Asst Prof/Assoc of Architecture without Tenure


The Department of Architecture, together with the Schwarzman College of Computing (SCC), at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) invites applications for a tenure track faculty position (Assistant Professor or Associate Professor without Tenure) in the broad area of computing in materials and fabrication. We welcome candidates with a background in design who have experience translating
computational design theories and technologies into the realities of our physical environment, from the scale of objects to the scale of buildings, landscapes, or ecologies. Examples of research areas include, but are not limited to, computational materials, fabrication, construction processes, digital craft and indigenous practices, AI and machine learning in fabrication or material exploration, bio-design, environmental performance, and the social-cultural and ethical dimensions of making. The position is a shared appointment in the Department of Architecture and the SCC, with a promotion and tenure home in Department of Architecture. The expected start date is July 1, 2024, or on a mutually agreed date thereafter.

Candidates should demonstrate evidence of commitment to their work at the highest level. This evidence may include works of research, scholarship, or design practice; it may include peer-reviewed papers in journals and conference proceedings, books or book chapters, community engagement projects, exhibitions/installations in culturally influential venues, impactful software, built prototypes, or professional work. Candidates should also demonstrate through past, current, or envisioned efforts the ability to support our institutional commitment to ensuring that MIT is inclusive, equitable, and diverse.
