Assistant Professor of Architecture

Rice School of Architecture, located in Houston, TX, invites applications and nominations for two tenure-track faculty appointments at the assistant professor rank. As a small and prominent school committed to design as the core of architectural inquiry, Rice Architecture emphasizes the interrelationship of practice and scholarship. Successful candidates will be expected to conduct design studios (undergraduate and graduate) as well as lecture courses and seminars in a specific area of expertise (environment, technology, urbanism, history/theory/criticism, representation, fabrication, etc.). The school is interested in candidates with a defined voice and a clear design/research/intellectual line of inquiry who will contribute to the collective conversation of the faculty.

These positions are available beginning fall 2020. Candidates should hold, at a minimum, a Master of Architecture degree or its equivalent. Degree requirements must be fulfilled by July 1 of the year employment commences. Prior teaching and professional experience, and an outstanding record of design and/or scholarly work are expected. The deadline for applications is December 30th, 2019.

Applications must include a letter of interest, a curriculum vitae, a focused selection of work highlighting your design/research/writing (up to 10MB), syllabi of previous or prospective courses, and contact information for three references. Shortlisted candidates will be asked to submit a full portfolio at a later date.
