Postdoc in Transport Electrification and Automation Impact Analysis
KTH Royal Institute of Technology

KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm has grown to become one of
Europe’s leading technical and engineering universities, as well as a key
centre of intellectual talent and innovation. We are Sweden’s largest
technical research and learning institution and home to students,
researchers and faculty from around the world. Our research and education
covers a wide area including natural sciences and all branches of
engineering, as well as architecture, industrial management, urban
planning, history and philosophy.
Department of Machine Design is active in research and education within
product realization. Specific areas are: Machine elements, Machine Design,
Mechatronics and Embedded control systems, Internal Combustion Engines,
Integrated product development,Innovation and Industrial Design.

*Job description *

Integrated Transport Research Lab (ITRL) is a research center aimed at
researching and demonstrating transport concepts that can significantly
reduce CO2-emissions while being economically and socially sustainable.
ITRL develops and heads research projects involving researchers from all
schools of KTH, as well as contributes to research within the system
perspective in the research projects. At present, ITRL has two projects
focusing on the impact of technology on efficient transport and mobility
services, i.e., MMiB (Modern Mobility in the Barkarby City) and SustEV
(Sustainable Electric Vehicle). The selected postdoc will participate in
these two projects with the purpose to explore the impact of recent
transport technology to the spatial movements, both at individual and
system level impact analyses.

The project MMiB (Moden Mobilitet i Barkarbystaden) aims at evaluating the
long term impacts of autonomous bus operation as a feeder service to more
establish public transport network in Barkabystaden, Stockholm. The project
is funded by the Drive Sweden-Vinnova. The postdoc’s role is to analyze the
short term and long term impacts of the deployment of the bus and explore
the resident’s learning process in adopting the new technology.

The second project “Toward Sustainable Electric Vehicle Use”, is funded by
Swedish Environmental Protection Agency (Naturvårdsverket). This project’s
goal is to create conditions facilitating the adoption of electric vehicles
without stimulating increased car use. In this project, the risk for
increased car use with electric cars is investigated: the conditions under
which increased car use is likely to occur and the influence of policy
measures and the provision of charging infrastructure are explored using an
interdisciplinary approach. Specifically, the postdoc will design, carry
out and analyze stated adaptation experiments that will be used to
investigate the behavioral alterations of car users when changing to an
electric vehicle.

In both projects the postdoc will independently lead a large part of the
project’s activities and communicate the results in both written form in
reports and scientific articles, and orally at such venues as public
meetings and international conferences.

The postdoc may also contribute in minor ways to other Integrated Transport
Research Lab’s activities, up to a maximum of 20% of total time depending
on what needs arise.

*Qualifications *
