Job Description

The School of Architecture

Instructor (Renewable per-annum) (#720)

Summary of Duties

The School of Architecture at Marywood University invites applications for a full-time, renewable per-annum position at the rank of Instructor beginning in the fall of 2020.  The successful candidate will demonstrate an ability to teach design studios with an iterative design process related to thoughtful, experimental, and tectonically sound architectural compositions.  Additionally, the candidate should present expertise in one or more of the following areas: innovative representation processes/techniques; and/or building structures. 

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.  Accordingly, candidates who draw productive, critical connections between architecture and interiors through an informed position on various forces that act upon architectural environments will be favorably considered.

Per-Annum faculty members are expected to engage in teaching, and service to the University.



Any of the following: Master of Architecture; post-professional graduate degree and professional undergraduate degrees in Architecture; allied discipline terminal degree with an architectural practice.

Work Experience Requirements

Experience in the areas of graphic representation (digital/mixed-media), or integrating structures into a conceptual design agenda
