Fwd: Faculty Position in Architecture, University of Oregon

Dear Colleague,

Our department is seeking a strong architectural designer who has particular insight into design communication for a full-time faculty position in Eugene, Oregon.  The person must be savvy about digital media and traditional representations, and articulate in conveying ideas.  Our department is interested in how conceptual ideas can be applied to practice.  The candidate must define a research inquiry to be pursued either through creative work or academic studies.  Application materials should highlight intellectual content and innovative contributions to a larger community.

In addition to this tenure-track opening, we also have visiting positions for distinguished architects and academics.

Please consider applying to one of these positions or help us identify talented candidates, particularly under-represented minorities and women.  Our School of Architecture and Allied Arts has a large number of women leaders who cultivate interdisciplinary collaborations.  Our department does a strong job in supporting new teachers through team-teaching and a formal mentoring program.

Please pass this to your networks. Thanks for your help on this important matter.

Nancy Cheng

Associate or Assistant Professor in Architecture
University of Oregon

The Department of Architecture seeks an innovative colleague to teach design studios and design communication courses.  We seek expertise in integrating traditional and emerging digital media into the design process, from initial concept generation to final building presentation. The appointee will be expected to pursue a well-defined research agenda in an area such as architectural representation, digital fabrication, building information modeling or other computational methods. Previous teaching and professional experience in architecture or a specialty related to design communication are desirable. Candidates should hold an appropriate advanced degree and demonstrate the potential for achievement in both teaching and research.

The University of Oregon Department of Architecture is a national leader in sustainable design. We would especially welcome applicants whose design media approaches could enhance sustainability education and research and their relationship to other areas of our program. This appointment will begin in September 2011.

We also have these distinguished visiting positions open:

Frederick Charles Baker Chair in Architectural Design. The Baker Chair is an endowed chair with a special focus on the study of light and lighting as a phenomenon in architectural design.

Pietro Belluschi Distinguished Visiting Professor in Architectural Design.  Belluschi professors are prominent architects and architectural educators who will bring true distinction and unique opportunities to the University of Oregon.

Margo Grant Walsh Professorship in Interior Architecture.  This professorship supports a prominent visiting designer, architect, or educator to teach, lecture, and counsel future generations of design students.

Julie Neupert Stott Visiting Professor in Interior Architectural Design. This professorship supports an internationally recognized scholar and/or professional in the field of interior architecture to teach and lecture design students.
