New job

September 1, 2015

New St Signal Box (c) 2012 Max Nathan

Some news! I’m starting a new job at Birmingham University in October, based in the Business School.

I’m going to be a Senior Birmingham Fellow in Regional Economic Development. This is basically an Assistant Professor position, but focused on research until 2020 after which it converts to a regular tenured slot. So it’s a lovely thing to have.

I’ll be working on a bunch of projects looking at technology ecosystems and clusters across the UK and further afield, as well as helping out with the new City-REDI initiative. More details on those soon. I’m also planning to continue research on diversity and migration, with new colleagues at the Institute for Research into Superdiversity. And I’m looking forward to kicking off new ideas with colleagues in Geography, Economics and elsewhere on campus.

In true academic fashion I’m keeping my LSE affiliation, and will continue at the What Works Centre there. I’m also becoming a visiting fellow at NIESR.
