Job Description
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 UT School of Architecture 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:
