Carleton University, Azrieli School of Architecture & Urbanism, Assistant Professor, Deadline: 01/06/2016

Reference: JOB37046
Application deadline: 7 weeks 6 days 9 hours 23 minutes

Faculty Positions -- CARLETON UNIVERSITY – Architecture and Urbanism

Azrieli School of Architecture & Urbanism (Architecture and Urbanism) - Assistant Professor – Closing Date for Applications: January 6, 2016

The Azrieli School of Architecture & Urbanism at Carleton University invites applications for two (2) tenure-track faculty positions in design at the rank of Assistant Professor. The appointments will begin on July 1, 2016.

Under the leadership of a newly appointed director, the School’s vision is to further its identity as an innovative laboratory where cities and buildings are the subject of integrated and forward-looking design research. With its location in the G20 capital city of Ottawa, with a growing expression of activism as a unique dimension of design education, and with a long tradition in the thoughtful and skillful making of built space, the Azrieli School is well positioned to enhance architecture’s contribution to critical debates around global urban issues. We expect that the new faculty appointments will be transformative in further defining and advancing these agendas.

We seek candidates who believe that architecture and urbanism, when mutually reinforced, become a means to validate the social, political, and ecological consequences of design.  We are looking for scholars, teachers, and practitioners who combine optimism with critical thinking, who are ready to test and challenge prevailing assumptions about urban futures and about architecture’s relationship to technology, and whose work demonstrates a potential for research collaborations with such diverse fields as urban geography, history, public health, public policy, and civil engineering.  Successful candidates should consider opportunities on how research and teaching in architecture and urbanism can engage professional and academic communities across the Carleton University campus, and in collaboration with other local and national institutions.

The Azrieli School of Architecture & Urbanism has a strong design core integrated with and supplemented by theoretical, conceptual, historical and technical courses and workshops. The School’s generous endowment affords opportunities to enrich our programs with significant support for students in the form of scholarships, study-abroad programs, and exceptional visiting critics from around the world. Our many resources include extensive wood and metal workshops, digital fabrication tools, video-editing facilities, and computer labs. The Master of Architecture program culminates in a thesis that integrates theoretical and design-based propositions.

Further information on the School is available at:

Qualified candidates must hold a professional (M.Arch or equivalent) degree in Architecture. In addition, at least one of the following is highly desirable:

  • Degree in Urban Planning and/or Urban Design
  • Ph.D. in Architecture or Planning (or be in the final stages of obtaining a Ph.D.)
  • Professional Registration in Architecture and/or Planning

Applicants must demonstrate experience in design studio teaching, a track record of scholarship in architecture at the urban scale, and engagement in emerging issues around urbanization across local, national, or international scales. A design portfolio demonstrating expertise, experience and research potential in these areas is required. In addition to established modes of scholarship, the committee will look favorably on candidates whose work includes innovative digital application, data-driven research, or real-time community engagement projects.

The successful candidates will be expected to teach design studios as well as undergraduate and graduate lecture classes and seminars, to develop a program of externally funded and high quality research at the intersection of architecture and urbanism, and to contribute to the academic life and culture of the Azrieli School.

Applications must include a curriculum vitae, cover letter, teaching dossier, statement outlining current and future research interests, and names and contact information (including e-mail addresses) of three references.  The deadline for applications is January 6, 2016.
