Clemson University’s City Planning and Real Estate Development department is seeking a tenure-track faculty member to begin an appointment in August 2018. We anticipate hiring at the Assistant Professor level. Teaching will primarily be in the department’s Master of City and Regional Planning program, although the candidate may also teach at the undergraduate level and in the university’s Planning, Design and the Built Environment doctoral program. Teaching responsibilities are commensurate with those of a research-oriented program.

Clemson’s MCRP program was founded in 1968 and is ranked by Planetizen as one of the nation’s top small city planning programs. Clemson University is a Carnegie Foundation-classified Doctoral-Highest Research Activity (R1) institution, and the university offers many opportunities for cross-disciplinary collaboration.

The university is in the Upstate region of South Carolina, and its location along a chain of lakes and in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains features many opportunities for outdoor recreation. Clemson is located in the Greenville, SC metropolitan area, which is widely recognized as one of the nation’s most attractive, dynamic, best-planned, and livable small-to-mid-sized cities. Asheville, NC; Atlanta; Charlotte; and Charleston, SC and the South Carolina coast are all within easy driving distance.

The ideal candidate will have a strong research agenda, exhibit the promise to be a successful teacher, show a potential to raise external funding, have an interest in community engagement, and have a dedication to diversity, inclusivity and excellence in higher education. The candidate should have a PhD in city planning or a closely related field by the time of the appointment. We will consider qualified candidates in any specialization related to city planning, but are particularly interested in candidates who specialize in land use planning, physical planning, or community development (particularly for underserved communities).
