Howard E. LeFevre '29 Emerging Practitioner Fellowship


Howard E. LeFevre ’29 Emerging Practitioner Fellowship

Situated within a major research university with state-of-the-art facilities, the Knowlton School provides a unique environment for innovative design research and critical inquiry. The Knowlton School enjoys the resources of the university and a metropolitan area of approximately two million people with easy access to a number of other metropolitan areas.

The Fellowship provides an emerging practitioner a 9-month residency to investigate a specific project related to his/her overall development, to produce within the Fellowship period an exhibition and lecture concerning that work, and to develop their ideas in the context of teaching an architectural design studio. A Graduate Research Assistant will assist in producing the proposed project and monograph and the Fellowship will include a budget for research/project materials. A wide range of topics for study will be considered, with preference to those which leverage the School’s resources, especially investigations into history, contemporary culture, theory, and analysis; advanced techniques in the design of buildings and cities; and research in technology, media and material assemblies.

Screening will begin January 1, 2018. Invitations to visit the campus will be sent out beginning shortly thereafter. The search will remain open until the position is filled.

Candidates should contact Doug Sershen at for instructions on how to submit applications electronically in pdf format. Materials should include a letter of interest, a one page proposal of the residency project, a curriculum vitae, a portfolio of creative work/scholarship (30 pages maximum), and the names and contact information of three references.
