Research Fellow in Travel Behaviour Analysis

Do you want to further your career by applying your quantitative data analysis skills as part of a leading research group on transport and energy at the world-renowned Institute for Transport Studies? If so, this could be the opportunity for you.

This post-doctoral position will undertake focused analysis of data collected in a 5-wave panel survey of travel behaviour during and since the Covid pandemic. The Transport and Travel Adaptation Study () is the only longitudinal panel study of its kind in the UK and the role will take on responsibility for statistical analysis of the data and writing up of the results. The analysis will involve statistical techniques such as regression and structural equation modelling to capture dynamic changes in behaviours such as car use, public transport use, car ownership and working from home, and the factors underlying these changes. The candidate will have proved quantitative data analysis skills and be able to use different weighting.

The Research project is affiliated to the Centre for Research into Energy Demand Solutions ().
