Research Assistant in Smart Mobility Management and Operation

Technical University of Denmark, Denmark has an opening postdoctoral associate position in applied mathematics. All candidates regardless of citizenship are eligible to apply before January 31, 2019.

The Machine Learning for Smart Mobility Group and the Transport Modelling Division of the Department of Management Engineering at the Technical University of Denmark (DTU) is looking for excellent applicants to join the Division, starting on March 1st, 2019 or later.

The successful applicant will work on research focused on tradable credit schemes for mobility management, an innovative system for the control and coordination of multi-modal transportation systems.

We are looking for excellent applicants with MSc background on Transportation, Economics, Applied Mathematics, Computer Science and Simulation or Operations Research with the interest and ambition to pursue PhD studies.

The focus of this research is in Transportation Modelling lying in the intersection between, Network Simulation, Dynamic Optimization and Behaviour Modelling.

Historically, inefficiencies such as congestion and vehicular emissions have been generally addressed with information provision and pricing. Recently, quantity control has been under the spotlight in transportation research, leveraging from successful applications in other economic sectors, such as the communications, energy or environmental sectors. Limited supply is in the end a scarcity problem that can be dealt with a price instrument, a quantity instrument or a combination of both, such as tradable credit schemes (TCS). Within a TCS system, a regulator provides an initial endowment of mobility credits to all potential travellers. In order to use a transportation system, users need to spend a certain number of permits (i.e.: tariff) that could vary with the conditions/performance of the specific mobility alternative used. The permits can be bought and sold in a market that is monitored by the regulator at a price that is determined by demand and supply interactions. In this project we aim at leveraging the existing theoretical foundation on TCS and focus on its potential deployment and impact assessment on a realistic setting. More specifically, the RA will work closely with its supervisor to develop a realistic modelling framework for testing different operational designs. The project will be rooted around a the implementation in realistic simulation applications. Other data sources, namely from controlled experiments to be designed by the team, can be incorporated into the project to further test the developed frameworks.

This project is a partnership with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), particularly on the behavioural and network modelling.

Please submit your online application no later than 31 January 2019 (local time). To apply, please open the link “Apply online”, fill out the online application form.
