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 Land/Housing Economics with an expected start date of July 1, 2023. The successful candidate must have the vision and drive to chart new intellectual territory, be committed to developing and/or participating in initiatives and multidisciplinary collaborations that expand the reach and impact of their research, conduct externally-funded research, contribute to the department’s efforts 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. Applicants 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. We welcome applicants who approach urban housing and land markets from a range of methodological and theoretical approaches.
DCRP is historically committed to addressing issues of diversity, equity, inclusion, belonging, and justice (DEIBJ) in its hiring, admissions, and curriculum. We encourage applications from those whose teaching, research, and/or service address DEIBJ issues.
The Department has 16 faculty members, is highly ranked nationally and is particularly well known for its MCP and PhD graduates. For more information about DCRP see .
