This is a call for applications for a three and a half year, fully funded, ‘CREDS (Centre for Research into Energy Demand Solutions) Interdisciplinary Energy Demand Studentship’.
The project investigates the ways in which office technologies and office work are changing, especially in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. The research investigates emerging complexes of technology (digital and otherwise) as they become embedded in working practices and as they modify the extent and distribution of energy consumption and carbon emissions.
The aim of the project is to identify and describe the processes involved in specific settings so that insights into the details of this sociotechnical transformation can be extended to other organisations seeking to develop and adopt lower carbon ways of working.
The research will draw on theoretical resources from social theories of practice and from science and technology studies to bring fresh perspectives to bear on the digital transformation of working practices and their impact on energy demand.
