View All Vacancies

Do you want to further your career by applying your quantitative data analysis and modelling skills as part of a leading research group on transport and energy at the world renowned Institute for Transport Studies? If so, this could be the opportunity for you.

This post-doctoral position aims to understand the potential impacts of automated and connected vehicles and associated changes in travel behaviour, vehicle ownership and shared usage on energy demand and carbon emissions. The work will entail modelling choices in the context of AVs and analysing established national level data such as the National Travel Survey and/or Living Cost and Food Survey, ultimately feeding into an existing energy and carbon emissions model.  

The research project is affiliated to UK Energy Research Centre, Phase 4 (UKERC4). This is a fixed term appointment, but with some potential for extension subject to necessary approvals.
