      Summary Description: WRI is seeking candidates for a new position in
      EMBARQ,
      the WRI Center for Transport and Environment. EMBARQ acts as a catalyst
      for
      socially, financially, and environmentally sound solutions to the problems
      of urban transport in developing countries. EMBARQ will concentrate on
      helping policy-makers adopt sensible transport strategies, try out likely
      solutions, and evaluate them openly and fairly. Results of its various
      projects will be shared with other cities and countries. Initially, EMBARQ
      will work with governments, research institutes, and non-governmental
      organizations in about five cities in the developing world. EMBARQ 's
      first
      partnership is with Mexico City, one of the world's biggest cities that
      experiences serious transport problems.

      Major Responsibilities: The Associate will focus on EMBARQ s work in Latin
      America, in particular in Mexico City. There the work program has three
      related emphases: creation of a bus rapid transit system and its
      integration with the existing Metro; the testing and promotion of clean,
      new
      vehicle and fuel options for the heavy duty bus fleet, and promoting
      measures and tests to reduce pollution from existing vehicles.
      Additionally,
      the Associate will help gather information on recent transportation
      initiatives in other Latin American Cities (in Peru, Brazil, Chile,
      Ecuador,
      and Colombia). The Associate will focus on achieving the various
      deliverables in this program to improve transportation in Mexico City.
      S/he

      successful
      candidate's expertise.

      Under the direction of the Co-Directors, the Associate will be responsible
      for managing many aspects of these programs, including these:
      * Contacts with Mexican officials and experts; scheduling EMBARQ visit to
      Mexico City (including logistics);
      * Attending meetings in Mexico City (and possibly other key Latin American
      Cities) representing EMBARQ;
      * Developing communications materials that both describe and assist our
      effort (in English and Spanish);
      * Working directly on key research issues related to vehicle emissions and
      emission reduction strategies, BRT planning and implementation (including
      issues related to rolling stock and fuels), and transport planning,
      including development of different kinds of travel (origin-destination)
      surveys for both BRT development and for the entire region of Mexico City.
      Key results will be communicated back to our Mexican colleagues;
      * Assisting with fundraising for the Mexico City projects;
      * Managing the grant to the Center for Sustainable Transport, our partner
      in
      Mexico City;
      * Developing our data base of contacts in the region and elsewhere.

      Over the longer term, the associate will assist with developing and
      implementing a research program relevant to sustainable transport in Latin
      America, analyzing and synthesizing data, and writing, editing, and
      managing
      reports on the research. The associate will also play a leading role in
      developing a second EMBARQ partnership in Latin America (in 2004 or 2005).
