Position overview
Anticipated start: July 1, 2023 Application Window

Open September 6, 2022 through Monday, Nov 14, 2022 at 11:59pm (Pacific Time)

Position description

The Department of City and Regional Planning (DCRP) at the University of California, Berkeley, seeks applications for an open rank (Assistant, Associate, or Full Professor) faculty position in Urban Housing and Land Economics. The successful candidate must have the vision and drive to chart new intellectual territory, be committed to developing and/or participating in new initiatives and multidisciplinary collaborations that expand the reach and impact of their research, attract externally-funded research, contribute to the department's commitment to promote diversity and inclusion in higher education and demonstrate a strong commitment to excellence in teaching, service, and research.

We seek a scholar who addresses housing or land markets through an urban lens. We are particularly interested in scholars examining how housing and land use intersect with issues of urban inequality, segregation, racism, economic development, housing affordability, climate change, and/or fiscal policy, and whose work includes global or comparative perspectives. While we welcome applicants who approach urban housing and land markets from a range of methodological and theoretical approaches, they should be able to teach a core course in urban economics, along with courses aligned with their specific areas of interest, such as housing, real estate development, urban public finance, spatial analytics, economic development, and research methods, among others.

Diversity, equity, inclusion, belonging, and justice (DEIBJ) are core values at UC Berkeley and in DCRP. Our excellence can only be fully realized by faculty, students, and academic and non-academic staff who share our commitment to these values. DCRP is historically committed to addressing DEIBJ issues in its hiring, admissions, and curriculum. We encourage applications from those whose teaching, research, and/or service address DEIBJ issues. All successful candidates for our academic positions will demonstrate evidence of a commitment to advancing equity, inclusion, and belonging.

The Department currently has 16 faculty members along with a number of lecturers. There are 127 master's students, 34 doctoral students and 94 undergraduate students in urban studies. DCRP is highly ranked nationally and particularly well known for its MCP and PhD graduates. There are strong connections to other departments on campus including geography and civil engineering. For more information about DCRP see https://ced.berkeley.edu/city.

The department is committed to addressing the family needs of its faculty, including dual career couples and single parents. We are also interested in candidates who have had non-traditional career paths or who have taken time off, or who have achieved excellence in careers outside academia.
