Dear colleagues,



I am happy to share an exciting opportunity for PhD research at Technion's Faculty or Architecture and Town Planning, in Haifa, Israel.



As part of my long-term research on the nexus between transport and justice, I am looking for an outstanding PhD candidate to conduct research into the fairness of the transport systems of metropolitan areas in the US.


The research can draw on a large-scale database of 50 metropolitan areas and will combine quantitative methods, GIS analyses and explicitly philosophical perspectives on justice and fairness in the domain of transport. The project part of a research project funded by the Israel Science Foundation.



Specific requirements for potential candidates:

- A master degree in the fields of transport, urban planning,

geography, geosciences or a comparable field.

- Experience with applying quantitative research methods and

GIS-based analysis, in master thesis or comparable research projects.

- Knowledge of R and Python is strongly preferred.

- Critical thinking and an affinity with the social or

philosophical dimensions of transport and transport research.

- Excellent verbal communication and academic writing skills in

English.

- Enthusiasm for research, as evidenced by presentations at

academic conferences or academic publications.



The selected candidate will receive a full-time scholarship, in line with Technion policies. The scholarship commences upon admission to the PhD program and is for a period of 42 months. The height of the monthly scholarship is about NIS 6,000. The research project also includes budget for travel to international conferences to present the results of the research.



Start date: 1 February or asap afterwards.



The research will be conducted at the Technion - Israel Institute of Technology, Israel's leading university. It is home to a thriving world center of research and teaching, with about 13,000 students and 80 graduate programs. The Faculty of Architecture and Town Planning has about 850 students, 350 of them enrolled in graduate studies. The Graduate Program in Urban and Regional Planning is the only accredited urban planning program in Israel.



Please send application before 31 December 2018 to:



Karel Martens
