We seek someone who can contribute to interdisciplinary research initiatives and to planning-related programs across campus, has demonstrated skills in GIS, in geographical planning with a sustainability focus, and is eager to build a nationally competitive, externally-funded research and teaching program that supports undergraduate/graduate education.
