About the Opportunity 

The School of Architecture in the College of Arts, Media, and Design invites applications for a full-time non-tenure track Teaching Professor in Landscape Architecture at the rank of Assistant or Associate, with a focus on teaching fundamental site design, landform and grading, and representation. This position will be fully located on the Boston campus of Northeastern University. We seek an innovative colleague eager to contribute to the growth and creative evolution of our landscape architecture program.  

 
Responsibilities 

The full-time faculty member will be expected to teach undergraduate landscape architecture design studios and seminars at multiple levels, from introductory to advanced. In the case of advanced studios and seminars, we seek a faculty member that can build upon their rich research or creative professional practice, as well as their local and/or global experiences.

A full course load for this position is three courses per fall and spring semesters. Class formats may range between design studios, workshop courses, seminars and/or lectures. In addition to teaching, the faculty member will be expected to develop, maintain, and coordinate curricular initiatives as we begin the process of accrediting our Bachelor of Landscape Architecture program.

Rank as an Assistant or Associate teaching professor will be assessed in consideration of the candidate’s previous teaching experience and creative practice and/or research experience. In addition to teaching, all full-time faculty are expected to contribute to the cultural life and function of the program through service commitments on committees, special projects, and student advising and engagement activities. These service roles are determined based on alignments with candidate’s past experiences and profiles in teaching research and creative practice.

Qualifications 

Candidates must have at minimum a terminal professional degree in landscape architecture (MLA) and studio teaching experience.

Applicants should submit a cover letter indicating their interest in the position and relevant experience; a curriculum vitae; and names of three references who will not be contacted unless the candidate is selected for a short list. Candidates selected for the short list will be contacted for additional materials including, but not limited to, teaching and creative practice portfolios, as well as additional statements.
