Non-tenure Track Instructor of Interior Architecture & Design



Job description

The Department of Art & Design at Suffolk University invites applications for a full-time, non-tenure track instructor of Interior Architecture and Design with a start date of July 1, 2023. The successful candidate will teach courses in both our BFA and MA degree programs. We are seeking a curious, engaged and motivated studio instructor. Candidates should be versatile and possess the creative energy to integrate design into Suffolks broader academic discourse. It is therefore desirable that the candidate has a global perspective and an understanding of the complex issues shaping our built environment; a terminal degree or professional equivalency in a related field is required.

Service responsibilities beyond teaching load include academic advising, student portfolio and thesis reviews, and active participation in the larger Suffolk community. Prior teaching and mentoring experience is critical, and evidence of teaching excellence with both undergraduate and graduate students is preferred. The successful candidate will play an integral role in promoting sustainable and inclusive design methodologies across campus and beyond.

How to apply

Application should be made through the Suffolk HR website and should include the following: letter of application; CV; transcripts; statement of teaching philosophy; professional/research portfolio; sample syllabi (3 maximum); recent student evaluations; and contact information for three professional references.
