Lecturer Position in Interior Design Studies
Indiana University, Bloomington
Join an engaging community of design practitioners and scholars in the Indiana University Interior Design Studies Program http://iub.edu/~amid. The lecturer position is based at Indiana University’s main campus in Bloomington and offers an opportunity to join a vibrant and growing CIDA accredited program. The program is housed in a recently renovated complex of studio and support spaces. The program boasts state of the art technology and a growing collection of classic furniture pieces.
Candidates must have a professional design degree and a Master’s degree in interior design or a related design field. NCIDQ certification is highly desirable. Other professional qualifications in design, e.g. LEED, are beneficial. Commercial interior design experience is highly desirable.
We are seeking candidates who are able to articulate a clear design philosophy that meaningfully relates programmatic issues to aesthetic considerations. Explicit evidence of a design process taken from conception to execution and a minimum of two years of teaching experience in a Council for Interior Design Accreditation program would be preferred. Candidates must provide a portfolio of relevant design work demonstrating creativity of design process, representation, and presentation.
Candidates must be comfortable team teaching in a multidisciplinary setting.
The successful candidate will be a creative designer who can bring examples of recent “real life” projects into the design studio for the students. Having a defined aesthetic sense, especially concerning concept and three-dimensional development, will be of great benefit.
Position Responsibilities include, but are not limited to:
- Teach an annual course load of five three-hour undergraduate courses during 10-month academic year; specific courses to be determined based on person’s academic/research specialty.
