Tenured and Tenure-Track Faculty Positions in Urban Planning

The Department of Urban Studies and Planning (DUSP) at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) seeks outstanding faculty candidates for multiple positions. We are looking for individuals who can enhance our efforts to improve the quality of life in and resilience of the world’s urban regions through planning, design, and policymaking.

We invite applications from individuals engaged in innovative research, teaching and practice, who can contribute to the department in one or more of the following areas:

  • Urban and Regional Economics

  • Environmental Policy and Ecological Planning

  • Community and Land Use Planning

  • Spatial Modeling and Urban Analytics

    As a multi-disciplinary department with students from around the world, we welcome candidates from fields such as planning, economics, sociology, law, and ecology; we also encourage applicants with international expertise, including those with knowledge of the Global South.

    Initial appointments are expected to be made at pre-tenure ranks, although in exceptional cases we will consider more senior tenured candidates.  Successful applicants will be expected to engage with students from the department’s undergraduate, professional masters (MCP), and doctoral programs.

Frederick Law Olmsted Chair In Civil and Environmental Engineering, Georgia Institute of Technology

The Georgia Institute of Technology invites outstanding applicants to fill an endowed chair position, the Frederick Law Olmsted Chair in the School of Civil and Environmental Engineering in Atlanta, GA.  The School seeks individuals who demonstrate excellence in teaching, research, scholarship, and service and have strong records of leadership in the profession. The ideal candidate will teach and lead research in the general area of sustainable urban infrastructure systems, with a research focus that is at the intersection of civil & environmental engineering systems and urban ecology, urban design, public health, public space, and policy.

Generally regarded as the father of American landscape architecture, Frederick Law Olmsted integrated civil & environmental engineering, community building and natural systems to create treasured examples of multi-purpose park systems and infrastructure in 24 states and the District of Columbia, including Central Park and Ocean Parkway in New York City, the Emerald Necklace in Boston, the Riverside Community in Illinois, and Druid Hills in Atlanta.  This endowed chair has been created to inspire future generations of transformational civil and environmental engineers with the concepts pioneered and developed by the legendary landscape architect.

Candidates must intend to work in interdisciplinary areas that address critical local, national, and global challenges and contribute to the strategic research directions of the School, College, and Institute.  It is expected that the candidate would have a courtesy appointment in multiple departments and/or colleges at Georgia Tech.

The School of Civil and Environmental Engineering has vibrant programs in Construction Engineering, Environmental Engineering, Environmental Fluid Mechanics and Water Resources, Geotechnical Engineering, Structural Engineering/Mechanics/Materials, and Transportation Engineering. In both Civil Engineering and Environmental Engineering, the School’s undergraduate programs are ranked 3rd nationally, and the graduate programs are ranked 5th and 4th, respectively. The School currently has approximately 750 undergraduate and 400 graduate students, and 54 full time tenure track faculty.

Applications will be given maximum consideration if received by December 1, 2014. Screening of applicants will begin immediately and will continue until the position is filled. While the expectation is for this to be a tenured, full-time, nine-month appointment at the rank of Full Professor, candidates with an innovative professional and practice-oriented background are invited to apply at the rank of Associate Professor or Professor-of-the-Practice. All candidates must hold a Doctorate in civil or environmental engineering or other related field.  Applicants should submit a cover letter indicating research and teaching interests and a brief statement on how they would make use of the support from the endowed funds; a curriculum vitae; up to three samples of recent work; and contact information for five references to:
