Research Reader/Chair and 2 postdoctoral researchers in Urban Geography
We are delighted to announce that the Human Geography Research Group (HGRG) at the University of Glasgow has three research posts in urban geography: a Research Reader/Chair (five years) and two postdoctoral research positions (grade 6/7, two years). These posts are supported by the Urban Studies Foundation and aim to enhance urban research in the HGRG.
We are looking for researchers who will contribute to, and develop, one or more of our four existing research themes (Knowing, creativity and experiment; Subaltern globalisations; Exploring vital geographies; and Stressed environments and communities; for more information, see our website: http://www.gla.ac.uk/schools/ges/research/humangeographyresearch/)
and to link across to other urban scholars across the University of Glasgow. We particularly encourage applicants whose work is in the areas of urban political economy; comparative and subaltern urbanisms; alternative/progressive urbanisms; urban political ecologies; urban sustainabilities and securities. We strongly encourage applications from scholars who consider urban transformation in a global perspective, alert to the Global South as well as the Global North. A readiness to engage and to co-produce research in a public, participatory fashion with urban communities will be desirable.
The closing date for applications is April 6th 2014
