PhD Opportunities in Transport and Land Use and Public and Active Transport Planning, Operations and Equity at McGill University

The Transportation Research at McGill (TRAM) research laboratory at McGill University’s School of Urban Planning invites expressions of interest in pursuing doctoral research on a range of transport and land use-related topics beginning in Fall 2021.

Transport represents the vital link between people and the opportunities and activities that shape everything from individual financial, physical and social wellbeing to collective climate action, environmental sustainability and economic development. Selected PhD students will work under the direction of Prof. Ahmed El-Geneidy as members of the TRAM research group, which brings together faculty, practitioners and students to conduct practice and policy-ready research on the complex and evolving intersection between transport and land-use systems. For more information about the TRAM research group please visit https://tram.mcgill.ca/ . Students will be expected to work on multiple federally supported research projects in one or more of the following areas: transport and land use; travel behaviour; public and active transport planning, operations and equity; and measuring the impacts of major infrastructure projects.

Three years of funding is available based on merits. Qualified students may also be eligible for additional fellowships or awards.

Successful candidates must demonstrate an interest and grounding in transport with a master’s degree or higher in planning or a related field. Knowledge and experience in public health is also a plus. Robust experience with statistical and geospatial analysis and excellent English writing and oral-communication skills are essential. At least a working knowledge of French is also desirable.

Interested candidates should send a preliminary e-mail to Prof. Ahmed El-Geneidy at ahmed.elgeneidy@mcgill.ca no later than Dec. 30, 2020, with a brief description of their interest and qualifications. The e-mail should include a CV, names of two references, and an unofficial transcript of all previous coursework. Shortlisted candidates will be invited to interview by Zoom in January. Prospective students must submit their final application through McGill’s online system January 15, 2021, for a position beginning September 2021.
