Tenured or Tenure-Track Faculty Position for 2022-2023

Rice Architecture invites applications and nominations for a tenured or tenure-track faculty appointment at the associate or assistant professor rank.

Rice Architecture is a nimble and well-resourced school that promotes the interrelationship of practice and scholarship. We are committed to supporting and advancing the voices of architects in academia and producing research and creative practice at the highest level. We seek outstanding design studio faculty who can teach across our undergraduate and graduate programs, as well as lecture courses and seminars in their research area. The school is interested in candidates with a clear line of inquiry who will contribute to the collective conversation of the faculty and the advancement of the field of architecture more broadly. We are particularly interested in historically underrepresented voices-such as Black, Indigenous, people of color (BIPOC), women, LGBTQ people, and people of all abilities-and we welcome candidates whose work and lived experiences will expand our conversations, perspectives, and practices. Located in Houston, Texas, the fourth-largest and most diverse city in the U.S., Rice Architecture draws upon the city’s immense arts, culture, and industry to educate architects for a new multicultural world. A place of many unique conditions, Houston is also indicative of complex urban conditions elsewhere, empowering the school to bridge the local and the global while boldly engaging the world at large.

This position is available beginning fall 2022. Candidates should hold, at a minimum, a Master of Architecture degree or its equivalent. Professional licensure or an advanced research degree such as a Ph.D. is preferred. Successful candidates will have exemplary teaching and professional experience, including a portfolio of inspiring and field-defining design work and/or body of scholarship. Review of applications will begin on November 15, 2021 and continue until the position is filled.

Applications must include a letter of interest with a brief overview of candidate’s background, interests, and approach to teaching and research; a statement on candidate’s contributions to diversity, equity, and inclusion; a curriculum vitae; a focused selection of work; and contact information for three references. The job application can be accessed through
