Job Posting – Postdoctoral Fellow in Transportation/Planning/Suburbs/Justice
Overview of the Position:
Rapid urbanization is transforming suburban peripheries world-wide, creating immense
transportation-related social and environmental problems that threaten human health and
wellbeing. Recognizing this as a significant global challenge, the University of Toronto
Scarborough has created the Suburban Mobilities Cluster of Scholarly Prominence led by Dr.
Steven Farber to research four interdisciplinary challenges: rising suburban inequalities,
improving transportation design and technology, climate change, and resilience to shocks. More
information about Suburban Mobilities can be found in here.
We are seeking a single candidate for a term lasting up to three years (with the potential to
renew) to join the research team as a main contributor to the cluster’s activities in advancing new
research approaches, developing partnerships and engagement, and creating student support and
embedded training opportunities.
