Notice of Teaching Fellow Position


UCLA Architecture & Urban Design

The Department of Architecture and Urban Design at UCLA is pleased to announce an open invitation to apply for a newly established 9-month teaching fellowship without tenure.  This full time position offers an emerging designer the exciting opportunity to advance their individual research interests through teaching in both studio and seminar courses.  The department is particularly interested in supporting agendas that may not be currently present within the program but that show promise in radicalizing the future of the field.  In addition to teaching two design studios or seminars in our undergraduate and graduate programs, the fellowship offers the opportunity to present one public lecture, support for a research related project and the opportunity to work with a faculty comprised of some of the world’s most significant architects and critics.  With a competitive salary of $50-$60K plus benefits, this fellowship intends to support emerging figures who are committed to expanding the culture of debate and inquiry in architecture and design.   
Candidates are requested to furnish a letter of intent with curriculum vitae, one or two examples of design work, with a description of each project (non-returnable), and the names, phone numbers, mail and e-mail addresses of three references able to provide a knowledgeable evaluation of the applicant’s qualifications. Please do not send additional support materials until they are requested. Application deadline is March 30, 2012 or until filled.
If selected as finalists, candidates should also be prepared to participate in formal interviews and to conduct a mini-presentation to the hiring committee around mid April  
Please submit your materials to the attention of the Fellowship Hiring Committee, UCLA Department of Architecture & Urban Design, 1317 Perloff Hall, Los Angeles, CA  90095-1467.  Review of applications will take place in early April with interviews scheduled later during that same month.
