EMERGING SCHOLAR IN DESIGN
School of Architecture - The University of Texas at Austin
Location: Austin, Texas
Open: Dec 7, 2018
The University of Texas at Austin School of Architecture invites applications and nominations for its 2019-21 Emerging Scholar in Design. This recently established fellowship offers promising individuals that are at the beginning of their academic career in architecture and its allied fields the opportunity to develop a body of work in the context of teaching and research. The school particularly encourages highly motivated applicants that are able to integrate their scholarly trajectory with their pedagogical agenda.
For the duration of the two-year fellowship, the scholar will teach a design studio and an elective or support course in each long semester, plus one course in the summer session. Teaching responsibilities may involve both the graduate and undergraduate programs. In addition to teaching, the successful candidate is expected to contribute to the intellectual life of the school by engaging in critical theoretical and/or creative work, which will be presented to the university community through a public format, such as a lecture or an exhibition, depending on the nature of their work.
The University of Texas at Austin is one of the largest and most highly regarded public universities in the United States. The School of Architecture offers post-professional and research degree programs in Sustainable Design, Urban Design, Historic Preservation, and Architectural History, in addition to professionally accredited degree and post-professional degree programs in Architecture, Landscape Architecture, Community and Regional Planning, and Interior Design. The School is organized to support interdisciplinary education and has established strong collaborations and new initiatives that engage planning and design issues in Mexico and Latin America. It has recently undertaken a new initiative on Race, Gender, and the Built Environment to advance scholarship and teaching on topics related to equity in American urban areas. For additional information about the School of Architecture, its programs, and its people, please visit the website: www.soa.utexas.edu.
The University of Texas at Austin benefits, as does the School of Architecture, from the thriving situation of the city of Austin, which is the 11th most populous city in the US and is rapidly expanding. It is positioned in the growing mega-region of Austin-Dallas-Houston, and partakes of the rich borderland culture between Mexico and the United States.
The candidate should hold, at a minimum, a Master of Architecture degree or its equivalent.
Review of applications will begin on January 30, 2019, and will continue until the position is filled.
Applications should include:
- A cover letter describing experience and interest with regard to research, practice, and teaching
