The title of the position is flexible according to the candidate’s qualifications.

Real Estate has been identified as an area of strategic importance for the Collins College of Business. The college has recently launched an undergraduate minor in real estate and plans to expand undergraduate and graduate curricular offerings in real estate in the next 1-3 years as well as launch a center for real estate.

The University of Tulsa also offers free tuition for faculty dependents. The University is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action Employer and is committed to diversifying its faculty and staff. Members of underrepresented groups are strongly encouraged to apply.

The University of Tulsa seeks to recruit and retain talented students, faculty and staff from diverse backgrounds. A goal of this search is to increase diversity of the faculty and we therefore welcome applicants who come from groups that are historically underrepresented, such as Black/African American, Hispanic/Latino, American Indian or Alaskan Native.


The successful applicant will teach courses in the College’s undergraduate and graduate programs, maintain active and productive research in the expanding field of real estate, broadly defined, and engage in appropriate professional and service activities.


Candidates who possess a Ph.D. degree in Finance, Real Estate, Economics, or a related field are invited to apply. ABD’s close to completion will be considered for appointment at the rank of Assistant Professor, provided they will complete their degree prior to the position start date in August 2023.

The successful candidate will be expected to engage in high-quality, innovative, and, as appropriate, externally funded research. Research focus is broadly defined and should be in one or more of the following general areas: (1) real estate finance, investment, development, asset and portfolio management (an emphasis in commercial or corporate real estate is particularly desirable); (2) economic, financial and public policy applications in urban economics; (3) sustainability, environmental, social, governance (ESG), social infrastructure and housing affordability- as they apply to the built environment.

Preference will be given to candidates specializing in impactful applied research, have strong industry engagement, proven ability to link theory and practice in their area(s) of expertise. Preference will be given to candidates who have an established record of quality teaching and research, and experience in outreach in the professional real estate community and/or prior professional experience in real estate.
