The Centre for Climate and Energy Transformation is looking for a PhD researcher and a postdoctoral researcher. The application deadline for two recruitment positions connected to the Research Council of Norway project: Freight logistics in sustainable cities (CITYFREIGHT) is extended to Friday June 5th.
“Freight Logistics in Sustainable Cities” (CITYFREIGHT), which is led by NHH Norwegian School of Economics and where CET is a partner. The goal of the project is to provide public authorities with a toolbox for realistically evaluating major decisions that would make freight transportation in a city more energy efficient and sustainable. Most Norwegian cities are small and topologically complicated. Freight deliveries in city centres will, unless regulated, increase because of urban population growth and increased internet trade. In particular, there will be a large increase in the number of deliveries. Consequences may be enhanced energy consumption, increased space usage, noise, pollution and climate gas emissions.
