Job description

Planning at Queen's University Belfast has a very strong reputation for teaching and research, as evidenced by excellent performances in the National Student Survey 2018 (highest ranked Planning School) and the Research Excellence Framework 2014. Our mission is to improve our academic standing nationally and internationally. To help achieve this objective we are recruiting a Lecturer in Spatial Planning who will join a small but dedicated team of established and early career academics.

The successful applicant will join the Planning team in the School of the Natural and Built Environment (SNBE) in delivering professionally accredited courses in Planning. We are interested in recruiting a candidate with excellent knowledge, skills and competencies within the field of Spatial Planning. He/she will be expected to possess a broad understanding of Planning and be able to contribute to our existing portfolio of modules. Additionally, we are looking to consolidate our existing research strengthens within the Planning discipline. Our research strengths lie in areas such as, but not limited to, smart cities; city resilience; public health; climate change; energy transition; urban regeneration; economic development; marine planning; demographic change; the global South. Appointees will be expected to integrate their specialist knowledge within teaching programmes through lecture courses and seminars across the School and wider university.

The School is committed to equality of opportunity and to selection on merit, and we strongly believe in the value and power of diversity. Thus, we particularly welcome applications from currently under-represented groups including candidates who are female, those from Black, Asian and other Minority Ethnic backgrounds, those who are transgender, and disabled people.

In addition, there are dedicated family friendly policies in place within the School to suit parents with childcare requirements.
