Following its rapid growth and expansion in recent years, the Tulane School of Architecture (TuSA) is searching for multiple tenure-track and professor of practice positions across its programs – architecture, historic preservation, real estate development, social innovation and social entrepreneurship, and the school’s newest graduate program in landscape architecture.
“As we offer a broader range of courses and disciplines, it is imperative to build upon our existing excellent faculty,” said Iñaki Alday, Dean at TuSA. “We are seeking the most innovative and capable individuals to lead the next generation of architects, designers, preservationists, real estate developers, and creators.”
The new faculty positions are needed not only as the school develops new programs and courses, but also as the school’s student population has nearly doubled in three years.
Located in New Orleans, TuSA focuses on the built environment at multiple scales - from buildings to neighborhoods and their people, and from urban landscapes to regional planning. TuSA is known for robust community outreach, design-build, and multi-disciplinary research initiatives – collaborating with other schools and centers at Tulane in the fields of science and engineering, liberal arts, law, and public health. The school is undertaking design research that involves climate change, coastal and riparian crisis, historic preservation, sustainable real estate development, and the challenges for social and environmental justice.
“In the center of the Gulf Coast, the Third Coast, the complex nature of New Orleans and its region provides ample opportunities for comparative global studies,” said Alday. “Therefore, Tulane’s work provides relevant contributions to addressing social, economic, environmental challenges impacting millions of people in the world.”
All open faculty positions start as early as summer 2023. While some searches begin reviewing applications this month, all will remain open until filled. Qualified candidates are encouraged to apply regardless of when application reviews are initiated.
