Postdoc (3 years) and PhD positions - Scaling of Urban Forms and Environmental Impacts - Luxembourg


(David Chavalarias) #1

Dear colleagues,

In the frame of the interdisciplinary project SCALE-IT-UP (Scaling of the Environmental Impacts of Transport and Urban Patterns) funded by the FNR (Fonds National de la Recherche in Luxembourg), we are looking for a postdoc (3 years) and a PhD student to work at the Luxembourg Institute of Socio-Economic Research (LISER) and at the University of Luxembourg.

The project is led by a geographer (Geoffrey Caruso, professor at the University of Luxembourg and LISER) and a physicist (Rémi Lemoy, postdoc at the University of Luxembourg), and will combine approaches from both disciplines to analyse statistically large spatial datasets regarding urban areas and their environmental impacts. The project aims to study hundreds of cities and uncover new urban scaling laws.

The details of the Post-Doc position are here:

And the details regarding the PhD position are here:

Please do not hesitate to forward these offers to potentially interested early-career scientists. We note that in addition to the scientific and societal interest of the project, the salaries offered are highly attractive.

Best regards,

Geoffrey Caruso and Rémi Lemoy
