The School of Architecture + Art (SoA+A) at Norwich University invites applications for a tenure-track Assistant Professor of Architecture. We are a small, collegial faculty dedicated to edifying “citizen architects” and reinforcing the university’s commitment to “service before self”. We foster an ethos of climate responsibility, and design as social action throughout the curriculum. Our students and faculty benefit from interdisciplinary opportunities within the College of Professional Schools, including the nationally recognized Center for Global Resilience and Security, and the Design + Build Collaborative, which addresses the needs of Vermont communities and includes the design and construction of affordable housing. Our place-based culture of experiential learning is rooted in rural Vermont and broadened by CityLAB:Berlin, a satellite campus of Norwich University in Germany. The College also includes schools of Business; Cybersecurity, Data Science, and Computing; Engineering; and Nursing.   


The preferred applicant will have primary expertise in building-systems design and integration with the ability to teach courses in subjects like materials and methods, active building systems, and project delivery.

The preferred candidate must have a terminal degree in architecture or a related discipline, specific expertise in building-systems design and integration, strong communication skills, full- or part-time teaching experience as a primary instructor at the university level and a strong commitment to scholarship and advising. Additionally, the school seeks individuals who have literacy and experience with contemporary digital design and fabrication tools, an interest in design build, and a desire to play an active role in the day-to-day life and evolution of the school’s program and design culture.
