About the Role

The Bartlett School of Planning at UCL is a research-led planning school with an international reputation. The School is seeking to appoint a Research Fellow (Grade 7) for 36 Months to work on an ORA-ESRC funded project entitled: ‘What is Governed in Cities [WHIG]?: Residential Investment Landscapes and the Governance and Regulation of Housing Production’. The project draws on a precise comparative, inter-disciplinary methodology to examine the inter-relationships between contemporary investment flows into the housing markets of major cities and the governance arrangements and public policy instruments that are designed to regulate them. Our case studies are three of Europe's leading urban centres: the Amsterdam Metropolitan Area; Greater London; and Grand Paris. It draws on two streams of analysis. First we examine investment landscapes and the effectiveness of regulations and policy instruments that are designed to control them. We do this systematically and comparatively. Second we analyse the types of investment that are shaping housing markets and their impacts on people and places. We explore its sources, objectives, and designed outcomes. The post is for 36 months, commencing 1st March 2019 or as soon as possible. The post-holder will be based at UCL and will principally undertake work on and in Greater London. They should have expertise in the fields of urban development planning, real estate and property markets, housing regulation, financialisation, and other related fields will be considered. The candidate will be expected to support the UCL WHIG team in undertaking all Work Packages as set out in the funded proposal brief.
