The Science Policy Research Unit (SPRU), within the University of Sussex Business School, is seeking to appoint a Research Fellow to work with Professor Karoline Rogge on the European Research Council project ‘Governing sustainable energy-mobility transitions: multi-level policy mixes, transformative capacities and low-carbon innovations’ (EMPOCI). EMPOCI investigates how low-carbon transitions can be accelerated in the increasingly interconnected energy and mobility systems. We are looking for a candidate with strong skills in quantitative survey research methods (planning, design, implementation, advanced cross-sectional analysis) and an interest in e-mobility transitions.
Within the project, the Research Fellow will collaborate with Prof Rogge and two PhD students to jointly refine an interdisciplinary analytical framework bridging innovation studies and policy studies to investigate interconnected and contested multi-sectoral transition processes in the energy-mobility-system. In particular, the Research Fellow will lead the multi-actor surveys covering the interplay between policy mixes and low-carbon innovation for business, society, policy and academia in four countries, and will be responsible for the empirical research in the US (California) and the UK (Scotland).
In addition, the Research Fellow will co-lead the analysis of global dynamics of sustainable energy-mobility transitions, co-lead the integration of findings (across actors, countries and methods) and contribute to the mapping of relevant actors and multi-level policy mixes. The Research Fellow will also co-lead the external dissemination and stakeholder engagement activities (e.g. co-designing transformative policy mixes in foresight workshops).
Applications at Research Fellow I and II level are welcome.
Essential criteria for the post are:
