The Graduate Program in Community and Regional Planning in the School of Architecture at The University of Texas at Austin invites applications for the tenure track position of Assistant Professor to begin Fall 2013.

The successful candidate will have completed either the Ph.D. in planning, or a combination of a professional master’s degree in planning and a professional design degree including: a master’s degree in architecture (M.Arch.), or landscape architecture (MLA) with an emphasis in urban design. Applicants will be expected to demonstrate their ability to develop and teach courses in site and land use planning as well as in urban design, and also contribute to the core curriculum. Applicants should also exhibit knowledge and teaching capabilities in GIS and other advanced digital technologies related to the planning and urban design fields, including three-dimensional representation. In addition, applicants should demonstrate evidence of independent scholarship in the planning/design field and potential for a successful, peer-reviewed publication record. It is expected that the successful candidate will work closely with faculty in planning and across the design fields in the School of Architecture, specifically architecture, landscape architecture, urban design, historic preservation, and sustainable design.

The CRP Program is 52 years old and has 900+ alumni. The faculty consists of 11 full-time equivalent positions, and the student body comprises approximately 90 masters and 15 doctoral students. Many of the planning faculty and students are engaged in sponsored research through the School of Architecture's Center for Sustainable Development, which coordinates grants and contracts on a variety of topics.

The CRP Program offers opportunities for interdisciplinary collaboration within the School of Architecture and with programs and research institutes across the University of Texas campus, including the Institute of Latin American Studies, the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center and the Environmental Science Institute. Located in Austin, the state capital, and widely rated as one of America's most desirable places to live, the Program has a long history of research and other collaboration with professionals, public officials and community-based organizations working on planning and related issues in a city known for extensive public involvement and a commitment to sustainable urban development.

Review of applications begins in November 2012. The deadline for submission is November 15, 2012. Applications should include a statement of interest including professional background and current and proposed scholarship, CV, description of courses which the applicant is capable of teaching, a portfolio of work if applicable, and names and contact information for three references.
