The McEwen School of Architecture is seeking candidates for the position of Visiting Francophone Scholar in Architecture for the Fall 2019 semester. The term will be 17 weeks, effective August 19, 2019.
The position of Visiting Francophone Researcher has four essential elements:
1. Research grant of approximately $3,000.00 per month for the duration of the contract, for a
total amount of $13,500.00.
2. Travel grant to relocate to Sudbury for $1,500.00
3. Research grant of $2,500.00 to support the development of a synthesis work, a research project
4. Course load of a design studio (6 teaching credits) with a salary of $ 14,510. The design studio is taught by a team of four to five teachers, and the candidate does not need to develop a course, but rather be the instructor for one of the groups. While studio instruction should be in French, it is necessary to be fluent in English in order to communicate with the rest of the team.
Applicants must have a professional degree in architecture or in a relevant field, and be able to work in Canada. All applicants must demonstrate research skills (eg. publications and scholarship) and/or design skills (eg. constructed projects, competitions and design awards). Experience in teaching architecture is an asset. It is essential to have fluency in both oral and written French.
The successful candidate will contribute to the following activities:
- Present a lecture in French as part of the McEwen School of Architecture public lecture series;
- Participate in mid-term and final reviews of two Francophone studios;
- Participate in Francophone cultural events taking place at the school;
- Pursue a synthetic research or research-creation work at the McEwen School of Architecture, ideally using students as assistants and/or other faculty members as collaborators.
