The candidate must have significant experience in college-level teaching in the field and a minimum of five years of industry experience in real estate development in a variety of settings and from multiple perspectives, including both public and private sectors.

The candidate’s research accomplishments and/or distinguished record of real estate development experience must qualify the person for appointment to the rank of Assistant or Associate Professor.
