A fantastic opportunity is available for junior housing researchers to apply for the Thinkhouse Early Career Researcher’s Prize 2019.
Thinkhouse are pleased to announce that this year’s prize has been launched in Inside Housing. We are very grateful to Altair and L&Q for supporting the £500 award, which is double that of last year.
This prize will give early career housing researchers an opportunity to showcase their work to a wide and influential audience. It is open to UK and non-UK applicants. This is the second year that we have run this competition and last year’s winner, Anya Martin, will be on the judging panel (see her winning paper and media coverage here).
Full entry criteria and details are available at thinkhouse.org.uk. The competition is open to those with up to eight years research experience. Candidates with or without a PhD, and those working within academic or non-academic institutions (the voluntary sector, think tanks, membership organisations, the media, housing associations etc) are welcome to apply. Please note that time spent in doctoral-level research study counts as research experience (as such, entrants who spent three years completing their PhD may have up to five year’s further work experience). Co-authored papers are permitted in cases where all authors meet the entry requirements.
It is our preference that papers have a focus that matches the broad interests of Thinkhouse. This is policy publications that cover ways to increase the amount and quality of the UK’s housing stock and the related economic, social and community benefits of doing so. However, the judging panel will accept papers that they consider are relevant to housing and related issues but please contact us beforehand.
Papers must be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org by the end of September 2019

Thinkhouse.org.uk hosts an accessible online library of the best research and policy publications that cover ways to increase the amount and quality of the UK’s housing stock and the related economic, social and community benefits of doing so. Thinkhouse’s aim is to help inform policymakers who are engaged in understanding how we can build more and better homes and communities, improve knowledge transfer and provide evidence/ideas to drive decision making. It is curated by an independent editorial panel. The overall objective is to provide easy access to a few key reports and provide a home for all relevant work.
