Post-Doc position in Rimini in Sustainable Mobility

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 we opened 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”.

As briefly described in the attached description, research activities will focus on the implementation of extensive discrete choice experiments on sustainable mobility and in particular on the integration of public transport and micromobility, and on the role of mobility hubs as facilitators of such integration.

Experience in the field of transport (and potentially tourism), and with discrete choice modelling and related software, is considered a priority.

A PhD is not required for this position, but will be evaluated, if present, within the selection. Please note that the second-cycle degree (master’s degree) is the legal requirement for applying, and a winning candidate holding a non-EU degree will need to provide an official translation and a declaration of value from the competent Italian embassy/consulate within 60 days after the closing of the selection.

Although the contract is initially for one year, it is extendible within the project up to three years. The reported amount is tax free, and only includes law-mandated social security contributions.

The holder of the post-doc grant will work on the campus of RIMINI of Unibo, within a team which includes Profs Roberto Patuelli and Lorenzo Masiero, and in possible synergy with the SmartHubs project (https://www.smartmobilityhubs.eu/) and related collaborators.

The start of activities of the grant holder is expected approximately for 1 March.

Applications for the selection must be presented exclusively via web, through Unibo’s website, by 23 JANUARY.

Please see the official call (also in English version) and the link to the application page at the following address:https://bandi.unibo.it/ricerca/assegni-ricerca?id_bando=66214.

For any information, please do not hesitate to contact Prof. Roberto Patuelli (roberto.patuelli@unibo.it).
