Wortham Fellowship Positions for 2023–2025
Rice Architecture invites applications and nominations for two Wortham Fellows. The Wortham Fellowship was established more than twenty-five years ago to give promising and outstanding candidates the opportunity to teach and conduct research. This two-year teaching fellowship is specifically targeted at individuals who are beginning or advancing a career of teaching, scholarship, and practice. The school is interested in highly motivated candidates with a clearly defined design and research agenda and who will contribute to the collective conversation of the faculty and the advancement of the field of architecture more broadly. We encourage applications from historically underrepresented voices, and we welcome candidates whose work and lived experiences will contribute to our commitment to diversity and inclusion in our curriculum.
With a teaching load of three courses per year, fellows are able to hone their research in the context of the school’s small, tightly knit academic community. Located in Houston, the fourth largest and most diverse city in the United States, Rice Architecture draws upon the city’s immense arts, culture, and industry, offering many opportunities for local and global engagement.
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. Applications should include a letter of interest, curriculum vitae, proposed research agenda, samples of course syllabi, professional, scholarly, or creative work—link or upload (10 MB max.)—and contact information for three references (they will be approached if candidacy is advanced to the next stage of the search process). Shortlisted candidates may be asked to submit a full portfolio at a later date. The deadline for applications is December 30, 2022.
