Dear All,

Please allow me to draw your attention to 5 exciting Research posts at the GCRF funded centre for sustainable healthy Learning Cities at the University of Glasgow.

Further details are available at: https://www22.i-grasp.com/fe/tpl_glasgow01.asp?newms=jj&id=93815&newlang=1

*****

The centre for sustainable healthy Learning Cities at the University of Glasgow is one of the 37 major projects funded by the Global Challenges Research Fund (GCRF) Research Councils UK Collective Fund, which aims to build upon research knowledge in the UK, and strengthen capacity overseas, to help address challenges in the developing countries (http://www.rcuk.ac.uk/media/news/170721/). 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; and to strengthen research capacity among urban researchers, government officials and policy makers in the public and private sectors both in the UK and in developing countries. The Centre, based at Glasgow, has eight international partners in South Africa, Tanzania, Rwanda, India, Bangladesh, China and the Philippines. The Centre’s research programme will involve neighbourhood level analysis in 14 case study cities located in these countries.
The jobs require expert knowledge in the areas of education, health, or urban studies in relation to developing countries from the perspective of development studies, geography, urban planning, urban studies, migration, public policy, economics or another relevant social science discipline.
 
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 and provision in developing countries
• Health policies and health provision in developing countries
• Quantitative research and analytical skills including social survey, spatial analysis, GIS, Big Data
• Qualitative research and analytical skills and methods
The post-holders will also contribute to the formulation and submission of research publications and research proposals as well as help manage and direct this complex and challenging project as opportunities allow.
