6 full time research positions on cycling in the Netherlands (PhD, researcher/lecturer and postdoctoral researcher)
Cycling booms in many Dutch cities. While smart cycling innovations promise to increase cycling’s modal share in the (peri-)urban transport system even further, little is understood of their impacts or cost and benefit. The “Smart Cycling Futures (SCF)” program investigates if and how smart cycling innovations ─ including ICT-enabled cycling innovations, infrastructures, and social innovations like new business models ─ contribute to more resilient and livable Dutch urban regions.
The program offers 6 fulltime research positions. Deadline for applications May 10th.

Cranfield University is looking for a PhD candidate funded by H2020 ( the FUCAM project) and the Centre for Air Transport Cranfield University. The objective of the FUCAM project (FUture Cabin for the Asian Market) is to develop a 2025+ conceptual cabin design devoted to the Asian market, for short and medium range aircraft. FUCAM is a 3-year collaborative project with Japan comprising 8 research and industrial partners from 7 European countries including Airbus. Our main tasks are to investigate the key factors to affect the end users’ choice (requirement) for cabin architecture and system as a part of their air travel (quantitative method), to evaluate the economic impact for users (passengers and airlines). A PhD candidate who is very strong at quantitative analysis, incl. discrete choice modeling, is desired. Please contact Dr Chikage Miyoshi (email@example.com) to request further information.
