  英国利兹大学交通研究与交通政治经济学博士后招聘

  Job Description

  Are you an ambitious researcher looking for your next challenge? Do you have a background in Transport Studies and Political Economy of Transport?  Do you want to further your career in one of the UK’s leading research intensive Universities?

  We are currently seeking to appoint a Research Fellow to participate in a radical and visionary research project aiming to understand how to energy use relates to human well-being. The focus of the postdoctoral research project will the comparative study of the provisioning system of transport across multiple countries.

  Affiliated to the Sustainability Research Institute in the School of Earth and Environment at the University of Leeds, you will be working on the recently funded Leverhulme Research Leadership project “Living Well Within Limits (LiLi).” As part of this project, you will be expected to conduct original research, resulting in academic publications as well as communication to broader audiences, including policy and industry stakeholders. You will be part of a larger research group led by Dr Julia Steinberger, and your work will be done in collaboration with other postdoctoral and postgraduate researchers. There will also be opportunities to contribute to wider research and teaching initiatives across the School and Faculty.

  The research consists in in depth analysis of the systems that provision personal transport in several case study locations, highlighting performance in terms of access, affordability and equity. Concerns regarding transport access and transport justice are guiding research in developed as well as developing countries (Lucas et al, 2016). Personal transport plays a key role in enabling access to essential services, such as healthcare and education (Mattioli, 2016).

  Studying how personal transport provisioning is organised is critical to understanding how and why sufficiency is unmet or over-provisioned. The methodology proposed here is Systems of Provision (Fine & Leopold 1993, Fine 2002), recently applied within the EU FESSUD project to the role of finance in housing and water provision (Bayliss et al., 2013). Familiarity with this approach is important to this post.
