expected to teach and lead design studio courses related to research by design, with core, elective, and seminar courses to complement the design studio.

All qualified individuals are encouraged to apply. To apply, please provide the required documents in pdf and indicate which position you are applying for by 15 April 2024. Applications after that date may be accepted if positions are still available.

Expected start date of the appointment is end of 2024 or early 2025.

  1. A letter of interest
  2. A complete Curriculum Vitae
  3. A Statement of Teaching (maximum two pages)
  4. A Statement of Research (maximum three pages) and a writing sample
  5. Names of four referees with contact details (who will be contacted only if shortlisted). Please highlight any who is a member of your PhD dissertation committee.
  6. Portfolio of work showing research through design
