New Faculty Openings for Fall 2010!

The Judson University School of Art, Design, and Architecture invites applications for two full-time, tenure track faculty positions in architecture, beginning in Fall 2010. Shouldering specific responsibilities for design studio education, curriculum development, and contributing individual expertise and area of specialty, the successful candidates will join a vibrant community of scholars and practitioners in the context of a private Christian University. The architecture program is professionally distinguished by growing expertise in green design and sustainable practices, and traditional architecture and urbanism.

The thirteen-year-old program continues to build upon successful initial accreditation with the NAAB in 2004, and is enriching its already strong program. The program is nationally distinctive and its approach can be summarized best as: 1) a professional education in the context of a liberal arts undergraduate institution which includes theological education; 2) an innovative curricular structure which embeds a full year of practice in the midst of a “hybrid” 4+2 M.Arch. curriculum; 3) a three-year-old world class mixed-mode naturally ventilated and exceptionally daylit LEED gold learning center, surrounded by a fen-inspired landscape architecture of bioswales, native prairie and habitat restoration; and 4) small student to faculty ratios, prioritizing teaching and interpersonal excellence.

Qualifications:

Applicants must hold a M.Arch. degree and must have a demonstrated record of excellence in design practice and/or education and must be licensed in the US, internationally licensed, or license eligible. Special consideration will be given to candidates who hold additional credentials toward further diversifying and deepening the expertise of the faculty body and school. We seek continued enrichment of an already diverse faculty, within the context of its unique mission.

Salary/Benefits:  Salary is dependent on qualifications, education, and work experience.

Contact Information:

(1) Curriculum vitae w/a list of three references with telephone, mailing, and email addresses;
