Professor of Practice Search 

The Department of City and Regional Planning (CRP) at Cornell University invites applications for a non-tenure-track professor of practice position beginning in fall 2017 with rank commensurate with qualifications. This is a multi-year, renewable position.

The successful candidate will be responsible for developing and leading client-based workshops on environmental and land-use planning for undergraduate and professional master’s degree students in the Department and for teaching complementary courses that impart important practical skills and background knowledge for future practitioners. The department expects that the successful candidate will cultivate and maintain strong professional ties with stakeholder groups and potential clients in Ithaca and Tompkins County, as well as surrounding communities and counties, for the purpose of generating workshop content. The department also expects that the successful candidate will be able to generate funding to support the costs of delivering one workshop per year.

As a member of the department and (it is anticipated) of the graduate field of city and regional planning, the professor of practice is expected to advise undergraduate and master’s degree students on theses and exit projects whose topics fall within the domain of the professor’s expertise.

While the position does not carry a research expectation, research activity is desirable.

The ideal candidate for the professor of practice position should possess graduate and/or professional degrees in planning, landscape architecture, or a related field, have substantial professional experience, and demonstrate a commitment to his or her profession through AICP accreditation, or licensure as a landscape architect, architect or another allied profession. The ideal candidate should also have an extensive and distinguished record in teaching and pedagogical development in planning or a related field. Such distinction must be demonstrated through the applicant’s workshop syllabi, documentation of student work, client deliverables, professional recognitions, as well as demonstration of significant contributions to an academic planning department’s curricular development and instructional environment.

Please submit a curriculum vitae, letter of intent, statement of research and teaching interests, writing sample, and three letters of reference electronically to Academic Jobs Online at Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis beginning January 15, 2017 until a pool of qualified candidates has been identified.
