Qualification Details

  • Doctoral degree in a relevant social science or engineering science, with         demonstrable skills in quantitative analysis of behavior;
  • Experience with choice modeling and conducting stated choice experiments;
  • Strong interests in methodological research;
  • Affinity with innovative mobility systems;
  • Excellent command of written and spoken English and preferably proficiency in        Dutch;
  • Excellent communication skills and interest in translating research ideas and        findings for the benefit of non-academic stakeholders (e.g. managers and         policymakers);
  • The ability to work independently and as a team player, i.e. willingness to interact intensively with your scientific colleagues and the Dutch societal partners within the consortium.

Responsibilities/Job Description

To develop more sustainable mobility alternatives today that are introduced in the future, insight into travelers‘ preferences is essential. A typical research approach in this context is to observe choices travelers make in stated choice experiments from which discrete choice models are estimated. A limitation of this approach is that measurements represent the current preferences of travelers in current contexts, while these are subject to change in the future due to, for example, unforeseen technological development of the innovation and additional information received about, and experience gained with the targeted mobilities. This may pose problems in forecasting, in particular when the introduction and diffusion of innovative sustainable mobilities takes a long period of time. The challenge in this postdoc project is, therefore, to further develop and test experiments and choice models that are better equipped to take dynamics in preferences and circumstances into account, with the aim to improve prediction under different scenarios. The post-doc will take part in the ‘On the move’ research program together with a dynamic team of researchers from Delft University of Technology and Radboud University, and will be supervised by dr. E. Molin (DUT) and prof. H. Meurs (RU).
