Visiting scholar, Urban Studies - 2019BAPFLWEF181Posted by: University of Antwerp
Posted date: 2019-Jun-21
The Urban Studies Institute (USI) at the University of Antwerp, Belgium, conducts interdisciplinary research on urbanization and urban issues. It offers a platform for sociologists, historians, urban planners, engineers, geographers and transport economists as well as for ecologists, health scientists, literary, cultural and communication scholars who all strongly invest in an integrated approach. Research at the institute focusses on a diverse range of issues. It includes research on sustainability, such as the urban environment, the urban metabolism and the relation between nature and urban infrastructure; research on the urban economy and the related issues of inequality and mobility; political participation, civil society, and solidarity; urban identities, citizenship and the representation of the city; and research on immigration, integration and mechanisms of inclusion and exclusion. The historical dimension is important for integrating the different disciplines at the USI.
For the disciplines and research groups involved, see our website.
The USI is currently looking for two full-time visiting scholars (one junior and one senior) for a short term research stay at the University of Antwerp in 2020. The selected scholars will be offered the opportunity to conduct their research at the USI and to participate at the institute’s research activities. They will be facilitated to 1° communicate their research plans and results to the interdisciplinary research community of the USI, 2° receive feedback from a select interdisciplinary group of scholars and 3° enter into an intensive dialogue with a broad range of disciplinary approaches.
