Understanding the Dynamics of Domestic Electricity Supply, Consumption and Demand Reduction

23 May 2012

Exciting new three year interdisciplinary studentship available in the School of Psychology.

This 3-year interdisciplinary studentship (ESRC DTC+3 joint with EPSRC) aims to examine how people understand and use their existing domestic electricity supply (mapping the material, cultural and psychological benefits that this has for them - warmth, communications, identity futures, etc.) and to explore the acceptability of possible future transformations in that supply and the services it can provide. It will be jointly supervised by Professor Nick Pidgeon (Cardiff School of Psychology) and Professor Karen Henwood (Cardiff School of Social Sciences). The successful candidate will have a background in applied, social or community psychology, qualitative social sciences (e.g. sociology or human geography), or science and technology studies.  Expected start date is October 2012.
