        Dalhouise University
        School of Planning

        Tenure-stream Assistant Professor in Planning

        The School of Planning at Dalhousie University invites applications for a tenure-stream Assistant Professor position, starting in July 2017.

        Dalhousie University, located in the heart of Halifax, Nova Scotia, is one of Canada's top comprehensive research and teaching universities. Halifax occupies an unsurpassed natural setting on the Atlantic coast and is the academic, cultural, and economic centre of Atlantic Canada.

        The School of Planning is one of two constituent schools in the Faculty of Architecture and Planning. The School serves the Atlantic Region of Canada as the only professional planning school east of Quebec. The School has a current enrollment of 40 graduate and 150 undergraduate students. It offers graduate and undergraduate professionally accredited planning degrees (Bachelor of Community Design honors and Master of Planning), an undergraduate degree in community design and a research-based graduate degree (Master of Planning Studies). The School of Planning seeks to advance the academic discipline and profession of planning through teaching, research and community service. We see planning as a broad and collaborative enterprise which brings together diverse interests to create rich and vibrant communities. For us, the essential ingredients of planning are land and environmental concerns, people and social context, and settlement as reflected in built form.

        The School is looking for a new faculty member at the Assistant Professor level with a focus on teaching and research in planning history and theory. Other desired teaching and research areas are policy planning, land development, land economics, or community engagement. Familiarity with visual representation techniques, and experience with instructing professional writing and communication skills, would be assets.

        Applicants must have a professional degree in planning. A successful candidate will have a Ph.D. in planning or a relevant field. However, practicing planners without a Ph.D. and a demonstrated track record of innovative, leading-edge practice may also be considered for this position. Being a registered or licensed professional planner (RPP or LPP, for instance), as recognized by the planning profession in Canada, is an asset. The successful candidate will have a clearly articulated and directed research focus, and demonstrated promise in research and scholarship. The candidate should clearly identify evidence of successful teaching ability: this may include teaching assistant experience.

        The new faculty member will be expected to teach core and elective course in the graduate and undergraduate programs and supervise students, advance the discipline through research or practice, and actively engage in administrative functions to shape the School's future. In keeping with the School's present strengths and directions, the ability to engage in community-based research practice is an asset. We expect the person in this position to be comfortable in an interdisciplinary setting, demonstrate leadership in collaborative activities, and bring innovative ideas to planning research and teaching.

        For more information about the School of Planning, Dalhousie University and Halifax, please go to these websites:

        The review of applications will commence on 8 February 2017.

        Candidates should provide a statement of their teaching and research interests, examples of peer reviewed published work, a CV, and three letters of reference (forwarded, under separate cover, directly to the committee by the referees). All qualified candidates are encouraged to apply; however, Canadians and permanent residents will be given priority.

        Dalhousie University is committed to fostering a collegial culture grounded in diversity and inclusiveness. The university encourages applications from Aboriginal people, persons with a disability, racially visible persons, women, persons of minority sexual orientations and gender identities, and all candidates who would contribute to the diversity of our community.

We also anticipate that the new hire would expand professional development opportunities for our undergraduates through, for example, new and enhanced co-op learning initiatives with community, government, and industry partners to ensure student job readiness upon degree completion.

        Teaching in physical geography (including environmental management) in the department plays an important role in the BASc degree in Environment and Society and in the BSc degree in Environmental Earth Sciences, the latter of which leads to professional accreditation with the Association of Professional Engineers and Geoscientists of Saskatchewan (APEGS). Physical geography also contributes to the training of undergraduate students in other programs, both within our College (e.g., BSc degrees in Geology and Environmental Biology) and in other Colleges (e.g., BSc in Renewable Resource Management and BSA in Environmental Science, College of Agriculture and Bioresources; and the Certificate of Proficiency in Sustainability, SENS).

        The College of Arts & Science offers a dynamic combination of programs in the humanities and fine arts, the social sciences and the sciences. There are over 8,000 undergraduate and graduate students in the College and 325 faculty, including 12 Canada Research Chairs. The College emphasizes student and faculty research, interdisciplinary programs, community outreach and international opportunities.

        The University of Saskatchewan, situated in Saskatoon, SK, is a major research intensive institution of about 21,000 students on what is considered the most pleasant university campus in Canada. Saskatoon is a growing, vibrant city with a richly diverse natural and built environment.
