New York University
United States


The Schack Institute of Real Estate (Schack) at the NYU School of Professional Studies (NYU SPS) invites applications for a full-time non-tenure faculty position beginning January 2020 or September 2020. The rank of the position will depend on experience and qualifications. The Schack Institute currently has a particular interest in candidates with backgrounds in real estate finance and investment, construction and development, urbanism, real estate entrepreneurship and innovation, technology and data analytics, and Chinese real estate markets.

Faculty appointments are for nine months, and are renewable based on performance. Full-time faculty are active contributors to the research and pedagogical missions of the Institute and are expected to teach three degree courses per semester. Faculty with significant administrative or research appointments may have a reduced teaching load. In addition to teaching, each faculty member assists with student advising and activities, curriculum planning, applied research, mentoring adjunct faculty, and nurturing industry relationships. 

The Schack Institute is among the largest and most prestigious educational entities dedicated to the real estate and construction industries. It offers three Master of Science degrees and a Bachelor of Science in Real Estate degree. The graduate degrees include the MS in Real Estate, the MS in Construction Management, and the MS in Real Estate Development. In addition to the New York campus, the Institute recently announced a major expansion into China.

About the Schack Institute

The Schack Institute of Real Estate was founded in 1967 at the initiative of prominent members of the New York City real estate community. They encouraged NYU to establish an academic center that would provide a world-class education for industry professionals. More than 50 years later, Schack is at the forefront of real estate education and is recognized globally as one of the world’s leading centers of real estate research and pedagogy.

Across the Institute’s graduate degree programs—notably the MS in Real Estate, the MS in Construction Management, and the MS in Real Estate Development—as well as a rapidly expanding undergraduate degree program, enrollment has grown to more than 800 full- and part-time students from across the United States and nearly 50 other countries. In addition to its flagship degree programs, thousands of working professionals enroll in the Schack Institute’s executive education and career advancement programs each year.

An anchor of real estate academia’s engagement with industry, the Institute is home to the REIT Center, the Center for the Sustainable Built Environment, and the recently established Urban Lab. In addition, the Institute hosts global industry events, including annual conferences on real estate capital markets, the REIT sector, and women in real estate. Under the direction of the Schack Institute’s faculty, ongoing applied research at the Institute spans an exceptional range of issues in real estate development and investment, urban economics, and market structure and regulation.




The successful candidate will hold a doctorate or other terminal degree (ABDs will be considered), preferably in economics, applied economics, urban economics, finance, real estate, or a related field. Ideal candidates will have relevant industry experience and a record of excellence in teaching in a selective university environment.
