We are seeking to recruit an outstanding candidate for a post as Lecturer or Senior Lecturer in Planning (dependent on experience).

The Department of Urban Studies and Planning (USP) is a world-leading centre for research and education in planning and a range of urban-focused disciplines. It seeks to further the study of spatial planning and other urban disciplines through high quality research and teaching on its array of research-focused and professionally accredited planning and property courses. The Department celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2015, and has developed over that time widely-recognised and diverse strengths in urban studies, as well as its continuing strong core in spatial planning. The Department is internationally recognised as a centre of research excellence, being ranked as the top planning school in the country in the latest UK government Research Excellence Framework 2014.

Candidates should be able to demonstrate an excellent research trajectory, complementing and enhancing the interests of the Department (including planning; real estate; housing; local economic development; urban design; governance; and participation). We welcome applications from all candidates who are able to deliver excellent research and teaching across urban studies and planning, and are particularly interested in candidates who can lead and develop teaching in the following areas: urban planning, community planning, transport planning, or planning law. You will be expected to produce high quality academic outputs and to secure research grant income within the department, as Principal Investigator (PI) and Co-Investigator (CI). Lecturers are expected to contribute to the Department’s impact agenda through engaging with a range of research users and funders.

You will be expected to lead, develop and teach on undergraduate and postgraduate courses, and to supervise doctoral students.
We are committed to excellence in leadership and management, and are seeking to appoint colleagues who demonstrate ambition to take on leadership and administrative roles in line with grades, contributing to the collective enhancement of the Department.
