Senior Lecturer in Transport Planning - University of Westminster, London

Published at: 27 September 2018


The School of Architecture and Cities hosts a suite of postgraduate transport and planning courses, including our MSc Transport Planning and Management, which focuses on policy and planning for sustainable transport systems. Related programmes cover urban design, urban planning, and freight transport. The School conducts a variety of funded research programmes for local, national, and international organisations within related areas.

We are looking to recruit a Senior Lecturer to deliver and lead modules on topics to include urban transport planning, quantitative methods and transport economics, and also to supervise postgraduate students. Teaching responsibilities are largely linked to the Transport Planning and Management course. The postholder will join a team of highly qualified, expert and enthusiastic academics, many of whom combine teaching and research activities. They will teach an engaged cohort of postgraduates, many of whom are already working in the sector, helping them to gain an in-depth critical understanding of the principles and practice of transport policy and planning.

The successful candidate will be an excellent teacher who will contribute to our research activities in sustainable urban transport. They will have a PhD or appropriate relevant experience in the profession and/or industry, supported by evidence which demonstrates they are a recognised expert with an authoritative understanding of their specialised field or discipline.
