Harvard University Graduate School of Design is looking for a Professor of Landscape Architecture to join its team in Cambridge, USA.
The Department of Landscape Architecture seeks a distinguished scholar and/or practitioner at the assistant/associate professor (tenure track) or full professor (tenured) level in landscape architecture design and planning. The search is open to candidates who pursue a wide variety of landscape architectural subjects, such as territorial systems and their organization, rural landscapes, and their technologies (large-scale forestry, urban forestry, agronomy, engineering, energy), infrastructure, conservation, and stewardship. The most current expertise in climate adaptation and climate risk and resilience is stressed. We seek individuals who have the capacity for cross-disciplinary research and practice who will contribute to reshaping contemporary debates on environment, society, land development, and land conservation. Candidates should demonstrate a specific research trajectory or a history of professional practice that leads to promising design research agendas.
Housed in the Department of Landscape Architecture, the Professor of Landscape Architecture position will require instruction in graduate-level design studios, lecture and seminar courses in the context of an interdisciplinary design school with departments of architecture, urban planning and design, and advanced studies programs. Candidates should be landscape architects with an internationally respected record of distinguished accomplishment in their primary academic/professional endeavours in relation to infrastructure and design or design and planning at the scale of the region and should be able to interact with related planning and design disciplines at Harvard.
Candidates are required to hold a graduate degree in landscape architecture or related field including urban design or urban planning, geography, environmental planning, and design. A doctoral degree is desirable, but not required.
Applicants should submit a curriculum vitae and letter of interest. Short-listed candidates will be asked to submit additional application materials.
