Cities Economist

DEADLINE: 28 November 2018

As an IGC Cities Economist you will work with a growing network of researchers, policymakers and practitioners in building and applying policy-relevant knowledge on urban policy.

You will liaise with IGC Country and Communications teams in organising Cities that Work workshops and global events to disseminate content and encourage peer-to-peer knowledge exchange. You will also support on the development of a Cities that Work executive education course at the Blavatnik School of Government in 2019, which can then be franchised globally for public policy schools.

You will need a postgraduate degree in (ideally development) economics or related discipline, with an ability to undertake policy analysis. In addition you will have excellent communication skills, with the ability to present research proposals and results, write up findings for a policy audience, and represent the programme at meetings. You will have a collaborative working style, be able to manage your own research and to deliver projects on deadline. Knowledge on cities and urbanisation and a doctorate in a relevant discipline are desirable.
