Curator for Public Programs and Director of Publications, Carnegie Mellon University School of Architecture

Curator for Public Programs and Director of Publications

Carnegie Mellon University’s (CMU) School of Architecture invites applications for the position of Curator of Public Programs and Director of CM–A Publications. This position is responsible for creating dynamic events, publications, and exhibitions that bring together the school’s many constituents and audiences. You will contribute to the school by working with faculty and students to produce the annual public programs series that include lectures, symposia, panel discussions, screenings and exhibitions. You will also direct the annual publication of student work, EX-CHANGE, and its accompanying exhibition. The Public Programs at the school serve to bridge the various interests of the programs across architectural design, urban design, building performance, sustainable design, computational design and construction management. They also are a means to address the school’s pedagogical focus on climate change, artificial intelligence and social justice.

This is a unique opportunity for someone with experience working in multiple modes of architectural discourse (events, publications, exhibitions, etc.) to work strategically and build partnerships within the school, across the university, and beyond. We are looking for someone who will bring leadership and vision to the launch of the school’s forthcoming publishing imprint. Experience writing and editing is a plus, particularly experience taking illustrated books from the concept stage through printing. With many concurrent projects underway, the ideal candidate is also comfortable managing a team, commissioning designers, and working with outside editors to meet tight deadlines. 


Deadline: May 31
