Applications for the School of Architecture Tenure Track Faculty search are currently closed.
If your creative work is breaking new ground, you will find an encouraging, stimulating environment within our dynamic community. Our school is a team of dedicated educators, designers, researchers, practitioners, and interdisciplinary collaborators. Faculty members teach studios and/or coursework appropriate to their specialization(s) across the School’s many programs, including the B.Arch, M.Arch, post-professional Master's (both MS and studio-based), and the doctoral programs.
Our student body totals 370 undergraduate and graduate students, and is situated within the College of Fine Arts, alongside the Schools of Art, Design, Drama, and Music. Our university is classified as a "R1: Doctoral University – Highest Research Activity" institution. As such, a wide range of transdisciplinary educational and research opportunities can be created at the school, college, and/or university levels.
Our school philosophy is to provide deep immersion in the discipline of architecture, intensified by a university culture of interdisciplinary innovation and creative inquiry. Our undergraduate and graduate degree programs prepare students to be excellent, discipline-defining design-thinkers in diverse global contexts. We believe that architectural excellence demands both rigorous training in fundamentals and the development of unique expertise – whether the sciences, the humanities, engineering, or computation. Though each of our students graduate with intensive architecture knowledge, no two graduates leave with the same education.
Our programs take advantage of:
Our position within one of the world’s leading research and entrepreneurship institutions at the interdisciplinary intersection of technology, the arts, and the humanities;
The context of our dynamic, post-industrial city of Pittsburgh as a laboratory for inquiry and action.
Tenure track faculty are typically assigned four responsibilities per year that complement their unique abilities – teaching studios at the undergraduate and graduate levels, teaching courses at the undergraduate and graduate levels, advising a cohort of PhD students, directing a center, directing a lab or funded research.
We seek candidates who demonstrate the potential to be leaders in our programs through successful external fundraising and outstanding advising, and/or those who demonstrate the ability to positively impact the profession.
