Type: Fulltime


The Stuckeman School of Architecture and Landscape Architecture and the Departments of Architectural Engineering and Civil and Environmental Engineering invite applications for a postdoctoral scholar position in design computing, a position to support the work of emerging scholars whose work engages the technical, aesthetic, and cultural dimensions of computing as it relates to design and materials. This position is affiliated with the Stuckeman Center for Design Computing (SCDC), an endowed design research and learning laboratory based in the Stuckeman School of Architecture and Landscape Architecture at The Pennsylvania State University. The Stuckeman School is part of the College of Arts & Architecture. The position will require engagement and collaboration within the Department of Architectural Engineering and the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering in Penn State’s College of Engineering and the Stuckeman School of Architecture and Landscape Architecture. The SCDC encompasses a number of research groups and houses state-of-the-art facilities including an Immersive Environments Laboratory, an advanced computing center, and a Digital Fabrication Laboratory. The SCDC is devoted to interdisciplinary design computing research and learning, and collaborates broadly across disciplines including architecture, landscape architecture, graphic design, as well as engineering and environmental sciences, health sciences, social sciences, communications, information technology, and material science. Current SCDC affiliates’ research topics include integrated design modeling, simulation and visualization, spatial analysis, shape grammars, digital media scholarship, GIS, virtual environments, sustainable development, digital fabrication, materials design, user experience/interface design and digital humanities. The Postdoctoral Scholar in Design Computing is expected to contribute to the intellectual life of the Stuckeman School in a variety of ways, which will include engaging with ongoing faculty-led research, namely on three ongoing projects, “Development of Cement?Free Concrete for 3D Printing of Homes,” "Development of Sustainable Concrete for 3D-printing,” and “Construction and Climate Change“ led by faculty Ali Memari, Shadi Nazarian, Aleksandra Radlinska and Jose Duarte; delivering a public lecture; and preparing an exhibition as the culmination of his/her research and creative work at the SCDC. Work will be developed at the Glass and Ceramics Laboratory, at the Civil Infrastructure Testing and Evaluation Laboratory (CITEL), and at the Additive Manufacturing of Infrastructure Lab. The optimal applicant will hold a recent PhD in a design or engineering field and a record of innovative work and/or scholarship in digital fabrication, materials design and testing, or related areas. Those with terminal degrees in design or other materials-related fields may also be considered, conditional upon exceptional qualifications. Research and teaching credentials at the University level are an advantage. Professional experience is desirable but not mandatory. The successful candidate will have access to professional development funds for this 1-year appointment. To apply, candidates must also submit a proposal (1000 words maximum) outlining a specific area of design computing research and learning, and their professional qualifications and experience to pursue this work as a Stuckeman Scholar; a portfolio of their work (10 pages); a curriculum vitae; and the names, phone numbers, and email addresses of three references. Employment will require successful completion of background check(s) in accordance with University policies.
