M-Five offers interesting and diverse fields of activity in an interdisciplinary team that provides scientifically based strategy and policy advice. We advise e.g. the Federal Ministries of Transport, Economics or Environment, but also the European Commission or the European Parliament. 

We work on systemic issues in the field of sustainable mobility research and consultancy as well as macroeconomic analyses. Climate protection is an important element of our consultancy. But the economic and social dimensions of sustainability are also part of our analyses. 

Have you completed your doctorate or are you about to do so? You want to continue working scientifically, but now want to use your theoretical knowledge in practical and concrete applications? We can offer you this entry into science-based policy advice and the further use of the findings of your studies. Simply get in touch with Ms Tatjana Griffith at +49 721 824 818 90.

  • Further development of our analyses to evaluate and assess the impact of transport, technology and climate policies on mobility, e.g. electric mobility and diffusion of technologies in fleets

Your profile: 

  • Studies in transport science, geosciences or a similar subject area 
  • Physicists and sustainability experts with an interest in transport & mobility are also welcome 
  • Good knowledge of Word and Excel
