We seek candidates who demonstrate a commitment to advancing the profession of landscape architecture while working collaboratively across disciplines. Those who seek to advance the design of equitable public space through their professional work are particularly encouraged to apply.
The ranks of Associate Professor of Practice and Professor of Practice are reserved for distinguished professionals who wish to combine education and practice.

It is not tenure-track or tenure-eligible. Teaching requirements may vary from half-time (usually one semester-long design studio per year) to a maximum of three-fourths time.
