Assistant Professor in Land Use Law & Planning

University of North Carolina Chapel Hill

United States

 

Position Summary

The UNC School of Government seeks to hire a tenure-track assistant professor to specialize in land use and planning. The faculty member will focus on the core substantive areas of zoning, land subdivision, related development regulations, and city and county planning.

These core areas of land use law involve wide-ranging and substantial legal issues, including local ordinance adoption and interpretation, permitting and enforcement, statutory authority and state preemption, and Constitutional limitations. Several other fields are intertwined with these core areas, including planning policy, local environmental law, transportation planning, and code enforcement.

The faculty member will write for, advise, plan courses for, and teach North Carolina local and state government officials, including planning and zoning officials, city and county attorneys and managers, elected local government officials, citizen boards (such as planning boards, boards of adjustment, historic preservation commissions), legislators, legislative staff, citizens, the media, and others interested in these legal topics. Work is centered in Chapel Hill, but requires occasional travel and consultation around the state. Faculty appointments are year-round (rather than for the 9-month academic year).

The School of Government recognizes the importance of an educational and work environment in which all individuals are respected and valued. To that end, we are strongly committed to hiring and retaining a diverse workforce. For more information about the School’s commitment to diversity, please visit our Diversity and Inclusion page: https://www.sog.unc.edu/resources/microsites/diversity-and-inclusion.

Established as the Institute of Government in 1931, the School of Government UNC-Chapel Hill has 46 faculty members and its mission is to improve the lives of North Carolinians through engaged scholarship that helps public officials understand and improve state and local government.
