Applications are invited for a temporary post of a UCD Post-doctoral Research Fellow Level 1 within School of Architecture, Planning and Environmental Policy

The `new normal' of remote and hybrid working presents an opportunity for enhanced urban health and wellbeing by consolidating the localisation of work, services and recreation in walkable neighbourhoods. High-quality user-responsive public green spaces are key to realising this opportunity. However, there is currently a divergence between the aspirations of green space users and how such areas are planned, designed and managed.

The goal of the `Green Space Engage' project is to produce an innovative knowledge co-creation methodology that addresses this societal challenge. Grounded in a novel theoretical approach, the project will adopt an innovative synergy of research strengths by academic staff in the UCD School of Computer Science and the UCD School of Architecture, Planning and Environmental Policy (APEP).

The project will work with local communities and key decision-makers to co-create new knowledge on green space perceptions. This new knowledge will inform the co-production of planning, design and management guidance for public urban green spaces. The project is funded by the Irish Research Council under the COALESCE programme.
