Full Text of JOE Listing:

The University of Southern California’s Sol Price School of Public Policy invites applications for a tenure-track faculty position in the area of real estate development at the Associate Professor or Professor level.

Applicants should hold a doctoral degree and demonstrate excellent research and teaching records, appropriate to rank. Preference will be given to those who have research and teaching interests that readily link to the economic, social, demographic, equity and public policy issues associated with real estate development. The specific area of specialization is open.

Diversity, equity, and inclusion are integral to our university’s commitment to excellence in research, engagement, and education. We encourage applications from candidates that identify with groups that are historically underrepresented in real estate development.

The successful applicant will have a close affiliation with the highly regarded Lusk Center for Real Estate, and may be involved with its innovative Ross Minority Program in Real Estate, which provides technical training for those interested in urban redevelopment. Scholars affiliated with the Lusk Center collaborate with industry leaders, public decision makers, and community experts to craft innovative solutions to the day’s pressing real estate development and finance challenges.

Applicants are encouraged from a broad range of disciplines (e.g., economics, business, urban planning, public policy) with a demonstrated capacity to integrate methods and insights across disciplinary boundaries. The School offers an undergraduate major and minor in real estate development, and a Master of Real Estate Development. Our new colleague will contribute to teaching in our real estate development programs at the undergraduate, masters, and doctoral levels. The position includes the possibility of a leadership position within the newly formed Department of Real Estate.

We encourage applicants as a component of their teaching and research statement, to discuss their experience or commitment to engaging with diversity through activities such as fostering an inclusive environment, working with students from diverse backgrounds, or incorporating diverse perspectives.
