iCity 2.0 is a multi-year project to undertake urban data science research that advances complete community design in Ontario urban areas. The project will focus on both existing and new neighbourhoods, with an emphasis on significantly improving the quality, cost-effectiveness and performance of urban mobility through improved design of both our urban transportation systems and our local urban forms. 2 postdoctoral positions will be funded from the project:
The SSH CENTRE is funding 30 new interdisciplinary collaborative teams up to €7,500 to develop a single policy or governance recommendation related to the EU Green Deal’s commitments on climate, energy or mobility. Deadline for applications is 4 June 2023.
The recommendation developed by each collaborative team will be published as a short chapter in an open access book (focusing on climate, energy or mobility) AND will be submitted to the European Commission’s Directorate-General for Research and Innovation.
What activities can be funded?
There is intentional flexibility in the collaborative work that can be funded – from literature reviews to stakeholder workshops, visiting fellowships to participatory evaluations, etc. The only requirements are that: (1) the activities span SSH and STEM; and (2) the recommendation moves beyond simply highlighting failures.
As well as funding the interdisciplinary collaborative work, the SSH CENTRE is also hosting a virtual symposium on Tuesday 10th October 2023, where representatives from the 30 collaborative teams will have the opportunity to share initial thoughts and receive support in writing their chapter.
Who is eligible?
Funding is available to collaborative teams composed of at least 4 researchers based at institutions within the EU or a Horizon-associated country (including the UK), with a minimum of 2 SSH researchers and 2 STEM researchers.
Who are the book editors?
Colleagues are welcome to reach out to each editorial team, should they have any queries:
- Ester Galande Sanchez, Alevgul Sorman, Violeta Cabello (Basque Centre for Climate Change), Sara Heidenreich, Christian Klöckner (Norwegian University of Science & Technology)
- Ami Crowther, Chris Foulds, Rosie Robison (Anglia Ruskin University), Ganna Gladkykh (European Energy Research Alliance)
- Imre Keseru, Samyajit Basu (Vrije Universiteit Brussel), Tomas Moe Skjølsvold, Marianne Ryghaug (Norwegian University of Science & Technology)

Within the GRINS project (Next Generatino EU / PNRR: https://dse.unibo.it/it/terza-missione/next-generation-eu), at the Department of Economics of the Alma Mater Studiorum Università’ di Bologna a post-doc position (assegno di ricerca) within the themes of Spoke 7 (Territorial sustainability), and in particular of the work package on “Infrastructures and smart mobility: policies and strategies for resilient and sustainable territories and cities” will be opened.
Experience in the field of transport (and potentially tourism), and with discrete choice modelling and related software, is appreciated. A PhD is not required for this position, but will be evaluated, if present, as a preferential title.
Applications for the selection must be presented exclusively via web, through Unibo’s website, by 17 APRIL.
