      Dear Eric,

      Please find information on PhD Studentships in the Centre for Transport &
      Society (CTS), University of the West of England, Bristol. Could you please
      bring this to the attention of friends and colleagues at WorldTransport,
      KyotoWorldCities and other relevant groups?



      Two 3-year PhD Studentships are available in the Centre for Transport &
      Society starting in October 2010.
      Closing date for applications: Friday 25 June 2010.


      The University of the West of England, Bristol (UWE) is now inviting
      applications from highly capable and enthusiastic individuals who wish to
      study for a PhD in the area of 'transport and society'. UWE's Centre for
      Transport & Society (CTS) has a strong focus across its research on
      understanding and influencing travel behaviour. We expect this new PhD
      research to further support the Centre's aim to improve and promote
      understanding of the inherent links between lifestyles and personal travel
      in the context of continuing social and technological change.

      The available studentships are not attached to pre-defined topics though the
      following are illustrative of areas of interest to the Centre:

      - Ageing, older people and transport behaviour
      - Barriers and enablers to greater uptake of cycling
      - Car ownership decisions and car-free or 'low-car' living
      - Changing notions of ownership and use in the transport sector
      - Decision making and the role of information
      - Information age implications for social practices and travel
      - Interactions between transport and spatial planning
      - Reasons for the recent levelling off in car travel
      - Road user attitudes and behaviour in relation to safety
      - The lifestyles and travel characteristics of emerging generations of
      - Travel time use and value
      - Understanding and influencing attitudes

      As a strong candidate you will be attracted to this opportunity to shape
      your own topic as part of the application you submit.
