Non-Tenure Track Faculty Position - School of Architecture

Summary of Duties

The School of Architecture at Marywood University invites applications for a full-time, non-tenure-track faculty position (one-year, renewable) at the rank of Instructor beginning in the fall of 2017. The successful candidate will teach one studio and up to two non-studio courses per semester in one or more of the following areas: environmental systems, energy and building performance, and/or sustainable building strategies. Candidates who can draw 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. All full-time faculty members are expected to establish a teaching agenda and engage in service to the School of Architecture.


As a professional school in a liberal arts university, our 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 - 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 School’s 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.


  • Educational:

    Minimum qualifications for the position: Masters of Architecture or post-professional graduate degree in Architecture and/or a terminal graduate degree in interior architecture/design or an allied design discipline.  Additional preferred qualifications: expertise in the areas of environmental systems, energy and building performance, and/or sustainable building strategies as demonstrated though previous teaching experience, specialized graduate degree, or professional experience.

How to Apply

All submissions must be submitted electronically. Review of applications will begin March 15, 2017 and continue until the position is filled. Applicants should send: letter of application stating teaching/research interests; Curriculum Vitae; portfolio of design work and student work completed under their direction, if available; and three references to:
