Early Career Housing Network

At the UK Collaborative Centre for Housing Evidence (CaCHE) we are committed to supporting and nurturing the future generation of housing scholars. We understand the challenges of starting out in academia, but also the opportunities that come from the supportive networks available.

For this reason, CaCHE has established a dedicated network for PhD students, early career researchers and early career practitioners and policy professionals. We work alongside other organisations, such as the Housing Studies Association and the White Rose Doctoral Training Partnership, to ensure as many different opportunities are widely available to everyone.

ECR Virtual Network

We have created a virtual space for our early career housing network via Slack. Here is the link to join. This is an informal space for ECRs to drop in, ask questions, share ideas or work and we will use it to promote ECR opportunities.

This is open to all early career colleagues across academia, policy and practice.


Secondment opportunity

CaCHE is delighted to offer an exciting opportunity for a social sciences researcher to work across academia and the private sector to help develop a shared vision for housing and placemaking in the north and midlands of England. This secondment provides an excellent opportunity to develop experience in applied knowledge exchange and research work which bridges academia and the private sector.
