Research Fellow Positions with UBC Sustainability Initiative


Business Title: Transportation Data Science Research Assistant
Job Category: Research Assistant 1(pay grade 2)

Job Summary

As of 2012, more than half of the world’s population lives in cities and there are no signs of that trend reversing. The latest UN forecast predicts that 70 percent of the World’s population will be living in cities by 2050. Demand on built environments and infrastructures will grow accordingly, and pressures on cities, large and small, will become acute. Cities will be confronting profound sustainability, health and wellbeing, security, economic and technology challenges. At the core of these problems is the need for a research intensive integrated analytic approach, working across disciplines and prospecting for new approaches to the design, management and evolution of the cities of the future to create resilient, livable, healthy and prosperous urban environments for generations to come
