Functieomschrijving

The project Responsible decision making on gas aims to study factors that influence public acceptability of existing and new developments in the gas sector, such as natural gas, hydrogen, and biogas. Next, it aims to study which institutional and administrative changes are necessary to achieve a responsible energy system. You will design and run studies (e.g. questionnaires, experiments, longitudinal research) to examine the effects of individual factors (e.g. people’s values) and institutional factors (e.g. governance) on public acceptability of various developments in the gas and energy sector. You will publish the results of your studies in international scientific journals as well as popular magazines and newsletters, and present your studies at international conferences and to private partners. Based on the results of your research, you will formulate and propose practical and policy implications for developing a responsible energy transition, with or without gas-related developments. You will work in an interdisciplinary team and collaborate with researchers in Innovation and Policy sciences from the Technical University of Delft. You will also collaborate with different private and public partners in the project which are involved in the gas and energy sector. You will play an important role in managing project activities and coordinating the collaboration between the members of the research team and the private partners.
