The Tulane University School of Architecture is seeking qualified candidates for the Tulane Architecture Fellowship beginning Fall 2021. This visiting assistant professor position is a two-year teaching and research fellowship that endeavors to mentor emerging scholars, practitioners, and academics who are committed to principles of diversity, equity, and inclusion in the built environment.

Tulane University, located in New Orleans in Louisiana, is a tier-one research university in the United States. The Tulane School of Architecture is an innovator in the field of the built environment at multiple scales - from buildings to neighborhoods, and to large-scale landscapes and urban planning. We are dedicated to collaborating with other schools at Tulane such as Science and Engineering, Liberal Arts, Law, and Public Health. Tulane School of Architecture undertakes multidisciplinary research that involves climate change, coastal and riparian crisis, historic preservation, sustainable real estate, and the challenges for social and environmental justice. The city of New Orleans and the Mississippi Delta are our natural domains of research. The city is home to a diverse community of people, places, events, and cultures steeped in a long history of action and exchange. Additionally, the complicated nature of this region provides ample opportunities for comparative global studies. For this reason, we expect Tulane’s contributions to be of major relevance.  You can learn more about the school through .

The Tulane Architecture Fellow is expected to teach 15 credits per year or equivalent to two studio courses and one lecture/seminar course per year at the undergraduate and/or graduate levels. Concurrently, the fellow is expected to conduct research during tenure of the fellowship. The area of research is open and based on the individual interest of the fellow.  The fellow will be invited to present part of their research in a public forum during the end of the second fellowship year. During the time of the fellowship, the fellow will also be mentored by faculty from TuSA regarding teaching and research.


The successful candidate must have a graduate degree in Architecture, or related fields as evidenced with publications, design/creative practice, exhibitions, 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.
