Research Fellow in Agent-based Modelling for Zero Carbon Mobility

Closing Date
WorkplaceLeeds, Yorkshire, UK
Would you like to be part of a major collaborative research programme to help tackle transport’s contribution to the climate crisis? Are you looking to apply your research skills to predict transitions towards sustainable mobility systems? Do you thrive on working in an exciting and creative environment committed to making a difference?

Inspiring Futures for Zero Carbon Mobility ( INFUZE ) is a major £7.8m five-year research grant funded by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council. Working across the Universities of Leeds, Lancaster and the Royal College of Art INFUZE is seeking to achieve transformative change in how transport works, addressing the climate challenge whilst improving fairness and quality of life. INFUZE is an exciting new collaboration which will work with citizens and businesses to re-imagine our transport systems. The programme will build an increasingly ambitious suite of real-world trials with communities, transport providers and government partners.

We are looking to recruit a passionate and committed researcher to drive forward our work on simulating possible transitions away from individualised car ownership. The candidate will require expertise in agent-based modelling, preferably with experience in developing large-scale transport models. However, the models we build will have a direct interface with community stakeholders and mobility service providers, so we are particularly seeking applicants who are comfortable in working with external stakeholders and able to support co-creation.

This role will be located in the School of Geography’s Institute for Spatial Data Science (ISDS) , as part of the Mobility Science Lab. As well as working closely with Prof Ed Manley and Dr Roger Beecham, and the wider INFUZE team, there will be opportunities to network and contribute to research activities within ISDS, the Institute for Transport Studies (ITS) and the Leeds Institute for Data Analytics (LIDA).
