Assistant Professor (2 Positions)

The Azrieli School of Architecture & Urbanism at Carleton University invites applications for two (2) tenure-track faculty positions at the rank of Assistant Professor. The appointments will begin on July 1, 2020.
Our School’s vision is to further its identity as an innovative laboratory where buildings and cities are the subject of integrated and forward-looking design research. With its location in the G-7 capital city of Ottawa, a growing expression of activism as a unique dimension of design education, and a long tradition in material exploration and the thoughtful making of built space, the Azrieli School is well positioned to enhance architecture’s contribution to critical debates around contemporary environmental agendas. We are actively building research collaborations with other units across campus, including Indigenous and Canadian studies, industrial design, geography, public policy, and civil engineering, as well as with local and national institutions beyond the academy.
Candidates must demonstrate design insight and creative thinking, evidence of outstanding teaching potential in the design studio, and promise of academic advancement through funded research, scholarly publication, and/or professional recognition. We seek candidates who believe that architecture has the potential to validate the social, political, and ecological consequences of design, who combine optimism with critical thinking, and who are ready to test, challenge and re-frame prevailing assumptions about architecture’s relationship to technology.

We particularly welcome expertise in areas such as housing, responsiveness to climate change, experimentation in analogue and digital craft, the Canadian landscape, and intersections with Indigenous studies. In addition to design studios, candidates will teach other core and elective courses.

Required Qualifications:

1. A professional degree (MArch or equivalent) in Architecture.
2. A demonstrated record of excellent design skills as reflected in publications and a teaching portfolio and/or a professional portfolio of work.
3. Proficiency in English.

Preferred Qualifications:
1. Registration as an Architect and/or a PhD (Architecture or a discipline related to Architecture)
2. Some studio teaching experience.

Search committee will begin to review application on December 1, 2019, and will continue until position is filled.
