I. Architectural Design

Candidates should demonstrate excellence in architectural design with a strong record or promise of significant creative achievement in the field through design work, design inquiry, professional practice, or a combination thereof with an emphasis on building culture and technology: sustainability; computational methodologies; contemporary culture and theory; design, technology and media; and innovation in structure and material assemblies. Special emphasis will be given to candidates with a record of scholarship, research and practice. Candidates with experience in the global arena that have a distinct understanding of the geographic dimensions of architecture as well as urban form and design will be given special consideration. These are full-time tenure track positions in architectural design at the level of assistant or associate professor, commensurate with the candidate’s qualifications. A professional Master degree in Architecture is required and teaching experience in a school of architecture will be valued. The candidate will be expected to advise undergraduate and graduate students, develop and participate in teaching subjects of architectural design as well as other subjects at all levels, and to serve as a productive member of the SUTD community.

II. Building Technology

Candidates will be assessed primarily on the record and promise of exemplary building technology research and teaching. Also important will be the degree to which a candidate can collaborate in research and teaching with others in diverse scientific, engineering and design disciplines. SUTD seeks individuals who are committed to advancing knowledge that will enhance the ability of designers and engineers to bring about a future sustainable built environment. Energy in buildings, advanced and high performance building systems, or daylighting and acoustics are areas of interest for this position. Other areas of expertise in building technologies will also be considered. The candidate’s research agenda may be limited to the scale of buildings or extend more broadly to include research of urban resource dynamics and environmental and ecological issues at the metropolitan and regional scale. Close collaboration with the architectural design faculty will facilitate the integration of building technology in the most creative, expansive and intellectually important manner. These are full-time tenure track positions in Building Technology at the level of assistant or associate professor, commensurate with the candidate’s qualifications. A doctoral degree is preferred but not required, while teaching experience in a school of architecture or engineering will be valued. The candidate will be expected to advise undergraduate and graduate students, participate in teaching subjects of building technology as well as other subjects at the undergraduate and graduate level, and to serve as a productive member of the SUTD community.

III. Computation

Singapore University of Technology and Design seeks tenure track candidates interested in teaching and research involving digital technologies for the Architecture and Sustainable Design pillar of SUTD. We seek faculty candidates well versed in the virtual and physical design space in every facet of an architecture curriculum. We seek a candidate interested in exploring research questions broadly in areas of parametric design, simulation, fabrication and performance-based design. The candidate must be able to instruct students in application based software and theory in a specified area. Most important we seek leadership from creative faculty interested in advancing the field. These are full-time tenure track positions in Architecture Computation at the level of assistant or associate professor, commensurate with the candidate’s qualifications. The candidate will be expected to advise undergraduate and graduate students, participate in teaching subjects of computation and design as well as other subjects at the undergraduate and graduate level, and serve as a productive member of the SUTD community.

IV. Theory and Culture

Candidates are expected to demonstrate a proven record of scholarship and teaching in topics of the history, theory and culture of architecture. Their work should investigate ways in which architecture reveals and reflects cultural, historic and socioeconomic dynamics at a variety of spatial and temporal scales. In their teaching, they should be able to show how architectural production is linked to shifts in technological paradigms, ideological world-views, societal beliefs and artistic and creative enterprises. Candidates will be expected to have a strong awareness of global history and/or how manifestations of technology and science affect design and society. Teaching responsibilities will include introductory subjects on the history and theory of architecture as well as advanced classes on particular topics of interest. The candidate will be expected to advise undergraduate and graduate students, participate in teaching subjects of architectural theory and culture as well as other subjects at the undergraduate and graduate level, and serve as a productive member of the SUTD community. These are full-time tenure track positions in Architecture Theory and Culture at the level of assistant or associate professor, commensurate with the candidate’s qualifications.
