In the Research Group of Sustainable Cities and Everyday Practices, Danish Building Research Institute at the Faculty of Engineering and Science, AAU-Copenhagen campus, three PhD stipends are available within the general research program Planning and Development. These stipends are open for appointment from 1 September 2019.
The transition to a low-carbon society include new prosumer roles linking renewable energy production and consumption by the use of smart technologies. To guide this low-carbon transition, new theory development on the role of technological systems in everyday life is needed. The project called eCAPE will contribute to this by further developing theories of practice in three directions:
The three PhD project will deal with different aspect of the project:
Candidates for all three positions are expected to have a relevant social science education e.g. within sociology, geography, economy, political science or anthropology. For the quantitative candidate documented qualifications within statistical methods, including the use of statistical programs such as Stata or R is required. For the two qualitative candidates competences in the performance of qualitative methods are required, as well as documented skills in Danish language at a proficiency level. Knowledge of energy consumption, consumer research and theories of practices is not a requirement, but all candidates should have an interest in requiring competences within these fields during their PhD study. eCAPE is a project financed by an advanced ERC grant. You can read more about the project at www.ecape.aau.dk .
You may obtain further information from Professor Kirsten Gram-Hanssen, Danish Building Research Institute, phone: +45 2360 5653, email: firstname.lastname@example.org concerning the scientific aspects of the stipend.
