The Department of Urban Studies and Planning (DUSP), in collaboration with the Schwarzman College of Computing at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in Cambridge, MA, has established a new joint faculty position that connects three pillars for building a Healthy Planet: Urban Planning, Computation, and Equity. The successful candidate will have a demonstrated interest in the equitable design of computation tools and their use in planning practice that will advance racially and socially just solutions for planetary health and health equity. We are especially interested in candidates whose research focuses on marginalized or under-represented communities, particularly African American and Indigenous communities. This is a full-time, tenure-track (pretenure) faculty position at the rank of assistant or associate professor, commensurate with experience. The faculty appointment will begin July 1, 2021, or on a mutually agreed date thereafter. The successful candidate would have a shared appointment in both the Department of Urban Studies and Planning and also the Schwarzman College of Computing, in either the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (EECS), or in the Institute for Data, Systems, and Society (IDSS).
