October 26, 2017
Print

The Sustainable Transportation Action Research Team (START) at SFU, led by Dr. Jonn Axsen (School of Resource and Environmental Management) is looking to recruit personnel for 3 positions: a post-doctorate researcher, a research manager, and a Ph.D. student, all in the field of sustainable transportation, low-carbon transportation markets, and consumer market research.

 

Post-Doctorate Researcher

START seeks a full-time Post Doctorate Researcher to conduct and manage research related to low-carbon transportation technologies, markets and policies, starting January 2018 (or earlier). This position is split equally between research and project management, and will require you to have demonstrated skills in both areas.

Ideal candidates will hold a Ph.D., be eager to conduct novel, applied research in the interdisciplinary field of low-carbon transportation systems, and to publish results in top-level academic journals.

Funding is available to provide a $40,000/year stipend for two years. You would be encouraged to apply for grants/scholarships to assist with further funding (e.g. SSHRC Post-doctoral Grant, if you are a Canadian citizen), which could be added to this stipend.

Review of applications will start in early November 2017 and will continue until the position is filled. For more information, please see the full "START Postdoc Research Manager Description" document attached below.

 

Ph.D. Student Researcher

START is looking for market analysis or social science PhD candidates with experience in survey/interview design or quantitative social science methods to conduct research on the market potential for low-carbon transportation technologies, starting in Fall 2018 (or earlier).

Ideal candidates will be eager to conduct novel, applied quantitative research in the field of low-carbon transportation systems, and to publish results in top-level academic journals. Applicants should already have attained a Master’s degree—though those with only a Bachelor’s can still apply for our Master’s program. All qualified candidates are encouraged to apply.

It is our intention to provide a competitive stipend for this position (subject to funding), though successful applicants will also be expected to apply for any relevant scholarships to support their stipend.

Review of applications will start in December 2017 and will continue until the position is filled. For more information, please see the full "START PhD Student Researcher Description" document attached below.

 

Research Manager

START seeks a full time Research Manager to coordinate research projects and graduate students, starting January 2018 (or earlier).

Ideal candidates will hold a Bachelor’s degree (at minimum) and be eager to conduct and support novel, applied research in the interdisciplinary field of low-carbon transportation systems.

A competitive salary is available to support you for at least two years, and you would be encouraged to apply for additional grants to increase your salary. Part-time work (e.g., about 20 hours/week) is also an option for qualified candidates.

Review of applications will start early November 2017 and will continue until the position is filled. For more information, please see the full "START Research Manger Description" document attached below.
