RESEARCH GROUPS 

Urban Futures is one of Northumbria’s Interdisciplinary Research Themes bringing together expertise from across the University to address pressing regional, societal and global challenges. Urban Futures is working to improve quality of life and sustainability in urban areas, taking a fundamentally human-centred approach to challenges that include rapidly changing population demographics, housing, mobility, service provision, health and wellbeing, public order, community cohesion and inclusiveness, environmental footprint, uneven urban development, and climate change. 

We are seeking to appoint researchers with exceptional track records to help drive forward the work within this research theme. Appointed Fellows can be based in any discipline relevant to the challenges above, including the built environment, transport, environmental science, human geography, computer and data science, interaction design, policy development, health informatics, and politics and economics.

The CDT for Citizen-Centred AI (CCAI) is one of twelve new UKRI Centres for Doctoral Training (CDTs) focused on the applications and implications of artificial intelligence (AI). The goal of CCAI is to make AI work for citizens, as well as government and businesses, by embedding citizen engagement in the design, evaluation, and governance of AI systems in ways that prioritise peoples’ thoughts, needs, rights, and aspirations. Our students’ research will span multiple disciplines including AI and data science, participatory and co-design, digital civics, human computer interaction, ethics and legal frameworks, politics and social science. 

We are seeking to appoint researchers with exceptional track records to help drive forward our work within citizen-centred AI
