University of Wisconsin - Milwaukee

Position Number: 02223122

Introduction (Description of School/College/Dept/Program)
The Department of Architecture is part of the School of Architecture & Urban Planning (SARUP) at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. As Wisconsin’s only accredited school of Architecture, SARUP celebrated its 50th anniversary year in 2019, including its recognition as a Center for Excellence in the UW System. SARUP is home to two significant international design awards, the Marcus Prize and the Urban Edge Award. Both highlight SARUP’s commitment to Milwaukee and urbanism by bringing international talent into studios. SARUP also offers a unique range of externally funded studios, building long-term relationships with regional industrial and institutional partners. In addition to many community-based projects, SARUP also hosts the Mobile Design Box, an off-campus community engagement space available to SARUP faculty. The Department of Architecture offers BSAS, M. Arch., M.S. and Ph.D. degree programs and faculty are encouraged to teach at all levels. A new 30 credit Master of Urban Design has started enrolling students in fall 2021.
Located on Lake Michigan, Milwaukee is a city of diverse, walkable and livable neighborhoods. Milwaukee’s lively arts and cultural scene, combined with its Great Lakes and river watershed ecology, historic fabric, and mix of cultures, offers many avenues for research and design inspiration.

Job Summary
The University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee School of Architecture & Urban Planning (SARUP) is offering a one-year fellowship to support a scholar(s) whose work focuses on matters of contemporary urgency. These could include equity in the built environment, environmental justice, collaborative modes of practice, the role of inclusive architecture education, relationships between identity and design, investigation into climate change mitigation connected to social and environmental justice, and other topics.

Given the unique pressures of this time, both in the wider discipline and in higher education, SARUP is particularly (but not exclusively) interested in proposals that investigate the relationship of the fellow's practice to local or regional aspects of Milwaukee life, culture and urbanism. The fellow in architectural activism can expect the support of SARUP colleagues to facilitate connections to organizations and individuals who will amplify avenues of research opportunity even within a short period of residency.

SARUP acknowledges the historic inequities in academia, architecture and urban planning that have made access to robust and sustainable research careers unattainable for many people from minoritized backgrounds. To open this fellowship to scholars whose experience may have been hindered by a lack of resources, tokenization of focus area and/or invisible labors of service often required of minoritized people, SARUP offers the opportunity to co-teach in the architectural core curriculum, a dedicated teaching + research mentor, and a student research assistant for the duration of the fellowship (contingent on available funding).

Fellows who may be Innovative and emerging designers, architecture practitioners, and scholars are required to conduct design research and to participate in the SARUP community through the teaching of studios and seminars. Each 9-month fellowship (with institutional support, including access to the library and facilities, extended through the summer) includes teaching responsibilities that focus on the core studio curriculum at the undergraduate or graduate levels, and equally important, an elective studio and seminar driven by the fellow's research agenda. At the culmination of the fellowship term and with the support of a stipend, fellows are expected to complete a final project that can be disseminated at a national level. Fellowship recipients will be expected to deliver a lecture on the subject of their fellowship research in the SARUP Guest Lecture Series, disseminate the research through peer-reviewed journals, conferences and other written media, and exhibit related work in SARUP's gallery.

The Department of Architecture is committed to creating a more inclusive and diverse institution and seeks candidates with demonstrated potential and research breadth, including those from diverse racial, ethnic, gender, historically underrepresented, differently abled, and disadvantaged backgrounds to contribute positively to its diverse community..
