      doctoral research scholarships (McGill and UBC)





      Hello all,
      On behalf of my colleague Madhav Badami,  I am sending out this call for
      applications for two doctoral positions in Canada (see attached and
      below).
      With best wishes for 2006,
      Raphael Fischler

      TWO DOCTORAL RESEARCH SCHOLARSHIPS

      IN POLICY RESEARCH ON

      ALTERNATIVE TRANSPORT FUELS AND URBAN AIR POLLUTION

      IN A LOW-INCOME COUNTRY



      Applications are invited for TWO Doctoral Research Scholarships,
      available from May 2006, one at McGill University, and the other at The
      University of British Columbia, for policy-focused research related to
      alternative transport fuels in India.



      The doctoral research will be conducted as part of a research programme
      focused on compressed natural gas as a transport fuel in India. The
      research programme is funded by the Social Sciences and Humanities
      Research Council of Canada, and is led by Dr. Madhav G. Badami, School
      of Urban Planning and McGill School of Environment, McGill University,
      Dr. Milind Kandlikar, Institute of Asian Research and Liu Institute for
      Global Issues, University of British Columbia (UBC), and Dr. Geetam
      Tiwari, Transportation Research and Injury Prevention Programme, Indian
      Institute of Technology, Delhi. The research, whose overall objective is
      to assess whether alternative fuels can cost-effectively improve urban
      air quality, promote energy security, and reduce greenhouse gas
      emissions in rapidly motorizing low-income countries like India, will be
      conducted along multiple dimensions (environmental, socio-economic,
      technological, institutional, and behavioural), and will provide the
      opportunity to investigate critical issues in energy policy, human
      health risks, emissions modelling and science-policy interactions.



      The Doctoral Research Scholars, who will be jointly supervised by Drs.
      Badami and Kandlikar, will work independently, but the work of one will
      inform and be integrated with that of the other. At McGill, there will
      be the opportunity to work in the newly established Urban Systems
      Laboratory, and at UBC, in the Institute for Resources, Environment and
      Sustainability.



      It is expected that the Doctoral Research Scholars will complete their
      studies toward their PhD in three to four years. Each Doctoral Research
      Scholar will be funded for three years, and will be helped to apply for
      additional funding if required.



      Applicants should e-mail Dr. Madhav G. Badami (at
      madhav.badami@...) and Dr. Milind Kandlikar (at
      mkandlikar@...) explaining why they are interested in and
      suitable for doctoral work in the research programme. The following
      materials should be attached: a CV, including qualifications, courses
      taken, and names of two referees; and a writing sample that will allow
      assessment of suitability. The deadline for applications is February 15,
      2006.
