Assistant Professor (Tenure-Track) - Architectural DesignEmployer Website: http://apply.interfolio.com/135681
The Architecture Program at Bard College invites applications for a full-time tenure-track position in architectural design. We are especially interested in those whose work treats the practice of design as both a mode of critical inquiry and a creative site for intervening in movements for social liberation and climate justice. The appointment will be at the rank of Assistant Professor with an anticipated start date of August 2024.
Architecture at Bard is a new undergraduate program that launched in the Fall of 2020. Structured around an innovative curriculum, the program looks to critically re-situate architecture as a site for insurgent socio-spatial imaginaries and as a tool for building alliances that seek more just, liberating futures. As a non-professional degree program, Architecture at Bard privileges a forward-thinking pedagogy that aims to equip students with an expansive and experimental approach toward the field that simultaneously opens paths for engaging other disciplines spatially.
We are interested in candidates whose research and pedagogy challenge broader expectations of, and possibilities for, the field. Architecture at Bard is strongly committed to recruiting and supporting historically underrepresented voices, agendas and experiences that continue to be systemically underrepresented in both academia and architecture. The interested candidates should feel comfortable teaching in a design studio setting as well as bringing their own specific lines of inquiry into other pedagogical spaces within the program and across the college. Candidates are expected to teach at various levels across the curriculum, as well as to play a crucial role in shaping the future of the Architecture program.
Candidates should hold at least a Master of Architecture degree or its equivalent and must have a proven record of teaching experience and an agenda of future engagement in the field through their research work. Because Bard is an institution that thrives on cross-disciplinary and collaborative work, the provided teaching statement should elaborate on how the candidate’s work could invite collaborations between other program and initiatives within the college and across the larger Bard network.
Review of applications for this position will begin on December 22, 2023, and continue until the position is filled. Those interested should submit the following documents through Interfolio by following this link: http://apply.interfolio.com/135681
