About Virginia Tech:
Virginia Tech is a public land-grant university, committed to teaching and learning, research, and outreach to the Commonwealth of Virginia, the nation, and the world. Building on its motto of UtProsim (that I may serve), Virginia Tech is dedicated to Inclusive VT—serving in the spirit of community, diversity, and excellence. We seek candidates who adopt and practice the Principles of Community, which are fundamental to our on-going efforts to increase access and inclusion, and to create a community that nurtures learning and growth for all of its members. Virginia Tech actively seeks a broad spectrum of candidates to join our community in preparing leaders for the world.
Virginia Tech invites applications for a tenure track position at the assistant or associate professor rank in its Urban Affairs and Planning (UAP) program at its main campus in Blacksburg, Virginia to begin in August 2017. UAP is one of three academic programs in the School of Public and International Affairs (SPIA) in Virginia Tech's College of Architecture and Urban Studies. The other programs are Public Administration and Policy and Government and International Affairs. All three programs operate at the main campus in Blacksburg and at the National Capital Region (NCR) campus in Alexandria, VA.
We seek candidates with teaching and scholarly interests with some combination of data analytics, international development planning, housing and community development, and environmental planning (with an emphasis on environmental justice). Teaching and research responsibilities will be in the UAP undergraduate and graduate programs, including Environmental Policy and Planning (EPP), Public and Urban Affairs (PUA), Master of Urban and Regional Planning (MURP) and the Ph.D. in Planning, Governance and Globalization (PGG).
