Job Description:

 
Design / Digital Technology / Digital Fabrication
The successful candidate will demonstrate interest and ability to teach architectural design studios across the curriculum. Entry-level studios require the ability to teach fundamental design skills, including spatial and formal composition, graphics, and modeling techniques, while upper-level studios require the ability to teach the design and technical skills necessary to resolve and document architectural intent from the urban scale to the detail. Demonstrated excellence in teaching architectural design studios and the capability of serving in a design studio leadership role are preferred.
 
The successful candidate will demonstrate proficiency in the methods and software introduced in the department's established digital technology course sequence, which builds students' digital design and visualization skills via the Adobe Creative Suite, Revit, Rhino, 3ds Max, and Grasshopper. In addition, they will demonstrate interest and ability in teaching courses within this sequence and in integrating this technology into their design studio teaching. They will also demonstrate interest and ability to develop and teach seminars in digital technology and/or digital fabrication, and this specialization will form the core of their scholarly/creative agenda.
 
Our design-oriented program is grounded in the 'making' of architecture. We focus on those aspects that lend a sense of built reality to an architectural idea. In support of this focus, we recently completed an extensive renovation of our facility, which now includes a 20,000 square foot fabrication shop for woodwork, metalwork, and CNC fabrication: the latter including multiple 3-axis CNC milling machines and a 3-axis CNC plasma cutter. Preferably, the successful candidate will demonstrate proficiency in digital fabrication and the capability of integrating these tools and techniques into their design studio teaching.
