One or more assistant or associate professor positions are available beginning in academic year 2015-2016 for persons qualified to offer graduate-level instruction in environmental technologies, materials, sustainable design, building construction, or computation and visualization for professional, post-professional, and doctoral candidates at the GSD. Placed in the Department of Architecture, the successful candidate will have the interest and ability to address general issues of design of the built environment as well as his/her specialized field across all the programs at the GSD.  We are particularly interested in individuals who have the capacity to bridge between technology and the design culture.

Candidates in the area of building construction should have a background in construction technologies or building structures, with a strong interest in material technologies. Preferred candidates should have a particular strength in areas such as advanced and generative structural design, digital fabrication technology, or smart materials and intelligent buildings

Candidates in the area of environmental technologies should be familiar with all aspects of sustainability in design, and be able to interact with related disciplines such as ecology, engineering, public health, and public policy. Preferred candidates should have a particular strength in an area (e.g., energy, ventilation) and proficiency in advanced simulation methods.

Professor, Associate Professor, or Assistant Professor of Urban Design

A faculty position for a distinguished scholar and/or practitioner (at the full professor level), or a candidate with superior attainment or strong promise (at the associate or assistant professor levels)  is available in the Department of Urban Planning and Design at Harvard University’s Graduate School of Design (GSD). We are particularly interested in candidates who are committed to innovative thinking about topics that relate to contemporary urbanization and the city, and who are willing to engage in constructive dialogue not just with urban planners but also with colleagues in all disciplines at the GSD, as well as across the university.

The successful candidate will be expected to engage in conceptualizing and developing cross-disciplinary research and academic initiatives that bear on the possibilities for reshaping contemporary urban environments, as produced from both within and outside a studio setting. In addition to the standard expectation that candidates will show demonstrated excellence in the application of design skills to the built environment, we seek applicants with a capacity to promote and reflect upon some of the most pressing socio-spatial challenges of our times (climate change and the environmental impacts of urbanization, transformations in the nature of work, increasing economic and social inequality, global and local patterns of displacement, etc.). In addition, we seek individuals willing to push the methodological boundaries of the discipline through such applications as digital design platforms, parametric design, emerging smart technologies, use of narratives or other unorthodox modes of representation, and so on. Finally, we will prioritize candidates whose epistemic repertoire includes a sensitivity to history, to the peculiarities of place, and to the social implications of design practice, as well as those who show a willingness to use their design research to explore new connections with the fields of engineering and the humanities or social sciences.

Candidates should have significant experience in integrating studio or classroom teaching with applied research, and hold an advanced degree in urban design, architecture, landscape architecture, and/or other fields concerned with cities and urbanization.  While all candidates with significant scholarly or professional achievement in a broad range of fields related to cities and urbanization will be considered, a background of commitment to the design of exemplary physical environments should be demonstrated through research and/or practice, and peer review.

This appointment is expected to be a full-time position at the level of professor, associate professor, or assistant professor. We will also consider applications for part-time positions at all ranks (assistant, associate, or professor in practice). Part-time positions are normally half-time and require the maintenance of an active outside practice or research activities.

To apply, candidates should upload a one page letter of intent, a current and thorough c.v. of academic and professional activities, a list of 6-8 references, and a maximum of 4 one-sided 8.5” x 11” pages of selected design work (if collaborations, then applicant’s role should be clearly stated project by project).

Candidates should Apply Here through the Harvard Academic Recruiting Information eSystem. Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis starting on October 1, 2016.
