Ryerson University

School of Urban and Regional Planning

Assistant Professor - Indigenous Planning and Design

The Opportunity

The School of Urban and Regional Planning (SURP) in the Faculty of Community Services at Ryerson University in the city of Toronto on the traditional territory of the Anishinaabeg (Mississaugas of the Credit), Haudenosaunee and Huron Wendat invites applications for a full-time, tenure track position at the rank of Assistant Professor commencing July 1, 2020, subject to final budgetary approval. The area of specialization is Indigenous Planning and Design.

Ryerson University supports the 94 Calls to Action in the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s (TRC) final report. A number of the Calls to Action were made to post-secondary education institutions. Ryerson University responded by launching a community-wide consultation which led to the summary report Truth and Reconciliation at Ryerson: Building a Foundation for Generations to Come. In the spirit of, and consistent with our intention to follow through on our TRC commitments, SURP invites applications from Indigenous scholars (First Nations, Inuit or Métis or Indigenous scholars of North America) with expertise in Indigenous Planning & Design.

 

Equity at Ryerson 

At the intersection of mind and action, Ryerson is on a transformative path to become Canada’s leading comprehensive innovation university. Integral to this path is the placement of equity, diversity and inclusion as fundamental to our institutional culture. Our current academic plan outlines each as core values and we work to embed them in all that we do.

Ryerson University welcomes those who have demonstrated a commitment to upholding the values of equity, diversity, and inclusion and will assist us to expand our capacity for diversity in the broadest sense. In addition, to correct the conditions of disadvantage in employment in Canada, we encourage applications from members of groups that have been historically disadvantaged and marginalized, including First Nations, Métis and Inuit Peoples, Indigenous Peoples of North America, racialized people, people with disabilities, and those who identify as women and/or as 2SLGBTQ+ people. 

About SURP

SURP is a significant contributor to planning education in Canada with our professionally accredited undergraduate and Master’s programs. We are well-known for the quality of our applied approach to planning education, especially studio-based teaching and career-ready focus, and our excellent students. We have 15 tenure-stream faculty members. Our experiential learning approach grounds planning education in working with communities, not for them. At SURP we highly value teaching, learning and research that unfolds in partnership with communities, governments, and private sector firms to deliver positive outcomes for more livable communities. Our School prides itself on the excellence of its research and on the quality of its teaching. We are interested in candidates who will contribute to our existing research and teaching strengths by bringing innovative and diverse perspectives and experiences to the work. 

Our studio-based curriculum trains future planners to be agile and responsive to complex, emerging professional urban planning practice. Our current research and creative work address this complexity with efforts that focus on: site planning and development, municipal governance and finance, active transportation, brownfields, ethno-culturally diverse place-based planning and design, immigration and settlement, emerging issues in mobility, real estate economics, public finance, affordable housing, planning with Indigenous communities, landscape infrastructure and ecological processes, ecological design, cities and climate change, and smart city planning.

This position falls under the jurisdiction of the Ryerson Faculty Association (RFA) (www.rfanet.ca). The RFA collective agreement can be viewed here and a summary of RFA benefits can be found here.
