The School of Earth and Environmental Sciences

The School of Earth and Environmental Sciences (SEES) delivers practical solutions to the complex issues that affect our physical environment and how we interact with it. Our interconnected teams of earth scientists, physical and social scientists, environmental management specialists, health and safety experts, and urban planners work together to address the increasingly critical global challenges of a growing population, climate change, urbanisation, food security, conservation and natural resource management. Researchers, teachers and students from around the world are drawn to our vibrant academic environment at UQ’s stunning St Lucia campus. We house world-class research facilities and have access to unique fieldwork locations in Australia and abroad. UQ’s research excellence in earth and environmental sciences is world renowned, and is reflected by our consistent high ranking in respected global league tables. The School also has an excellent success rate in nationally competitive grants and a strong record of high quality publications.

The role

The successful candidate will work across various projects housed in the Queensland Centre for Population Research (QCPR) and primarily on an Australian Research Council (ARC) Linkage project: Reclaiming lost ground: Transitions of mobility and parking. The successful candidate will lead the assembly of the empirical evidence through which we can assess the implications of parking provision and policy for mobility and land-use planning across Australian cities. This evidence will be developed into a decision-making tool that will allow Australian cities to determine their best re-use of space currently taken over by cars.

You should also have a strong desire to develop a successful and highly-productive research career in human geography, excellent general research skills, a strong methodological background, excellent statistical and analytic skills, strong independent writing abilities, and the capacity to work with and across multidisciplinary research teams.
