The Eskenazi School of Art, Architecture and Design (https://eskenazi.indiana.edu/) is seeking a dynamic and enthusiastic colleague for a position in the J. Irwin Miller Master of Architecture Program (https://architecture.indiana.edu/) as a visiting full-time Assistant/Associate Professor with a focus primarily in architectural design and secondarily in urban design. The primary location of this position is Columbus, IN. 

The Eskenazi School (https://soaad.indiana.edu/) is dedicated to developing a faculty body composed of diverse scholars and practitioners. We seek a forward-thinking colleague who wishes to be part of an innovative program that was founded only three years ago. Our unique approach to architectural education hinges on the convergence of architecture, design, and studio art.

We are looking for candidates who have performed valuable work in architecture and urban design, are interested in teaching within a program that emphasizes the intersection of architecture and studio art, have demonstrated the capacity to collaborate with colleagues from a broad range of disciplines, and have taught diverse populations of students.

We are especially interested in candidates who possess expertise in the relationship between architectural design and urban form. This expertise could stem, for example, from experience with architectural projects sited in urban contexts, training and/or experience in urban design, or knowledge of urban histories and theories.

A strong candidate will have a successful track record of working with students, faculty, administration, and communities beyond the walls of an educational institution.

The expected start date for this position is August 1, 2022. 

Position Responsibilities include, but are not limited to:

  • Teaching architectural design studios within the M.Arch. Program as well as teaching a seminar about urban form, the interrelationship between architecture and urbanism, and the history of cities.
  • Assisting in the preparation of documents required for the NAAB accreditation process, coordinating with the Director, Assistant Director, faculty, and staff in providing all required documents related to courses that were taught
  • Working in collaboration with the Community Outreach Coordinator to identify and develop studio projects for student and community engagement in the first and second years of the program
  • Collaborating with the Shop Coordinator to develop projects and building assignments that contribute to the curricular model of the program
  • Advising the Director on the selection of visiting critics for interim and final reviews
  • Collaborating with faculty to exhibit student work in the gallery as part of end-of-year exhibitions
  • Successful candidates will receive benefits in addition to salary, including the ability to apply for travel grants from Indiana University

Salary commensurate with experience. The expected start date for this position is August 1, 2022.
