Christos Yessios Digital Fabrication Visiting Professor

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 centered within a close constellation of other large cities.

The Yessios Visiting Professorship provides a minimum nine-month residency to investigate a specific project related to emerging digital fabrication tools and related technologies, to produce within this period an exhibition and lecture concerning that work, and to develop their ideas in the context of teaching an architectural design studio and seminar. A Graduate Research Assistant will assist in producing the proposed project, and the Visiting Professorship will include a budget for research/project materials.

A wide range of topics for study will be considered, especially investigations that focus on computer-controlled fabrication techniques and research in technology, digital media, and material assemblies, with preference given to those which are seen to integrate with the School's strengths and leverage the School’s resources and are best able to situate the proposed research within a wider design environment.  Screening will begin February 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.
