School of Architecture

Assistant Professor/Full-Time, Tenure-Track Faculty Position

Summary of Duties

The School of Architecture at Marywood University invites applications for a full-time, tenure-track faculty position beginning in the fall of 2018. We seek individuals with the ability to engage students in an iterative design process related to integrative building technologies in service of architectural compositions that are thoughtful, experimental, and tectonically sound.

The successful candidate should have specific interest in the capacity of building technologies and systems to inform spatial and experiential agendas for architectural design.  Expertise in one or more of the following areas is preferred: environmental systems, structural systems, or energy and building performance. Candidates who draw productive critical connections between architecture and interiors and who hold an informed position on the broad cultural and technological forces that act upon and constitute architectural environments will be favorably considered. 

As a professional school in a liberal arts university, our accredited architecture and interior architecture programs set a rigorous studio-based curriculum within an educational context that encourages critical inquiry into the built environment. From interior objects to urban environments, this inquiry informs a disciplined practice as the means by which we engage the world at a range of scales with conceptual and formal clarity, disciplinary consciousness, social agency, and material speculation. This practice conditions the Architecture and Interior Architecture programs through shared courses and faculty that seek to uncover broad overlaps, points of transfer, common values, and shared skill-sets between and among the two disciplines.

All tenure-track faculty members are expected to establish and engage in a teaching agenda, scholarly agenda, and service to the School of Architecture, University and broader community.


  • Educational:

    Required Qualifications: Master of Architecture, or post-professional graduate degree in architecture, or a terminal graduate degree in interior architecture/design or in an allied design discipline.  Preferred Qualifications: Experience in the area of environmental systems, structural systems, or energy and building performance as demonstrated by previous specialized teaching, practice, or advanced studies.
