Funded PhD Studentship in Urban Studies
The School is pleased to offer a funded studentship for doctoral research, based in the Global Urban Research Unit (GURU). The studentship, to begin in October 2016, is part of a major investment by the University in interdisciplinary urban studies.
The PhD will be supervised by Professor Roger Burrows, newly appointed Professor of Cities, and Professor Steve Graham. The studentship is for research in any area of substantive empirical urban studies that could be supervised by Burrows and Graham, however preference is likely to be given to candidates able to offer a credible proposal critically examining contemporary developments in digital (and other) technologies in relation to the built environment, urban infrastructures, mobilities and the contemporary city more generally. Critical work on the smart city, digital civics, big data, social urbanism, the sharing economy, urban science and so on, would be especially welcome.
A new post-doctoral research associate will be appointed at the same time to work in this area of research and, together, we hope to form a critical mass of researchers, at different career stages, working on a broadly common research agenda.
