Consistent with the University's Discovery Themes (see https://discovery.osu.edu), we seek candidates whose research focuses on data analytics (including GIS or spatial statistics) as applied to sustainability, environment and energy, and/or regional planning. The successful candidate will have an applied approach to research and be well-grounded in the theory and practice of planning. The Trott Vising Professor is expected to give at least one public presentation of his or her research; beyond that, our interest is in developing connections throughout the University via regular interactions with faculty and students. The Trott Professor will have the opportunity to teach (or co-teach) courses, seminars or graduate-level studios if he or she wishes. Preferred qualifications include a PhD in planning or a related field and experience working in an interdisciplinary environment.

Located on the main campus of The Ohio State University (OSU), the City & Regional Planning section offers a professionally accredited master of city and regional planning degree, along with a research oriented doctoral degree. The program also has an undergraduate major and the successful candidate will be expected to contribute to all of the academic programs. The C&RP section has 13 faculty members, 119 undergraduate students, 98 master’s students, 28 PhD students, and is active in research, teaching and service, alongside programs in architecture and landscape architecture. Increasingly our curriculum encourages students to work with diverse disciplines across the College of Engineering and the University to develop individual areas of concentration. Since its inception in 1956, the C&RP program has produced some of the most influential and effective planning professionals in the world. The program's high quality and large size offer a challenging and stimulating learning environment for its students. Students work closely with the faculty and explore a wide range of topics geared toward improving physical, spatial, social, economic, and environmental quality of life for people. The program has an outstanding internship program in which more than 90% of master’s students have 20-hour per week paid internships (some with tuition and fee waivers) with public and private planning agencies in the metropolitan area.
