Job opportunity with MaaSLab

The UCL Energy Institute’s MaaSLab focuses on urban transport and explores new mobility concepts, such as Mobility as a Service and mobility on demand, and new technologies such as automated vehicles, and drones. Its expertise lies on transport and behavioural models, survey design and innovative data collection techniques, big data handling and visualization, new mobility service design and business models. 

The successful candidate will mainly work on MaaSLab’s research and innovation project HARMONY (Holistic Approach for Providing Spatial & Transport Planning Tools and Evidence to Metropolitan and Regional Authorities to Lead a Sustainable Transition to a New Mobility Era). HARMONY envisages developing a new generation of harmonised spatial and multimodal transport planning tools which comprehensively model the dynamics of the changing transport sector and spatial organisation, enabling metropolitan area authorities to lead the transition to a low carbon new mobility era in a sustainable manner.
