Urban Planning and Design

Position Description

Harvard’s Graduate School of Design is seeking applications for a new tenure-track position in the Department of Urban Planning and Design focused broadly on the area of transportation planning and mobility infrastructure. Candidates who examine transportation’s effects on urban and regional growth and who are interested in the relationships between mobility, land use, environment, and infrastructure are especially encouraged to apply. We seek applicants whose academic and practical experiences will interface strongly with ongoing and emergent concerns of the School, including equity and social justice, institutions and implementation processes, the impacts of technology on city form and planning practice, and questions of sustainability broadly defined.

The ideal candidate should be open to teaching in multiple formats (studio courses, workshops, lectures, seminars, project-based learning classes), be familiar with multiple pedagogies and methodologies, including mixed-methods, and be eager to work in an interdisciplinary environment where planning and design research and practice will inevitably span multiple professional domains.

Basic Qualifications

Applicants should hold a Ph.D. or equivalent in planning or a closely related social science field, preferably in addition to a professional degree in urban planning, and should be prepared to teach a wide range of classes related to urban planning issues and methods.

Special Instructions

Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis starting on October 30, 2018.
