We are Australia’s largest research facility focused on all aspects of cities and urbanisation
We conduct quality research in collaboration with government, industry and community that aims to address the complex issues cities face throughout Australasia. In short, we do research that helps make cities better places.
Incorporating the Griffith Centre for Coastal Management, our expertise spans a range of academic disciplines, bringing to bear a strong multidisciplinary research capacity ready to understand and meet urban challenges.
GRIFFITH UNIVERSITY POSTDOCTORAL FELLOWSHIPS (GUPF)
Applications for the Cities Research Institute round to the 2020 Griffith University Postdoctoral Fellowships (GUPF) have now closed. This year the GUPF through CRI was for the field of transport only. Applications have been received and the successful applicant has been notified. There will be no further GUPF offered for this year by CRI.
´Welcome to the Cities Research Institute website. We came into existence in November 2016 with a mission to harness the tremendous talent and expertise of researchers at Griffith University who share a passion for helping to make our cities better places.
We know that contemporary cities are increasingly complex and connected places and that what makes them great and what presents them with challenges are also complex and interconnected. And so to address these challenges and uncover the foundations of greatness, we need to bring different disciplinary perspectives to bear.
Within the Institute we can draw on the expertise of architects, civil and coastal engineers, land use and transport planners, urban designers, systems analysts, economists and lawyers and public health specialists.
We are also committed to supporting these experts in working together in multi-disciplinary teams.
If you would like to work with us in identifying new research challenges and opportunities, joining new research teams and translating the results of research into practical outcomes, then please contact me or any of our research leaders listed on this site. We already collaborate with governments, industry and community organisations at all levels both in Australia and the wider Asia-Pacific region and we are always willing to explore new collaborative opportunities.´
