The College of Design, Architecture, Art, and Planning (DAAP) at the University of Cincinnati invites applications for an architecture faculty position in the top-ranked School of Architecture and Interior (SAID) at the rank of tenure-track Assistant Professor.


The College of DAAP has as its primary mission the creation of a better cultural and design environment.


The core mission of the Architecture Program at the School of Architecture and Interior Design is to prepare students for critical engagement with practice. The program promotes leadership, collaboration, intellectual depth, flexibility, and teamwork. The foundation of architecture education at UC remains a liberal arts education, which provides a broad basis for understanding the role of architecture within a cultural and historical context; and a professional curriculum that is enriched with elective seminars, lectures and design studios that provide opportunities to engage in travel/study programs, experimental projects, and service-learning. Students alternate these more traditional academic experiences with periods of professional experience through our landmark cooperative education program (co-op). 


The School of Architecture and Interior Design (SAID) confers an accredited first professional graduate degree in Architecture (M Arch), an accredited professional degree in Interior Design (BSID), an undergraduate degree in Architecture (BS Arch), a post-professional degree (MS Arch) and Ph.D. degree in Architecture. There are approximately 688 students in the School and 25 full-time faculty. SAID’s top-ranked professional degree programs, as well as the BS Arch degree program, include a renowned cooperative education program (Co-op) that places students in professional work environments as part of the curriculum. SAID’s Co-op network includes over 500 firms across the globe.


Responsibilities: Teaching responsibilities include design studios at the undergraduate or graduate level that focus on parametric design and growth modelling. Candidates will be expected to integrate their research work in teaching. In addition to teaching in a diverse academic environment, faculty responsibilities include research, graduate thesis advising, as well as service to the department, the college, the university, and the greater community.


Minimum Qualifications:   Applicants must hold a Master’s degree in architecture, one year of academic teaching experience in design studios at the university level, and at least five years of professional experience in architecture design.


Review of applications will begin on January 9, 2017 and the search will remain open until an appointment is made. Applicants should refer to the DAAP web site ( to learn more about SAID, DAAP and UC.
