Wortham Fellowship

Rice University

Rice Architecture invites applications and nominations for two Wortham Fellows. The Wortham Fellowship was established 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 practice and teaching. The school is particularly interested in highly motivated candidates with a clearly defined design/research agenda who are also prepared to contribute to our commitment to diversity and inclusion in our curriculum. We encourage applications from women and historically underrepresented groups. 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.

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 (9MB max upload)—and contact information for three references. Shortlisted candidates may be asked to submit a full portfolio at a later date.

The deadline for applications is January 4, 2021. The link to apply and additional information about the Rice School of Architecture can be found at http://arch.rice.edu.
