The UNC School of Government seeks to hire a tenure-track assistant professor to specialize in land use law 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).
