The Platial Analysis Lab @ McGill University has funding to support two graduate student researchers with interests in investigating the impact of new shared mobility services (e.g., e-scooters, e-bikes, car-share, ride-hailing) on existing urban mobility services. The positions are available at either the Masters or PhD level and will start in the Fall of 2020. Successful applicants will receive stipends to cover living expenses in Montreal as well as additional support for research materials.

Preferences will be given to candidates with the following background:

  • Bachelor’s (or Master’s) degree in Geography, Transportation, Information Science, Computer science, or related field.
  • Programming experience (e.g., Python, Java).
  • Experience employing spatial statistics

If this broad topic is of interest, and you are interested in joining the lab, please read through the information on this page and contact Professor Grant McKenzie with the relevant documents before January 1, 2020.
