Harvard’s Department of Landscape Architecture is actively seeking highly qualified individuals to offer graduate-level instruction and research with an emphasis on design for the public realm. A full-time tenure track position at the rank of associate professor is targeted, although the committee may also consider the appointment of a full professor with tenure.

The preferred candidate should bring a distinguished international reputation for their work in the discipline or profession of landscape architecture. They should have experience teaching at the graduate level in the discipline, and are expected to teach courses in design studios, lectures, seminars, and workshops in the context of an interdisciplinary design school with collaborative faculties in architecture, landscape architecture, and urban planning and design. Applicants should be prepared to advise thesis students and/or doctoral students.

We seek candidates with a focus on the design of public realm landscapes who are committed to advancing debates in environmental and social justice in the contemporary city. Candidates with expertise in landscape architecture and its intersection with urban design and contemporary public space design—including innovative infrastructure design, climate change, human health and design, engagement with underserved communities, urban recreational landscapes, waste sites and post-industrial landscapes—at all scales of human and non-human interactions. Candidates should see their work as expanding disciplinary boundaries and working across scales, embracing the multiple forces that contribute to the conceptualization of urban landscapes and their public dimensions. We are interested in candidates who have developed a research trajectory in public realm landscapes or with a history of consequential professional practice leading to a promising design research agenda.

The Department of Landscape Architecture educates landscape architects as committed protagonists in the urgent global demand to design a more equitable distribution of ecological, environmental, spatial, and economic resources. Candidates should regard this position as a robust platform for vocal citizenship, community engagement, and disciplinary leadership in the advancement of improved landscape futures across all regions of the world.
