The architecture section of the Knowlton School of Architecture at The Ohio State University seeks candidates for the Howard E. LeFevre ’29 Emerging Practitioner Fellowship. The annual fellowship offers the opportunity and resources for an emerging practitioner to pursue advanced research directed toward expanding the boundaries of the discipline. Past fellows have explored a broad range of topics relative to contemporary issues in the discipline and culture at large. Since 2000, the LeFevre Fellowship has supported architects and designers with a range of research interests, including history, theory, contemporary culture, media, technology, material assembly, and advanced digital techniques with respect to the design of the built environment. We seek candidates to continue the tradition of supporting innovative research centered on topics relevant to the continued evolution of disciplinary practice.
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 several other metropolitan areas. This Fellowship offers the successful applicant a 9-month fellowship to investigate and develop your project. In relation to that investigation and within the fellowship period, you will be asked
- To teach a design studio in which ideas related to your project are considered within the disciplinary context of architecture, and,
- To prepare and present an exhibition as well as a pamphlet, catalogue or monograph about the project.
The successful candidate will have a degree in architecture or a related field. The Fellowship provides a salary for teaching, a paid Graduate Research Assistant, and a separate budget for research/project materials.

Materials should include a letter of interest, a one-page proposal of the fellowship project, a curriculum vitae, a portfolio of creative work/scholarship (30 pages maximum), and the names and contact information of three references.
