PhD (or PD) positions LDE Port City Futures (unpaid)
We are aiming to hire three PHD (or two PHD and one PD) to work with the faculty members involved. Together they will develop a methodology that can be repeated in other geographical areas. The group will work within the PortCityFutures context on social, spatial and human values and long-term port city region relations. Specifically, the researchers will identify spatial elements, institutional features and cultural expressions related to port functions. This will include dedicated port facilities (including industries, logistics, etc.), as well as spaces for maritime education, maritime companies, port related health facilities, sailor homes, pleasure districts, musea, etc. They will identify governance patterns, legal structures, port related policies and educational strategies, and document narratives and branding related to ports and port cities as existent in films, novels, and other art work as they promote maritime identities and help develop human capital. The deadline for this call is 1 December 2019. More info is available here.
