CfA: Student/PhD and post-doctoral positions in the project ITEM - Inclusive Transition towards Electric Mobility (ERA NET)

Apologies for cross-posting

Funded PhD and post-doctoral positions at Adam Mickiewicz University and Heksagon Research in Poznań, Poland, deadline April 19th, 2021.

These student/PhD and post-doctoral positions are part of the project ITEM

  • Inclusive Transition towards Electric Mobility, funded by the ERA NET Urban Accessibility and Connectivity

Project description: European cities’ attempts to accelerate the electric mobility (EM) transition are generating environmental benefits and enhancing economic viability. Unclear is how socially just these attempts and their outcomes are in terms of who benefits (distribution), whose needs are considered (recognition), and who gets to decide and how (participation). The proposed research will advance inclusive EM transitions on the urban scale through a dual perspective on households and urban policy. It will examine inequalities in households’ EM-related needs, capabilities, decision-making, accessibility and everyday mobility. It will also analyse how and to what extent EM policies take the aforementioned distribution, procedure (participation) and recognition dimensions into account. It will finally co-produce understandings of how urban and transport planning goals regarding sustainability and accessibility can be strengthened through inclusive EM transition processes. In close collaboration with policymakers and mobility service providers, the project will consider shared and owned/leased electric cars, E-bikes and E-scooters, comparing transition processes in Oslo, Utrecht, Bristol and Poznan. Ultimately, the project aims to bring about a shift in how EM policies and services at the urban scale are developed, implemented and delivered, so that urban EM transition pathways are not only accelerated but also become as inclusive as possible.

Project team: The project is carried out by Adam Mickiewicz University (AMU) in Poznań in consortium with the Institute of Transport Economics in Oslo, the University of Utrecht, the University of Oxford and Heksagon Research. The team consists of leading researchers in the field of transportation and mobility research. Working in the project will provide the candidate with a good opportunity to develop her or his research and organizational skills, gain experience in international context, and develop high-impact academic publications.
