About the Garofalo Fellowship

The School of Architecture, in the College of Architecture, Design, and the Arts, at the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC), is proud to announce the search for the Douglas A. Garofalo Fellowship for the 2015–2016 academic year. Named in honor of architect and educator Doug Garofalo (1958–2011), this newly established nine-month teaching fellowship provides emerging designers the opportunity to teach studio and seminar courses in the undergraduate and graduate programs and conduct independent design research. The fellowship also includes a public lecture and exhibition in the spring.

Doug Garofalo had a passion for exceptional design that was matched only by his inspiring talents as an educator. Garofalo began his teaching career at UIC in 1989, moving through all ranks from part-time adjunct assistant professor to tenured full professor and Interim Director. Representing the highest ideal of the academic practitioner, Doug Garofalo was a tireless mentor and source of inspiration for his students and the junior architects in his office, many of whom now teach at UIC as well as at many other schools across the country. The School seeks candidates who aspire to the professional and academic standards of inventiveness and integrity established by Doug.

UIC is one of the nation's major urban public research universities, and it is from this context that the School of Architecture extends its three part agenda: to condition the metropolis, construct new audiences, and circulate ideas. Successful candidates will share this ambition and global perspective. Please submit the following materials to Garofalo Fellowship Search Committee, UIC School of Architecture, 845 W Harrison Street, 3100 Architecture + Design Studios Building, Chicago, IL 60607:

· letter of interest
· curriculum vita
