The Institute for Housing and Urban Research (IBF) is a national multidisciplinary social science resource centre. The organizational structure is based on the social science disciplines and on the idea that multidisciplinary research should be solidly rooted in disciplinary competence. Most of the posts are in the disciplines of geography, economics, political science and sociology and in these subjects there are professorships. Other areas are anthropology, economic history and psychology.

The Institute receives base funding from the University. Researchers also apply for supplemantary funding from various sources in Sweden and abroad, often jointly with researchers in other university departments.New projects are presented in the Institute’s Newsletter (in Swedish) and is available on our homepage.
