Campus: South Kensington Campus

Job Summary

To undertake teaching activities to support the teaching and learning activities in the Centre for Environmental Policy. The CEP’s long-running course “MSc in Environmental Technology” provides the highest standard of knowledge and skills development for environmental and sustainability specialists. A major emphasis of the course is on the way that environments function and on the compatible tools, alternative technologies and policies for sustainable management.

You will primarily be responsible for co-convening, teaching and learning activities on the “Urban Sustainable Environment” Option (USE) of the MSc in Environmental Technology. You will also teach across our other specialist Options, as appropriate, and help develop new education programmes as part of wider department strategy.

The Urban Sustainable Environments Option (USE). 

This option introduces students to the relationship between urban environments, their functionality and several key aspects of human health. Recognising the challenges of urban growth worldwide, we address the ‘workings’ of cities to identify important and often challenging urban sectors such as energy, water, waste, transport and land use planning, and assess the interplay between the built, natural and social environments. 

Proposed solutions are considered which include technological approaches, such as for smart mobility, land use planning practices such as greenspace provision, transport policies such as active travel infrastructure, and societal engagement to ensure citizen buy-in. In asking ‘how can cities be smart cities?’, the relationships between the individual, government and the environment in each sector considers the participation of these actors in the solutions to urban challenges.
