UCL Energy Institute's MaaSLab are looking for a Research Fellow in Transport Modelling.
The main purpose of the role is to work with MaaSLab at UCL Energy Institute on the development of transport models, with a strong focus on transport network simulation and the incorporation of new mobility services.
The post holder will assist in the expansion of MaaSLab’s research portfolio by contributing to national and international grant applications and to scientific paper publications, as well as undertaking and contributing to administrative work for specific projects of MaaSLab, contributing to MSc student supervision and adding value to the enterprise activity of MaaSLab.
The post has funding until the 14 April 2022 in the first instance, further funding to support the post may be available.
UCL Energy Institute’s MaaSLab sits within a wider transport and energy group encompassing work on aviation and surface transport.
Started in 2016, MaaSLab focuses on urban transport and explores new mobility concepts, such as Mobility as a Service, and new technologies such as automated vehicles, and drones.
MaaSLab’s 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.
Our ideal candidate will have a Postgraduate degree in engineering, mathematics and computer science which a clear focus on transport modelling, as well as experience in transportation planning processes using transportation modelling and simulation tools (e.g. AIMSUN, SUMO, PTV VISUM, PTV VISSIM, MATSIM, CUBE, SATURN).
Experience in project management and defining processes and frameworks for the integration of new mobility services in transportation network models, capable of measuring traffic, energy and emission related indicators is desirable.
