Opportunity: Lecturer in Urban Studies and Public Policy, De Montfort University

As part of De Montfort University's VC2020 lectureship programme, the Department of Politics and Public Policy is looking to appoint an outstanding early career researcher to a lectureship in public policy, with a specialism in urban studies.

This permanent appointment is one of three new full-time posts the Department will be making in 2016. This post is focused on strengthening the Department's research and teaching expertise in urban and related studies. The post-holder will contribute to the work of the newly established Centre for Urban Research on Austerity (CURA) led by Professor Jonathan Davies. The successful candidate will have a strong emerging research profile, able to contribute to and eventually lead grant applications. They will be able to make a strong contribution to any future REF exercise.

The Department is particularly keen to encourage applications from urbanists working on themes linked to austerity and related concepts, including security, violence, resilience, renaissance, innovation and resistance. They welcome applicants with expertise in fields such as governance, housing and regeneration policy, local economic development and labour markets and sustainable cities. An international or comparative perspective will also be an advantage.
