Master’s & PhD Program On Low-Carbon Vehicle Technology, Demand, & Policy

In addition to the great renewable energy master’s program I just wrote about, I was recently informed about an opportunity to do graduate, PhD, or post-doctorate studies on the topic of low-carbon vehicles at Simon Fraser University.

Tesla Model S Brown AmsterdamFrom the announcement page: “We invite applications for graduate students and post-doctoral positions for interdisciplinary research relating to low-carbon vehicle technology, demand and policy. Successful applicants will join Drs. Erik Kjeang (School of Mechatronic Systems Engineering), Elicia Maine (Beedie School of Business) and Jonn Axsen (School of Resource and Environmental Management) in a multi-year (2015-2020), interdisciplinary project seeking to develop affordable low-carbon vehicle technologies to meet climate goals. The overall project crosses three Faculties at SFU (Applied Sciences, Environment and Business) integrating social, economic and technical analyses of alternative fuel vehicles such as hydrogen fuel cell and battery electric vehicles. All qualified candidates are encouraged to apply.

“Applications will be accepted until the positions are filled. Review of applications will start late June 2015. Only short-listed candidates will be contacted. Please send all applications electronically to: Suzanne Goldberg, Adjunct Professor, School of Resource and Environmental Management, Simon Fraser University, TEL: 778-558-3617; e-mail:

Looks enticing. As an academic at heart (I think), this program is really tempting me. But how could I move on from the wonderful work I’m doing right now?!
