JOB TITLE: Tenure Track Faculty
POSITION NUMBER: AE9934
HIRING SUPERVISOR: College Dean
DIVISION: College of Architecture and Design
DEPARTMENT: College of Architecture and Design
JOB DUTIES: Lawrence Technological University is a private educational institution that focuses on technology and the professions. We aim to be an agile and entrepreneurial technology incubator that incorporates educational objectives into the pursuit of creative and innovative ideas across disciplines. Architecture is a central player in the synthesis of these activities; with this in mind, we seek exceptional collaborators to help realize the goals of the University and the College of Architecture and Design. We are looking for outstanding candidates to fill a tenure-track or tenured faculty position in the Architecture program. The appointee will join a strong, collaborative group of teaching and applied-research faculty to continue to develop pedagogical innovations in architectural design and practice. The appointment will commence in August 2021.
The Master of Architectural Engineering (MSArE) is a five year, integrated bachelors-masters program within the Department of Civil and Architectural Engineering. The program is ABET accredited. Lawrence Tech is strategically located in the largest engineering market in Michigan, with opportunities for faculty involvement with major projects, firms and organizations.
The desired candidate should have a strong commitment to teaching and the ability to attract, develop, and sustain a strong externally funded research program. In addition to teaching undergraduate and graduate courses in architectural engineering, other responsibilities include service to the University and graduate/undergraduate student advising. The candidate is expected to have a strong teaching background with a teaching philosophy that matches well with the theory and practice philosophy of the University.
QUALIFICATIONS: Candidates must hold a terminal degree in architecture from an accredited institution. Professional registration is desirable but not essential. Successful candidates will have a record of peer-reviewed scholarly and /or creative work and a clear research or practice trajectory. The field of expertise is open, but the ideal candidate will have experience in secondary areas of knowledge such as digital design, production techniques (analog, CNC, robotic), design implications of society and race, or ecological/sustainable concerns. We seek candidates with future-focused approaches to research methods or studio-based design pedagogy. Experience in cross-disciplinary opportunities linking architectural knowledge to parallel design disciplines such as interior design, industrial and transportation design, game art, or graphic design is preferred.
We are looking for teachers and scholars with strong communication skills and a willingness to become actively involved in the functioning of the department, including academic advising, curriculum development, program assessment, and recruitment. Preference will be given to candidates demonstrating a combination of design studio and lecture/seminar-based teaching experience at the college level, and the ability to work with and promote a diverse student body.
Lawrence Technological University (LTU) conducts pre-employment screening on initial candidates for all positions, which may include but is not limited to, a criminal background check, verification of academic credentials, license, certifications, and/or verification of work history.
