Subject: Road transport decarbonization
Following FEEM's long-time tradition of successful international post-graduate and doctoral training, and Eni's interest in supporting innovation and excellence worldwide, FEEM and Eni will jointly support Marie Sklodowska-Curie Individual Fellowship applications.
For the current MSCA European Fellowships call, FEEM and Eni are interested in receiving proposals in the following area:
• Road transport decarbonization: the role of policies and technologies in future scenarios.
In particular, the subject of the research activity is the analysis of future mobility scenarios, to be applied at national or European level. The research, which will be developed in collaboration with Eni, can exploit the availability of an existing model, that has currently been developed by Eni and validated on historical data available for Italy, limited to light-duty vehicles. The current model may be extended to other modes of transport (e.g. buses, freight transport, etc.) and/or can be applicated to other countries or to Europe, depending on the research activity proposed by the candidate. The existing model currently supports the evaluation of some transport impacts (including WTW energy consumption, LCA analysis for the vehicles and the infrastructure, CO2 and pollutants emissions, etc.) as well as the investment and operational costs of different technologies. The expected output of the research should include a comparison of possible alternatives in the context of the current energy transition towards the decarbonization of the energy system.
1. Candidates must be in possession of a doctoral degree or have at least four years of full-time equivalent research experience at the deadline for the submission of proposals to the European Commission (11 September)
2. Eligible researchers can be of any nationality and must not have resided or carried out their main activity (work, studies, etc.) in Italy for more than 12 months in the 3 years immediately before the call deadline.
If you meet the eligibility criteria and are interested in exploring the opportunities offered by the Marie Sklodowska-Curie Actions to work at FEEM with the support of Eni, please submit your application on-line through the FEEM web platform before July 28th (internal deadline extended), sending:
1. a detailed curriculum vitae, including the list of publications;
2. an abstract of the research proposal (max 1 page).
The selected candidates will be supported in the development of their project proposals that must be submitted to the European Commission by September 11th.
