SoArch Seeking George N. Pauly, Jr. Fellowship Applicants
The Carnegie Mellon University School of Architecture has established the George N. Pauly Jr., Fellowship to provide emerging practitioners and studio educators the opportunity to develop a body of work while teaching at a vibrant school of architecture. Pauly Fellows contribute to the intellectual life of the school through a 9-month, Pittsburgh-based appointment that focuses on two design studios and a research seminar related to their creative activity, research, and pedagogical agenda. Additional support is offered to the Fellows through a research assistant and/or research funding. The work of the Fellows is presented in a public forum such as a lecture, symposium, and/or exhibition.
The School of Architecture is situated within a College of Fine Arts that includes schools of Art, Design, Drama, Music and the Studio for Creative Inquiry, and also within a major research university with a strategic initiative to combine technology and the arts. The relatively small size of Carnegie Mellon and the interdisciplinary nature of the University provide a fertile context for interdisciplinary projects. While a wide range of proposals are welcomed, preference will be given to those applications that leverage the School’s resources in emergent fabrication and material technologies, computational design, building performance and sustainability, and history and theory.
The School of Architecture invites applicants for the 2nd annual Pauly Fellowship to begin in fall 2013. Candidates are asked to submit a cover letter that outlines how the fellowship fits within a career path, a one-page proposal for their research/creative work as a Fellow, a curriculum vitae, a portfolio of work, and the names of three references. Review of applications will begin on February 20 and continue until the position is filled.
Questions should be directed to: Kai Gutschow.
