Our research team at the Institute of Geography of the University of Bern appraises spatial development processes from a political perspective, with a special – but not exclusive – focus on urban land. We analyze institutions, actors' strategies and power games shaping land and land-related resources, in both the Global North and South. We use concepts drawn from public policy analysis, new institutionalism, political ecology, sustainability studies, social and environmental justice, and transformative research.

We invite applications from candidates with the following credentials:
