The Bartlett School of Planning at UCL is a research-led planning school with an international reputation, offering innovative planning and built environment teaching programmes at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels.

The School is seeking to appoint a Lecturer (Grade 8) or Associate Professor (Grade 9) in Urban Planning.

The School has a long tradition of teaching and research in the fields of planning history and the history of planning thought, exemplified in the work of Professor Sir Peter Hall and Professor Michael Hebbert. Research and teaching in these areas often focused on the role of planning in leading large-scale urban transformation, in the form of new towns and garden cities, or urban regeneration. The priority for this post is to rebuild capacity in these areas, focused on lessons for urban transformation that can be gained from a historical perspective and the application of lessons to future urban transformations and regeneration. The appointee is likely to lead on teaching in these areas and will cover modules on planning history, urban regeneration and large-scale urban projects.

The successful candidates will be expected to make a full contribution to the School’s educational mission and, specifically, to teaching at undergraduate and postgraduate levels, and research, in the areas of planning history and urban transformations and regeneration.

For appointment at either Grade 8 or 9, the post-holder will have an awarded PhD in urban planning or related subject. For all grades, they will have experience of lecturing, studio-based teaching and / or leading seminars. They will also be able to demonstrate success in the supervision of student projects, including PhD research for Grade 9. They will also have experience of coordinating teaching modules (Grades 8 and 9) and designing and coordinating programmes (Grade 9).

In terms of personal research, a proven ability to secure external research funding and lead on the dissemination of that research through contributions to peer-reviewed journals is essential. Appointment at Grade 9 will require evidence of securing research funding as PI and a publication track-record that evidences a trajectory towards international excellence in their field. Irrespective of grade, the appointee will already have a strong output profile for REF2021.
