The University of the Arts London is recruiting a Research Fellow to support delivery of an EU funded research project - T-Factor: Unleashing future-facing urban hubs through culture and creativity-led strategies of waiting time.
T Factor challenges the ‘meanwhile’ in urban regeneration, the period over which regeneration masterplans are developed, approved and implemented by the relevant authorities, prior to the regenerated areas being opened to their intended uses and tenants. The project targets early stage regenerations in a diversity of historic urban areas in London, Bilbao, Amsterdam, Kaunas, Milan and Lisbon, and provides their private-public-people partnerships with a unique ecosystem of capacity-building for radically new city-making approaches. The Research Fellow will be working with local government, community, academic and industry partners across two study sites in central London. The Euston redevelopment area will be a ‘Pilot’ site and Kings Cross Central will provide an ‘Advance Case’ affording insights into strategic use of meanwhile time and space, the role and contribution of culture and creative practices, stakeholder involvement and agency and the impacts of these approaches.
Candidates should have a PhD or postgraduate qualification and relevant professional experience in spatial practice, architecture, design, urban planning, or regeneration. Your previous experience will show a substantial undertaking of qualitative and quantitative research, and authoring of academic papers, scientific publications or industry reports. You will have experience of working with diverse stakeholders including local government, industry, higher education institutions and communities. You will also be required to demonstrate relevant experience of public engagement/facilitation.
Interviews will take place on Tuesday 25 and Wednesday 26 August 2020.
