Glen Searle is Adjunct Associate Professor in Planning in the Faculty of Architecture, Design and Planning. He retired as Associate Professor in Planning at the University of Queensland at the end of 2014. He was previously Director of the Planning Program at the University of Technology, Sydney. His research has mainly focused on an institutionally-based understanding of planning outcomes in Australian cities, especially Sydney, with particular emphases on strategic planning and urban consolidation.
A second focus has been planning and the contemporary economy of Australian cities, with the monograph Sydney as a Global City being published in 1996. In the first half of his career he held several urban policy and planning-related positions with the New South Wales and UK governments, including Deputy/Acting Manager Policy while employed in the NSW Department of Planning from 1981-1991. He was Chief Editor of Urban Policy and Research journal from 2004 to 2014..
Assoc. Prof. Glen Searle will be a Chief Investigator on two ARC Discovery Projects that were successful in the recently announced 2017 funding round. The projects, which are being led by Dr Yan Liu (University of Queensland) and Prof. Matthew Tonts (University of Western Australia), respectively, will focus on sustainable coastal city development, and the globalisation of the resource sector(s) in Australia cities.
