POSITION DESCRIPTION

The Tulane University School of Architecture is seeking qualified candidates for the Tulane Architecture Fellowship beginning Fall 2023. This visiting assistant professor position is a two-year teaching and research fellowship that endeavors to mentor emerging academics who will contribute to issues of diversity, equity, and inclusion in the built environment.

This position is part of the TuSA EDI Strategic plan (titled the Strategy for Tomorrow). The plan has several key priorities, one of which aims to develop a robust and diverse cohort of faculty.

The School is known for our robust community outreach, design-build, and multi-disciplinary research initiatives. We collaborate with other schools at Tulane such as Science and Engineering, Liberal Arts, Law, Business, and Public Health, with university research centers such as the Bywater Institute and the Phyllis Taylor Center for Social Innovation and Design Thinking. The School undertakes design research involving climate change, coastal and riparian crises, historic preservation, sustainable real estate development, and the challenges for social and environmental justice. The complex nature of this region provides ample opportunities for comparative global studies. For this reason, we expect Tulane’s contributions to be of urgent relevance.

Located in New Orleans, Tulane University is a tier-one research university in the United States, a member of the select group of top research universities integrated in the AAU. The School is an innovator in the field of the built environment at multiple scales, from buildings to neighborhoods and from urban landscapes to regional planning. The City of New Orleans and the Mississippi Delta are our natural domains of research, with the social and ecological challenges of the region at the forefront of contemporary discourses in global cities. The city is home to a diverse community steeped in a long history of action and exchange. Our 15th President, Mike Fitts, has strong commitments to anti-racism that the Tulane School of Architecture has taken up in multiple ways. The Tulane School of Architecture is committed to climate action and is charting a path for climate change education across each of its representative programs. Social and climate justice are interconnected phenomena that demand a new ethic of the built and unbuilt environments that is reinforced by pioneering research, teaching, and service.

Tulane School of Architecture is a founding partner of the Deans’ Equity and Inclusion Initiative (DEII- https://www.deansequityandincludioninitiative.com) with over two dozen schools of architecture committed to fostering a community of early career faculty, with attention to BIPOC and other under-represented faculty, to challenge, expand, and enrich the planning, design, construction, and stewardship of the built environment. As a DEII member, we offer a two-year Fellows Mentoring program that includes summer programs and bi-monthly mentoring meetings. Fellows are offered the intellectual freedom to “teach and research what you are interested in, where you want to make a difference”, keeping spatial justice, public good, and the ambition of addressing major societal and environmental challenges as a shared focus.

The Tulane Architecture Fellow is expected to participate in this program as part of a national cohort, and benefit from the summer mentorship activities. The Fellow will select a Tulane mentor who will support the development of her or his academic career.

The successful candidate must have a graduate degree in architecture or related field as evidenced with publications, design/creative practice, exhibitions, and design competitions, among others. We are interested in candidates who will contribute to diversity, equity, and inclusion in the school and university through their teaching, research, and service.
