University of Texas - Austin, School of Architecture
Tenure-Track Assistant Professor: Race and Gender in the Built Environment
|Institution Type:||College / University|
|Location:||Texas, United States|
The University of Texas at Austin School of Architecture is seeking a tenure-track Assistant Professor to join its new initiative on Race, Gender, and the U.S. Environment.
The School of Architecture has established a new initiative to strengthen our teaching and research on the relationship between race and/or gender and the built environment in the United States. Through this initiative, we seek to bring both new perspectives to our faculty and new lenses to our teaching, scholarship, and creative practice. This initiative responds to the particular history of racial oppression and segregation in the U.S., as well as cultural norms regarding gender roles, that have shaped the built and social environments of our cities and continue to affect their design and development.
The selected faculty member can choose to affiliate with any of the programs within the school, which include interior design, architecture, urban design, landscape architecture, sustainable design, historic preservation, and community and regional planning. In addition, they would be encouraged to engage and collaborate with scholars across campus in programs, departments, and centers such as American Studies, African and African Diaspora Studies, the Institute for Urban Policy Research & Analysis, the Warfield Center, the Center for the Study of Race and Democracy, the Lozano Long Institute of Latin American Studies, and the Center for Women’s and Gender Studies, in support of their scholarship and teaching.
The successful candidate will hold a Ph.D. or advanced professional degree complemented by current research and/or creative practice that demonstrates a rigorous pursuit of issues associated with race and/or gender in the U.S. built environment. To be considered for the position, please submit the following materials: a statement of interest describing your research and teaching interests, a current CV, a sample of work and/or portfolio, and contact information for three references. Review of qualified applicants will begin in early December and continue until the position is filled.
