About the Project
Applications are invited for a fully funded PhD studentship in Human Factors Engineering, at WMG, University of Warwick. The PhD will focus on the development of a transport modelling software tool, designed for shared micromobility vehicles. The project will be equally split, between developing the modelling software and conducting human factors studies, to understand the needs of people that want to use micromobility as a travel alternative.
ESSENTIAL AND DESIRABLE CRITERIA
Prospective candidates are expected to have a minimum 2.1 undergraduate (BEng, MEng, BSc, MSci) and/or postgraduate masters’ qualification (MSc) with 65% or above in a Human Factors or Computer Science related discipline. The successful candidate will require a good knowledge of computer programming, ideally with experience of transport modelling software.
During the PhD, students will have an opportunity to undertake a variety of training activities, including interdisciplinary training on responsible research, public engagement, in addition to regular seminars and workshops held at Warwick.
START DATE: We would ideally like someone to start as soon as possible, but we can offer some flexibility on this - please contact us to discuss
To be eligible for this project the successful applicant should have indefinite leave to remain in the UK and have been ordinarily resident here for 3 years prior to the project start-date, apart from occasional or temporary absences. Additional details of these criteria are available on the EPSRC website.
