Post-doctoral Research: Acceptability of Low-Carbon Lifestyles

The Environmental Psychology group at the University of Groningen invites applications for a temporary post-doctoral research position on the acceptability of low-carbon lifestyles.

To effectively mitigate climate change, people have to adopt low-carbon lifestyles, meaning that they have to engage in a wide range of low-carbon behaviors. Hence, we need to understand how such broader low-carbon lifestyle changes can be achieved. The project aims to identify how people conceive of low-carbon lifestyles, to what extent people are willing to accept and adopt low-carbon lifestyles, and which factors affect the likelihood that low-carbon lifestyle changes are achieved.

Specifically, the project aims to understand how low-carbon lifestyles may affect an individual’s quality of life and to what extent individual, social, and contextual factors affect evaluations of low-carbon lifestyles. Moreover, the research aims to identify under which conditions low-carbon lifestyles will be more acceptable and which strategies and policies can promote the adoption of low-carbon lifestyles.
