The College of Design, Architecture, Art, and Planning (DAAP) at the University of Cincinnati invites applications for adjunct architecture and interior design faculty positions at any rank in the top-ranked School of Architecture and Interior Design (SAID).
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), post-professional degrees in each discipline (MS Arch and M.IntD) and the Ph.D. degree in Architecture. The core mission of the profession programs at SAID is to prepare students for critical engagement with practice. The foundation of all of the studio programs at SAID remains a liberal arts education, which provides a broad basis for understanding the role of architecture within a cultural and historical context; the professional curricula are 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).
Adjuncts teaching in the studio based programs are expected to deliver professional knowledge to our students in a team setting, while working closely with students on a one-to-one basis in the studio setting. Most studio faculty will teach in the cross-disciplinary foundation program, teaching introductory courses such as SAID1001, SAID1002, or SAID2001. At times, faculty may be sought for upper-division undergraduate and graduate studios. Faculty may be sought for a limited number of subject-area support courses (typically in construction technology, building systems, architectural history/theory and historic preservation, and professional practice) as required by the needs of the School administration.
MINIMUM QUALIFICATIONS: Successful applicants will have a professional degree in architecture (B.Arch or M.Arch or D.Des) or interior design (BSID or M.ID); rank of appointment will be conferred based on prior teaching and professional experience. All adjunct faculty report to the School Director.
**Please note that this is a pooled posting, applications are being accepted on a continuous basis to be included in the general pool of candidates from which part-time faculty are selected.
