Candidates must have the vision and drive to chart new intellectual territory, be committed to developing new initiatives and multidisciplinary collaborations, attract externally-funded research, and demonstrate a strong commitment to teaching excellence.

They are seeking applicants who study critical challenges in urban infrastructure: a set of capital investments, physical flows, and sociotechnical institutions linking people to engineered and planned services such as energy, water, wastewater/sewer, solid waste, information and communication technologies, transportation, parks, and green infrastructure.  The provision of infrastructure services within urban regions requires physical components, but also relies on organizational structures, institutions, and cultures that regulate their function.

They are particularly interested in scholars who approach their research and/or teaching from a comparative and global perspective.  The candidate's research and teaching should ideally emphasize multisector infrastructure planning, and should take account of the complex and interconnected nature of global, regional, and local infrastructure systems as they impact other urban planning concerns such as the built environment, public health, resilience, sustainability, and economic development. Relevant research areas include the relationship of urban infrastructure to equity and social justice, ecological economics; environmental mangement (e.g., green infrastructure); urban design; ecosystem services; slum upgrading; emerging technologies; and climate change mitigation, adaptation and resilience.

They are also interested in candidates who study the history of systems or urban infrastructure and their recent transformation; demand management of urban inftrastructure services; public and private approaches to infrastructure provision; and innovative infrastructure financing.
