Research Fellowship in Building Technology

The School of Architecture (SoA) at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte invites applications for a two-year Research Fellowship in Building Technology. As digital technologies transform the building industry, from the techniques used to design and execute buildings to the technologies and systems deployed within them, the SoA seeks to expand its research capacity in innovative building technologies.

The Research Fellow will have the opportunity to manage and collaborate with colleagues in SoA’s Integrated Design Research Lab (IDRL) and state-of-the-art fabrication labs.  The successful candidate will contribute to cutting-edge advanced building technology research and Master of Science curriculum in Building Technology, the outcomes of which include publications, workshops, and public presentations. The Research Fellow will be responsible for managing the day-to-day operations of the IDRL, providing research support including grant proposal writing, desk survey, prototyping, simulation, experimentation, data collection and processing, and peer-reviewed publications. Applicants must demonstrate their ability to be an effective researcher, manager and collaborator. Preference will be given to candidates who integrate computational methods in their research process, including a working knowledge of custom scripting (eg. python, EMS, C++, etc.) in building technology applications. Evidence of published design work, research projects, grant awards, and/or scholarship is required. An advanced graduate degree in Architecture, Building Science, Design Computation or related field is required; PhD is preferred.  The Research Fellowship is a two-year, 12-month EHRA non-tenure track position directed at emerging scholars in building technology.

The SoA is committed to a culturally and intellectually diverse environment that supports a broad range of opportunities for scholarly work. UNC Charlotte is an urban research university in which faculty and students are supported by exceptional facilities and a dynamic metropolitan landscape.  We celebrate diversity that includes, but is not limited to, ability/disability, age, culture, ethnicity, gender identification, language, race, religion, sexual orientation, and socio-economic status.  We strongly encourage applications from women and members of under-represented groups and expect all applicants to identify assets that address our diverse student population. 

Qualified applicants must complete the online application at (position #004033). Application requirements include 1) cover letter, 2) statement on research interests and objectives; 3) statement on teaching interests; 4) statement on approaches to diversity in the context of research and collaboration; 5) annotated portfolio; and 6) CV including contact information for three references.  Review of applications will commence May 1, 2018 and will continue until the position is filled.  Questions regarding the above position may be directed to Chris Jarrett at
