About This Role:

Design | Fabrication

The Department of Architecture at Kansas State University invites applications for a tenure-track faculty position beginning August 2022. The appointment will be at the rank of assistant professor and salary will be commensurate with the candidate's qualifications. The successful candidate will teach two courses per semester - an architectural design studio and either a required lecture or elective seminar in her or his area of expertise.

The successful candidate will demonstrate interest and ability to teach architectural design studios across the curriculum. Entry-level studios require the ability to teach fundamental design skills, including spatial and formal composition, graphics, and modeling techniques, while upper-level studios require the ability to teach the design and technical skills necessary to resolve and document architectural intent from the urban scale to the detail. Demonstrated excellence in teaching architectural design studios and the capability of serving in a design studio leadership role are preferred.

THINK.DESIGN.MAKE. - our design-oriented program focuses on those aspects that lend a sense of built reality to an architectural idea. In support of this focus, fabrication has long been a part of our program and our capabilities continue to expand. We completed an extensive renovation of our facility in 2017, including a 20,000 square foot fabrication shop for woodwork and metalwork with a 3-axis CNC milling machine and a 3-axis CNC plasma cutter, a 3D printing lab, and a 6,000 square foot off-campus shop space for design-build projects.

The successful candidate will demonstrate expertise in fabrication and the capability of integrating these tools and techniques into their design studio and seminar teaching. Demonstrated proficiency in architectural fabrication is preferred. The candidate will demonstrate interest and ability to engage in research/creative activity related to their area of expertise. Demonstrated ability to procure external funding in support of applied research/creative activity is preferred.
