We invite applications for a PEAK Urban Researcher position, funded by an UKRI GCRF ‘PEAK Urban’ grant based at the Centre on Migration, Policy and Society (COMPAS), University of Oxford. This position is available on a fixed-term basis for 12 months (with a possible 12 months extension subject to external funding).

You must have interesting ideas about how the research questions might be answered. You will have excellent communication skills, competence to work in at least one of the international research partner countries (Colombia, China, India, South Africa), the ability to manage your own academic research and administrative activities, and be able to provide guidance to junior members of the research group and occasionally teach.

We are looking for someone who can address one or more of these research themes: contested migrant rights to the city; migrant strategies in new urban contexts; dynamics of technological change for understanding migrant urbanisms; experimental urban methodologies and new mobilities; the consequences of technological change for migrant networks and emergent urban forms; and the possibilities of comparative urban research.

We particularly welcome researchers with an interest in making a contribution to the following research priority areas: gendered cities and migrant urbanisms; public goods and private lives.
