The School of Architecture in the College of Arts, Media and Design invites applications and nominations for a tenure-on-entry full or associate professor or tenure-track assistant professor position in architectural design with a specialization in data-driven urbanism and information design. We seek candidates with a national or international record of excellence in the creative practice, innovative research, substantive scholarship and effective teaching in one or more of, and not limited to, the following interdisciplinary areas: digital mapping; GIS mapping; advanced visualization techniques; digital communication; interactive media; and “big data.” Candidates should have a strong interest in collaborative work in these dynamic and burgeoning fields of practice, and could be considered for joint positions with other academic disciplines within the College and the University, particularly in the Department of Art + Design’s new Master of Information Design and Visualization degree program.
The School of Architecture has three distinct advantages. One, the faculty conducts courses of study in a strong diversity of practices, including architectural design, history and professional practice, urban landscape and sustainable coastal environments, market-driven building types, and building technology and performance. Two, we are located within a major private global research university and a leader in worldwide experiential learning, urban engagement and interdisciplinary research. Also, the College has a unique combination of disciplines, including Architecture, Art + Design, Game Design, Communication Studies, Journalism, Media and Screen Studies, Music, and Theatre. Three, we are in Boston, a thriving urban center of culture and innovation with extensive global connections. See: www.northeastern.edu/camd
