PhD in Micromobility Transport Modelling


WMG

Applications accepted all year round Funded PhD Project (UK Students Only)

About the Project

Micromobility vehicles, such as e-scooters (electric scooters) and shared bicycles/electrically assisted pedal cycles (EAPCs), are set to change the way we travel in the UK. COVID-19 has accelerated the move to low-carbon sustainable transport and Mobility-as-a-Service (MaaS). For example, the UK Government have announced trials of rental e-scooters and other micromobility vehicles. To ensure these new transport alternatives are inclusive and do not lead to disenfranchisement, it is essential to understand a wide variety of peoples’ needs.

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

Funding Notes
