Employment as Professor, Associate Professor, or Adjunct Professor of Landscape Architecture (Territorial Scale) at Harvard University Graduate School of Design


The urgency for landscape architecture to study and consider larger scales of territory, both nationally and globally, has never been greater. The Department of Landscape Architecture seeks a distinguished researcher and/or practitioner at the Assistant/Associate Professor (tenure track) or Full Professor (full) level in landscape architecture design and planning. The research is open to applicants pursuing a wide variety of landscape architecture topics, 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 recent expertise in climate adaptation, climate risk and resilience is highlighted. We are looking for people who have the capacity for interdisciplinary research and practice who will help reshape contemporary debates about the environment, society, land use planning and land conservation. Applicants should demonstrate a specific research trajectory or history of professional practice that leads to promising design research programs.

Housed within the Department of Landscape Architecture, this position will require teaching in graduate level design studios, lectures and seminars within the framework of an interdisciplinary design school with departments of architecture, urban planning and design and advanced study programs. Applicants should be landscape architects with an internationally respected record of distinguished achievement in their major academic/professional endeavors in relation to infrastructure and design or area-wide design and planning and should be able to interact with related planning and design disciplines at Harvard.

Applicants should have a graduate degree in landscape architecture or a related field, including urban design or planning, geography, environmental planning, and design. A doctorate is desirable, but not required.

Applicants must submit a resume and a letter of interest. Shortlisted applicants will be asked to submit additional application materials.
