Geography and Planning

The population of England is ageing. While this population may present an untapped demographic dividend, it will equally challenge the fiscal sustainability of service provision. This role presents an exciting opportunity to join a Nuffield Foundation funded research project seeking to better understand the geography of opportunities and challenges our ageing population presents. Based in the Geographic Data Science Lab at the University of Liverpool, the postholder will join PI Dr Fran Darlington-Pollock, and Co-Is Dr Les Dolega, Dr Rich Dunning and Professor Alex Lord.

You will work closely with the PI and Co-Is to: (1) develop a bespoke geodemographic classification of the older population of England; (2) explore the potential to use the bespoke classification to enhance small area estimation of key outcomes for older populations in England; (3) combine geodemographic indicators within a microsimulation to explore housing need in the Liverpool City Region Combined Authority; and finally (4) establish the potential for the geodemographic classification to better target local delivery of services for older people in the Liverpool City Region. In addition, the postholder will support the development and production of research outputs, policy workshops and wider dissemination activities.

Applicants should have a PhD in Quantitative Social Science, Geographic Information Science, Computer or Data Science, or other related quantitative discipline / or equivalent professional experience. The post is available for 2 years.
