Research Fellows - Centre for Sustainable, Healthy and Learning Cities and Neighbourhoods (SHLC) at University of Glasgow

Location: Glasgow

The new GCRF Centre for Sustainable, Healthy and Learning Cities and Neighbourhoods (SHLC) at University of Glasgow is currently recruiting five Research Fellows to join their team.

SHLC will conduct comparative studies of urbanisation and the formation and differentiation of neighbourhoods in cities in order to address the challenges associated with large-scale rural-to-urban migration in Africa and Asia. The Centre, based at Glasgow, has eight international partners in South Africa, Tanzania, Rwanda, India, Bangladesh, China and the Philippines.

These jobs require expert knowledge in the areas of education, health, or urban studies in relation to developing countries from the perspective of development studies, human geography, urban planning, urban studies, migration, public policy or other relevant social science disciplines. Specifically, we expect each of the five posts to contribute specialist knowledge to the Centre in at least one of the following areas:

  • Cities, urbanisation and urban development in Africa, South Asia and/or East Asia
  • Education policy research and provision in developing countries
  • Health policy research and health facility provision in developing countries
  • Quantitative research and analytical skills including social survey, spatial analysis, GIS, Big Data.
  • Qualitative research and analytical skills and methods
