The School of Geography and Development seeks a tenure-eligible Assistant Professor in spatial statistics and quantitative methods who will advance the School’s research in the use of such methods to address pressing social, political, and economic issues in cities. Research priorities are for a scholar using data science and/or modelling to analyze complex, large data sets, such as population or Census, Smart Cities, finance, policing and emergencies, transportation, logistics, communications, energy or sustainability. We may show preference for applicants whose research aligns with the School’s cross-cutting initiatives in Future Geographies or Environmental and Social Justice.
The Assistant Professor will teach a mix of undergraduate and graduate courses in quantitative methods and in topical areas to support our programs in Urban and Regional Development and Geographic Information Systems and Technology. Instructional duties may involve a mix of in-person and on-line offerings. The appointee will also participate in the activities of the Graduate Interdisciplinary Program in Statistics. The distribution of effort will normally be 40% Research, 40% Teaching, and 20% Service.
