The Department of City and Regional Planning at Cornell University invites applications for a tenured faculty appointment at the rank of Associate or Full Professor to begin in July 2019. Applicants at the rank of Assistant Professor with advanced standing will also be considered.

We seek applicants with strong publication records in regional science journals and experience teaching core courses in regional science—e.g., industrial location theory, economic impact analysis, CGE modeling, agent-based modeling, or spatial statistical analysis—as well as a course in methods of planning analysis. Applicants should have a record of regular attendance at meetings of the Regional Science Association International (RSAI). It is expected that the successful applicant will become a member of the Graduate Field of Regional Science. The faculty of the Graduate Field includes 25 members from eight academic departments in five colleges of the University.
