Salary: £41,451 to £47,992 p.a. inclusive
Fixed-term for two years (subject to funding)
LSE Cities is seeking a Research Fellow to develop and lead research that will improve our understanding of the links between city and metropolitan governance and the built environment. This will involve undertaking research on the MacArthur Foundation project, New Urban Governance: Urban complexity and institutional capacities of cities. The successful candidate will play a critical role in expanding LSE Cities’ role as an international centre of research excellence; generating internationally-recognised research on urban governance at the highest level, compatible with the LSE’s multi-disciplinary social science environment.
As well as a completed, or nearly completed, PhD in Public Policy/Management, Political Science or a related discipline, you will have international research experience in urban governance; and high quality published research, including in internationally recognised peer-reviewed academic journals. In addition, you will demonstrate evidence of an understanding of the links between urban governance and its impact on sustainable urban development, quality of life and local democracy. The ability to develop research strategies involving direct links with other institutions, including governmental and community organisations and the private sector, is essential.
