Assistant Professor, Urban Design (2 positions)
College of Architecture, Planning, and Landscape Architecture
The University of Arizona
The College of Architecture, Planning, and Landscape Architecture (CAPLA) is an international leader in sustainable design and planning for arid regions, advancing The University of Arizona as a premier institution of environmental sustainability, global impact, and regional community engagement. CAPLA is comprised of two academic departments – The School of Architecture and The School of Landscape Architecture and Planning – and the College’s community outreach unit, The Drachman Institute. CAPLA offers four accredited degrees, B.Architecture, M.Architecture, M.Landscape Architecture, and MS.Planning; one post-professional degree, MS.Architecture; an undergraduate degree, BS.Sustainable Built Environments; and two graduate interdisciplinary programs, Master of Real Estate Development and Certificate in Heritage Conservation.
As a professional college, CAPLA is dedicated to educating the next generation architects, landscape architects, and planners to be prepared for professional practice in the global workplace. The College develops design professionals and scholars with a sensibility honed in the conditions of an extreme climate on a major international border committed to ethically, technically, and socially responsible critical practice in the contemporary world. CAPLA is internationally recognized for its current interdisciplinary research in water, energy, habitat, and heritage, while investing in emerging focus areas of climate, health, transit, and real estate development. CAPLA faculty, staff, and students integrate community outreach in teaching, research, and service activities whose impact is seen locally, nationally, and internationally while embracing the University’s land grant mission.
Located in one of the oldest continuously inhabited cities in the United States, Tucson is transitioning from a low-density, automobile-oriented city into a post-carbon one. Within this context, the College has contributed to the region’s transformation, bringing an appreciation for the history and culture of the region to a pressing need for sustainable practices and a higher quality of urban life. For decades, the College’s students and faculty have worked across disciplines to partner with governmental, civic, and private entities to assess, analyze, advance best practices, and implement proposals for an increasingly urbanizing region. Tucson provides a rich and vibrant learning laboratory for innovations in urban ecosystems, sustainable urban design, transit-oriented development, and public-private partnerships, especially now with the completion of the first leg of Tucson’s new modern streetcar, linking the downtown and the University. In the heart of downtown Tucson, CAPLA spearheaded the establishment of University of Arizona Downtown (UAD) housing an interdisciplinary urban design studio, classrooms, as well as Drachman Institute’s Community Outreach Partnership Center and Sustainable City Project offices.
Building on this legacy of leadership, CAPLA invites applications for two tenure-track positions in urban design with responsibilities for interdisciplinary teaching, funded research, and community outreach. These complementary positions – one based in the School of Architecture and one in the School of Landscape Architecture and Planning – are nine-month academic year appointments that begin Fall 2015.
Required qualifications, reflecting anticipated duties, for these two complementary positions include:
