The Centre for Urban Research
at RMIT University seeks highly capable scholars to undertake PhD studies
on urban questions.

The CUR is one of Australia’s leading centres for multi-disciplinary
research on urban questions. Collectively CUR staff produce new critical
and applied knowledge for scholarly, policy, and civic communities that
seeks to understand urban life and improve how we manage cities and provide
for inclusive and sustainable urbanisation. We do this with enthusiasm and
commitment to a better global urban future.

Our group of more than 45 researchers includes many experts in their
international fields. This expertise is focused and coordinated via
seven Research
Programs*: Planning and Transport in City Regions; Urban Cultures and
Technologies; Housing and Urban Economies; Critical Urban Governance;
Climate Change Adaptation; Beyond Behaviour Change; and Interdisciplinary
Conservation Science*. We are able to accommodate a wide array of research

the world’s most liveable and most student-friendly cities.  Melbourne is
