 This is an exciting opportunity for an ambitious researcher to join a dynamic research consortium coordinated by Imperial College London, and including leading universities as well as policy agencies throughout the world. The work will be based in the Environment and Global Health Research Group at St Mary’s campus, Imperial College. We plan to use methods and tools from a range of disciplines to model the impacts of policy scenarios on the environment and health in cities in high- and low-income countries. We have a particular focus on using emerging data and novel methods to characterise cities’ environment and health, with emphasis on within-city variations and inequalities.

 The person appointed to this important post will have a key role in identifying and implementing the consortium’s data and analytical strategy for using multiple emerging data such as imagery, social media, crowd-sourced and administrative data to measure and understand cities’ social, built and natural environments and how people interact with it. The postholder will apply existing methods or developing new ones, implement and test algorithms and models to characterise the social, natural and physical environment of cities and the health of its people.

 This is a full time, fixed term contact until 31 December 2020, based at the St Mary’s Campus, Paddington
