The School of Social and Political Sciences is seeking to appoint a Senior Lecturer/ Professor with specialism in Southern urbanism based in Urban Studies.
The postholder will play a senior leadership role by conducting internationally excellent research, delivering research-led teaching, and pursuing external engagement. Urban Studies is an internationally leading multidisciplinary group of social scientists. The Subject hosts a large undergraduate programme in social and public policy, a suite of Masters programmes (some professionally accredited) in city planning, real estate, housing, urban transport, urban analytics, and public policy and management, and a well-established doctoral programme part-funded by the Scottish Graduate School of Social Science (ESRC). Urban Studies is home to the UKRI-funded Urban Big Data Centre (UBDC) and the UK Collaborative Centre for Housing Evidence (CaCHE), alongside numerous other grant-funded research programmes. It has developed strong global partnerships, especially through its Centre for Sustainable, Healthy and Learning Cities and Neighbourhoods (SHLC).
The Subject is seeking to consolidate its teaching and research strengths in Southern urbanism, drawing on relevant social sciences including human/urban geography, development studies and urban design and planning. It encompasses alternative urban theory and epistemological practices, postcolonial urbanism, urbanism in diverse geographic territorial contexts of the South, and global comparative (South-South and South-North) analysis.
The postholder will play a significant leadership role in building on existing, and adding new, teaching, research, and impact activity. They will contribute novel theoretical, methodological, empirical and cultural perspectives. They will have the ability to lead significant research programmes and develop and convene taught courses at both UG and PG levels. They will build active external stakeholder relationships that enhance the University’s reputation, advance knowledge exchange, public engagement, and strengthen links with professional bodies.
The postholder will have an opportunity to contribute to the College’s interdisciplinary research themes: Challenges in Changing Cities; Sustainable Development; Digital Society and Economy; Addressing Inequalities; and Justice, Insecurity and Fair Decision Making.
Informal Enquiries should be directed to Prof. Simon Joss, email@example.com
