FYI:LSE Cities Vacancy: Researcher or Research Officer - New Urban Governance project

Deadline: 17.30, Friday 6 Febrary 2015
LSE Cities is seeking a Researcher or Research Officer for its project on New Urban Governance: Urban complexity and institutional capacities of cities. This project is part of LSE Cities’ urban governance research strand and is co-funded by the MacArthur Foundation. The Researcher/Research Officer will report to Dr Nuno Ferreira da Cruz who is coordinating this project. The successful candidate will play an important role in expanding LSE Cities’ research on governing cities and generating internationally-recognized research on urban governance compatible with the LSE’s multi-disciplinary social science environment.

The project’s focus refers to currently emerging governance regimes in cities triggered by a historic conjuncture of the ongoing devolution of decision making powers to cities on the one hand and unprecedented urban challenges on the other. This initiative envisions examining multiple aspects of municipal planning, management, and governance. At its heart is the realisation that cities have to increasingly rely on advanced institutional capacities, democratic governance and effective management to address ever more complex and interrelated economic, social and environmental challenges while tapping into the potential benefits of new technological opportunities.

Candidates for Researcher level will have an MSc in Public Policy/Management, Political Science or a related discipline and substantial research experience relevant to the New Urban Governance project.

Candidates for Research Officer level will have a PhD in Public Policy/Management, Political Science or a related discipline.
