The Taubman College of Architecture and Urban Planning at the University of Michigan invites applications for tenure-track appointment at the assistant/associate level from designers who have demonstrated both dedication and creativity in the fight against the racism through urban design. This position is part of a provost anti-racism hiring initiative, will be part of an urban humanities hiring group, and will benefit from a well-established and university-supported anti-racism research infrastructure. Although prior engagement with Detroit is not a requirement, we hope you will participate in Detroit’s inclusive recovery as an integral part of your design education and research. You are committed to making anti-racism more fundamental in the Taubman College curriculum and to further integrating issues of spatial justice through urban design and planning into the many disciplines promoting anti-racism at the College of literature, science and the arts.
You are someone who values design, has knowledge of applied and theoretical anti-racist practice modalities, and demonstrates an ability to address pressing urban issues through an inclusive lens. Undergraduate and graduate studio teaching in college programs, in addition to foundation and advanced courses based on your area of expertise, will form the core of the teaching requirements for the position.
In addition to a career filled with goals and opportunities, UM offers a comprehensive benefits package to help you stay healthy, protect yourself and your family, and plan for a secure future. Benefits include a pension plan with two-for-one matching contributions after the first year; many choices for comprehensive health insurance; life insurance; long-term disability coverage; and flexible spending accounts for health care and dependent care expenses.
