Visiting Faculty Position in the Department of Architecture and Design at the American University of Beirut

american University of BeirutVisiting Faculty Position in the Department of Architecture and Design at the American University of Beirut

The Department of Architecture and Design in the Faculty of Engineering and Architecture at the American University of Beirut invites applications for a visiting position for one or two semester in the field of History of Art and Architecture, beginning in August 2017.

The Department has two undergraduate programs, one in Architecture and one in Graphic Design, and two graduate programs in Urban Planning and Policy and in Urban Design. Teaching design-related courses at the department applies professional and technical skills within a process that is culturally and theoretically grounded. Art and design disciplines are understood as cultural practices that engage social, economic and political issues and as critical tools of inquiry that integrate process with product and methodology with representation in a multidisciplinary manner. Inquiry through design comes with an acute awareness of our existence in the region with its multitude of languages and cultures and our location within Beirut with its exceptional physical fabric and cultural formats. The discourse on the city is intense and pluralistic. It links the undergraduate and graduate programs of study in Architecture, Graphic Design and Planning and facilitates close interaction between them and with the professional community. The Department is currently working to establish new graduate programs.

A candidate with a Ph.D. in Art History or a closely related discipline is preferred, but ABD with demonstrated teaching experience will also be considered. The candidate will contribute to the teaching of courses in the history of art and architecture sequence and will offer a seminar in the area of his/her specialty. Applicants should be grounded in the art and architecture of the modern period and have a minor specialty in non-Western art, or in the cultures of the Mediterranean rim.

Applications should be submitted electronically. Applications will be evaluated on a rolling basis as of April 30, 2017.

Candidates are invited to submit 1) a letter of application including a brief statement of teaching philosophy and research/creative activity, 2) a curriculum vitae, 3) samples of publications, and 4) the names and full contact information of at least three referees to: Dean of the Faculty of Engineering and Architecture, American University of Beirut,
