Research Associate (6-month maternity cover) - Institute of Place Management.

Based within the Business School, The Institute of Place Management (IPM) is the professional body and learned society for people who make better places. Owned and operated by Manchester Metropolitan University, but with its own constitution to improve standards of place management and support the professional development of the people who serve places, the IPM leads the Government's High Streets Task Force. This major initiative provides training, advice and insight to place leaders and place partnerships across England. The IPM also operates Communities of Practice, the most significant of these being The BID Foundation, the industry body for Business Improvement Districts. IPM also leads a number of projects investigating the changing nature of town centres and high streets, runs a successful MSc in Place Management and Leadership, and publishes the Journal of Place Management and Development, in partnership with Emerald.

Role
We are looking for an experienced researcher who will conduct internationally recognised research in place management to support research projects led by Professor Cathy Parker and Dr Steve Millington. The role will be to cover a 9-month maternity leave.

You will work collaboratively with the Directors of IPM and other members and partners on research projects, assisting in primary research, producing research outputs, and developing new and existing research partnerships. Working independently, under the guidance of the Principal Investigator(s), you will develop and apply quantitative and qualitative research techniques, analyse data, prepare results for publication and dissemination, and present findings at conferences and stakeholder events.

Ideal Candidate
The successful candidate will have a PhD, be near completion, or have significant CPD and research experience in Place Management. They will also have evidence of producing high quality outputs, ideally to a mix of academic and non-academic audiences, and a commitment to working collaboratively. We are looking for candidates with considerable experience of using quantitative and qualitative research methods and analysing data, and with the ability to communicate research outcomes effectively, orally and in writing, to a diverse range of research end-users. You will have the ability to plan and organise research activities, and to work effectively within a research project team.

For an informal discussion regarding the requirements of the role please contact Dr Steve Millington (s.millington@mmu.ac.uk).
