Postdoctoral researcher (Urban Geography) 15 Month post.

The Department of Geography in Maynooth University Ireland is looking to appoint a postdoctoral researcher on a 15 month contract post. The postdoctoral researcher will work with Dr. Cian O’Callaghan, who has been awarded an IRC New Horizons grant for the project ‘The new urban ruins: Vacancy and the post-crisis city’.  The project proposes to explore contestations over the reuse of vacant spaces in Dublin.  The central hypothesis is that vacant space will play a key role in determining how cities of the future respond to the both urban problems and wider global challenges. Policy responses have variously promoted the recycling of vacant spaces back into the orbit of property development and financial speculation, or its reuse to create the spatial conditions for alternative types of cities to emerge. The project will explore how geographically-specific responses to, and contestations over, vacancy may lead to either the continuation of the financial model of urban development or to more socially progressive cities.  The project will focus primarily on Dublin, with smaller comparative case-studies in Berlin and Barcelona.

Closing date for applications is 23 November 2015
