Advisors wanted to inform our research

Published 18 September 2016 by Colin Howden

We are in the process of forming a Research Advisory Group to help assist and advise when undertaking research projects (particularly at the preliminary project scoping phase). The group would not generally meet in person, butwould rather involve virtual communication (e.g. providing input into research project specifications and research methods).

Transform Scotland undertakes research for sustainable and active travel modes to influence and shape policy, practice and behaviour in Scotland. Recent projects include work on topics such as car-free tourism, interchange between cycling and public transport, and the productivity benefits for business travellers of switching from air to rail.

We are looking for enthusiastic individuals with research and analytical experience preferably in transport.

Some of the experiences/competencies we’d be looking for would include:

  • Transport consultancy experience;
  • Government experience (local or national);
  • Transport planning/policy competence;
  • Economics competence (in particular with regards to public policy); and
  • Transport appraisal competence.

If you are available and your experience matches one or more of the competencies above we would like to have you as part of the group. If you are interested or have any queries if you could contact Michelle Brophy, Research Manager by phone (0131 243 2690) or via email (michelle.brophy@transformscotland.org.uk). We look forward to hearing from you.

We would welcome applications prior to Thursday 20 October 2016, although we may still be able to take applications on an ongoing basis after that.
