Are you an ambitious researcher looking for your next challenge? Do you have a background in behaviour or policy research in relation to transport or energy issues? Do you want to further your career in one of the UK’s leading research intensive universities?
Based in the Institute for Transport Studies, you will contribute to three separate studies, each investigating an aspect of transport and energy behaviour or policy. The first is the CREDS (Centre for Research on Energy Demand Solutions) project on 'Excess Demand'. This project examines behaviour in households with the highest energy consumption in the home and for transport. The second is "STEP" (Subsurface Technology for Electric Pathways) funded by Innovate UK in which innovative curbside electric vehicle charging posts will be introduced into two London Boroughs and the users and residents studied in relation to their attitudes and behaviour. Thirdly, "Electricity SATNAV" (Smart Availability Topology of Network for Abundant electric Vehicles) will explore householder attitudes to the buying and selling of domestically generated electricity to electric vehicle users.
Working with Professor Jillian Anable and a wider team of researchers at ITS, you will undertake qualitative research tasks on each of the three projects. You will be responsible for the organisation, design, conducting and analysis of interviews and focus groups as required for each project.
You will have a PhD or be close to being awarded a PhD ( i.e. the initial thesis needs to have been handed in at the point of application), in Geography, Behavioural Sciences, Policy Studies, Transport Studies, Energy studies or a closely allied discipline. You will also have a strong interest in transport and climate change policy in addition to the ability to design, conduct and analyse qualitative research using a range of methods including interviews and focus groups.
