Are you interested in working in a top-ranked Planning School, which undertakes ground-breaking research and delivers undergraduate and postgraduate programmes accredited by the RTPI, RICS and CIH?

We are seeking applications from ambitious, highly motivated and talented individuals from across the social sciences who can deliver excellent teaching and research within the broad area of environmental policy, governance and planning. We are particularly interested in applications from candidates with expertise in one or more of: environmental policy and governance; environmental politics and action; environmental planning; climate change; environmental justice; sustainable cities; green infrastructure; environment and health; and ecosystems services, urban ecology and/or nature based solutions.

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. You would be working alongside colleagues with a diversity of research interests and specialisms, who share an overarching mission to enhance our understanding of dynamic cities, and how we might better design, plan, develop and manage them for all citizens.

We build teams of people from different heritages and lifestyles from across the world, whose talent and contributions complement each other to greatest effect. We believe diversity in all its forms delivers greater impact through research, teaching and student experience.
