Post-doc position to probe paucity of women executives in public transit

In a more environmentally-conscious world, public transportation is growing in importance. But is it growing in gender equity?

Lindsey Jaber, assistant professor in educational psychology, seeks to find out.

She invites emerging researchers to apply for a post-doctoral fellowship on her project “Transit Gender Sunshine List,” an assessment of the representation of women as CEOs and directors of Canadian transit systems.

The successful candidate will work with Dr. Jaber and the Canadian Urban Transit Research and Innovation Consortium (CUTRIC) to analyze the roles currently filled by women in Canadian and U.S. transit systems in order to propose innovative and inclusive ways to address gender parity-related issues in Canadian transit systems.

Applications are due by March 31; review the full posting and requirements.
