About us: UWE Bristol’s Centre for Transport and Society (CTS) is a research centre with the aim of furthering understanding and influence on the interactions between mobility, lifestyles and society in a context of technological change. Our research themes include the following: sustainable transport policies and solutions; travel behaviour, lifestyles and the life course; societal change, technology and transport futures; social impacts of transport; and transport infrastructure and design. Our current research projects include a number of projects linked to new technologies (automated vehicles, sustainable urban freight, micromobility), national and regional evaluations of sustainable transport interventions, young people and transport, and projects developing approaches to appropriate infrastructure design and implementation.

CTS sits within the Department of Geography and Environmental Management which is one of the leading providers of architecture and built and natural environment education, research and knowledge exchange in the country.

About you: The Centre for Transport and Society is seeking to appoint a Lecturer in Transport Studies to contribute both to teaching programmes, mainly in the Department of Geography and Environmental Management, and to the research activities of CTS. This post is progressable to Senior Lecturer. We are looking for someone who can contribute to teaching on the MSc Transport Engineering and Planning which includes modules on transport economics and appraisal, transport planning, transport modelling, travel behaviour, transport policy and infrastructure design. CTS has a wide portfolio of research and we are particularly keen for the post-holder to contribute to current projects evaluating the impacts of transport interventions such as shared mobility schemes, electric micromobility, on-demand public transport and mobility-as-a-service.

Other duties will depend upon the background of the appointee, who will be expected to make an enthusiastic contribution to the life of the centre, the department and faculty. A proven research track record through publication in major conferences and journals, or through practice, is desirable. Membership of relevant academic and/or professional bodies is also desired.

The appointee will be expected to offer pastoral support to students, including acting as academic personal tutor where appropriate. Experience of student project and dissertation supervision would also be advantageous.   

This post is based at our lively Frenchay campus.
