Research Fellow in Zero Carbon Mobility Evaluation

Salary: Grade 7 (£37,099 – £44,263 p.a. depending on experience)

This role will be based on the university campus, with scope for it to be undertaken in a hybrid manner. We are also open to discussing flexible working arrangements.

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 understand the whole life carbon impacts of the transport system? 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 the whole life carbon and wider impacts of a transition away from individualised car ownership. Whilst the role will focus on the mobility transition, we encourage applications from applicants with the right skills who are currently working in other policy domains.
