Job Title: Lecturer in Architecture
Position #00688962 – Requisition #30843

Job Summary:

This posting establishes a pool of candidates to fill temporary, non-tenure-track lecturer positions in Architecture. This posting does not necessarily reflect a current, open position. Appointments will be part-time (less than 50%) and will be made semester-by-semester, as teaching needs arise. This temporary Lecturer pool is anticipated to remain continuously active through May 2024, at which point, all applications will be cleared from the pool. Applicants will be welcome to apply to future pools after that date.

The Department of Architecture in the College of Architecture and Planning at the University of Colorado Denver is seeking a pool of Lecturers from which future appointments will be made. Lecturers selected from this pool will teach six-credit-hour design studios in the Department of Architecture’s undergraduate and/or graduate programs. These may include lectures/studios in all teaching modes (in-person, hybrid, online, remote).

Lecturers that are hired to teach design studios are expected to have expertise and experience in architectural design. This includes knowledge of different design paradigms, design skills, and approaches to project design. A successful applicant must be able to develop and manage student projects through constructive criticism, the use of technologies ranging from technical drafting to advanced digital design tools and visualization software. If applying to a non-studio course the applicant must possess and be able to demonstrate expertise in the area of focus.

If an applicant has an area of expertise other than or in addition to a design studio and would like to be considered to teach a three-credit-hour course, the applicant should highlight this interest in a cover letter.
