We're hiring: Senior Research Fellow in Software Engineering for Transport Planning
28 January 2020
UCL Energy Institute's MaaSLab are looking for a Senior Research Fellow in Software Engineering for Transport Planning.
The main purpose of the role is to contribute to the management of 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) as well as other MaaSLab projects.
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.
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 (MSc or equivalent) in computer science, software engineering, data science, applied mathematics, transport engineering, physics, or related fields, as well as a either a PhD (near to completion), or commensurate research or industry experience in computer science, software engineering, data science, mathematics, or related fields.
Knowledge of transport modelling theory (e.g. transport simulation models, dynamic travel behaviour modelling for new on-demand mobility services, traffic simulation, etc.) is desirable.
If you have specific questions about the role please contact Maria Kamargianni at firstname.lastname@example.org.
