Just filling the last little bits - I hope - on my MUP and then i'll be off. I'm interested in academia, but a professor I value the opinion of suggested that I take some time working in the field to get a bit of experience and inspiration before going any further. My present interests are leaning toward the question of the functioning of public transit systems in small cities, such as might be seen in Kotzebue, Juneau, etc. since they seem to go totally off of the edge of the map in terms of the "usual" excuses of transit requiring large populations and tokyo-esque densities.
That implies that I should be looking for work which at least in part involves planning transit in small cities. I don't know how i'll be able to filter that particular search, or how I might go about finding positions like that. Does anyone have any advice in that regard?
