Tenure-track Assistant or Associate Professor of Real Estate Development

    Tulane School of Architecture
    October 20, 2019
    New Orleans


    Position Description:

    The Tulane University School of Architecture is seeking qualified candidates in Real Estate Development at the rank of Assistant or Associate Professor. 

    This position will support our educational mission in the teaching of real estate development at both the graduate and undergraduate levels, while contributing to the development of our urban research agenda in the areas of social impact, cultural preservation, and environmental resilience. We have particular interest in a candidate who can contribute to research in the area of river and delta urbanism, both in the Gulf Coast and globally. Those contributions will include original published research as well as grant applications for additional research in coordination with other schools and departments at Tulane University, and/or other universities.

    The selected candidate will integrate her or his expertise within our Master of Sustainable Real Estate Development (MSRED) program and a new Bachelor of Science in Real Estate (BSRE) program. Although these are interdisciplinary programs uniquely housed in a school of architecture and design, we are seeking a faculty member with particular expertise and background in real estate finance, public policy, and/or economics.

    Tulane’s academic programs in real estate are aligned with the School’s traditional Architecture degrees (B Arch, BS Arch, M Arch, and MS Arch), Master of Preservation Studies (MPS) degree, and the A.B. Freeman School of Business degrees (MBA and M.Fin). We are looking to add a faculty member with a traditional background in real estate finance, but the ideal candidate will have some academic or other credentials in architecture, planning, or environmental design, as well as recognized national or international experience.

    Salary and academic rank will be commensurate with qualifications and experience.
    The search committee will commence its initial screening of applications on December 15, 2019. However, applications will be accepted and reviewed until the position is filled.


    Successful candidates for this position will have a terminal degree in their core academic discipline and substantial professional experience, and/or a PhD. 

    Candidates should exhibit proficiency in project finance including mixed-finance development and public policy. Faculty members at Tulane School of Architecture are expected to teach; work with the faculty, the dean, and other departments at Tulane to develop curriculum; contribute to cross-disciplinary research initiatives; and engage in service through a range of academic committees. Furthermore, candidates are expected to vigorously pursue an agenda of high-profile academic research, writing, and creative production. 

    Candidates for this position should be accomplished professionals able to teach core undergraduate and graduate courses, advise on academic research projects, and provide professional career advice nationally and internationally. Applicants should have a demonstrated record of excellence in teaching seminar and/or lecture courses, as well as articles published in national or international journals, built projects, or demonstrated public sector successes. 

    The successful candidate will be expected to participate in professional development activities, attend professional development seminars and conferences, attend and participate in department and appropriate university meetings, attend commencement annually, be available to prospective students and alumni, mentor new faculty, and comply with administrative and other requirements of the School and University.

    Application Instructions and Submission:

    Applicants should submit the following materials:

    1. Curriculum vitae or professional resume
    2. Statement of intent including the candidate's teaching, professional, and scholarly interests.
    3. List of three (3) references with email addresses and telephone numbers
    4. Evidence of professional work and accomplishments.

    1: published work and professional achievements; PDF

    2: sample work of your students; PDF

    3: sample syllabi and other evidence of teaching excellence.

    You should interpret our request for items demonstrating “professional achievements” as what you think most appropriately represents your work at this time, and the creative work/scholarship you would intend to pursue as a faculty member here at Tulane.

    The search committee will commence its review of applications on December 15, 2019 and will continue until the position is filled.

    Equal Employment Opportunity Statement:
