PhD in Transport and Mobility Systems [applications close 2 April 2018]
The Institute for Sustainable Futures are pleased to announce that we are seeking applications for one PhD student to join our Joint PhD program with the Technische Universitšt Berlin (TUB): 'Transport service towards 2050: shaping an innovative mobility paradigm'.
We are seeking a PhD student with an interest in articulating the features of a newly emerging user focussed mobility paradigm - or practitioner mind-set - that we call 'Service Engineering'. The focus of this PhD is to investigate approaches to integrating sensitivity to a spectrum of passenger needs and experiences in the operational tools used to manage congested public transport environments. The successful candidate will be comfortable using a mix of methods that are appropriate to incorporating user perspectives.
You will have an interest in improving mobility experience for all passengers in congested public transport systems. We welcome applicants from any discipline but especially welcome those with a person-centred focus to complex urban systems, such as sociology, human factors, health, design, education and urban planning.
This position is only available to Australian domestic students. The successful candidate will be exempt from paying course fees, and will receive a living stipend of $27,082 per annum.
