The University of Amsterdam’s Urban Planning research group is looking for a postdoctoral researcher (3,5 years) to contribute to the new European project “JUST STREET” .
The main objective of JUST STREET is to support cities in promoting, improving and converting to just, equal and active mobility by developing innovative and holistic strategies, and most importantly implementing them, aimed at encouraging transformative urban planning solutions with complementary behavioural changes. JUST STREET focuses on marginalised social groups and their needs (and contributions) as fundamental to the process to shape the proposed strategies with a bottom-up methodology applied throughout.
The postdoctoral researcher will be working directly with Prof. Dr. Marco te Brömmelstroet. The candidate will also become part of the JUST STREET consortium, which includes leading research institutes and cities in Europe. The candidate will be embedded in the Urban Planning research group, in the Department of Geography, Planning and International Development Studies (GPIO) at the University of Amsterdam. The postdoc will become part of the Amsterdam Institute of Social Science Research (AISSR) and the Centre for Urban Studies (CUS).
What are you going to do
The candidate will become an active member of the JUST STREET consortium and undertake research activities for four years to support a transition to more just streets in Amsterdam and a range of European cities.
What do you have to offer

You have an interest in bridging abstract academic notions with hands-on policy advice. You have an interest in conducting comparative research, as well as bridging different theories and disciplines. You can work independently and you are able to establish contacts within new networks of scholars, policymakers and communities in order to conduct research in a large European consortium.
