Job Opportunities

Imperial College London – Centre for Transport Studies

A Research Associate is required to contribute to an ongoing project on the impact of climate change on infrastructure networks. The successful applicant will develop models for the prediction of quantitative impacts of climate hazards on the services provided by transport infrastructure networks. The work will be undertaken under the supervision of Prof John Polak and Dr Panagiotis Angeloudis and will form part of the Climate-KIC (www.climate-kic.org) project OASIS (www.oasislmf.org), which aims to develop a new generation of infrastructure hazard modelling and assessment tools.  

 

This post will be based in the Centre for Transport Studies (CTS) at Imperial College London. CTS is one of largest and most successful multidisciplinary transport research groups in Europe consisting of a core staff of over 80 academics, researchers and students and a wider network of more than 120 researchers distributed throughout all the Departments of the College. CTS currently leads a number of major national and internal research projects and has extensive links with government, local authorities and industry. CTS has achieved top rating on all the UK Government’s Research Assessment Exercises.

Applicants should have or be close to completing a PhD in the reliability of large-scale infrastructure networks (with a strong preference for those with experience in the analysis of transport networks) and a strong background in scientific programming, preferably in C#. 

The appointment will be for a fixed term of 12 months. Salary will be in the range £32,100 to £37,570 per annum.

Imperial College London – Centre for Transport Studies and Department of Computing

A Research Associate is required to develop and implement new methods to provide situational awareness capabilities in multimodal urban transport networks. The successful candidate will develop new methods to flexibility integrate and combine information from existing and emerging transport sensor systems (including social media) and to consistently propagate uncertainty through the data fusion process. A range of potential applications will be explored including those relating to the improved modelling of transport system performance, improved transport system management and control, and improved traveller information services.

The work will form part of Cisco´s Future City research programme at Imperial College London and will be based principally in Imperial´s Centre for Transport Studies. The successful candidate will however, work closely with other members of the Cisco Future City research programme and with Cisco staff, based in Cisco´s Greenwich headquarters.

The work will be undertaken under the supervision of Prof John Polak (Centre for Transport Studies) and Dr Julie McCann (Department of Computing). CTS is one of largest and most successful multidisciplinary transport research groups in Europe and is an acknowledged centre of excellence in the area of intelligent transport systems, with an especially strong track record in the areas of pervasive sensing, intelligent network management and control, traffic modelling and simulation, user behaviour and traveller information systems. The Department of Computing is one of the largest computing departments in the UK and is a world leader in academic research in computer science. Particular strengths related to this project are in the areas of distributed computing, adaptive embedded systems and big data processing as well as computing theory, AI and computational aspects of management science.

Applicants should have or be very close to completing a PhD in a relevant area of transport network modelling and/or intelligent transport systems. Familiarity with data fusion methods, sensor network systems and a strong background in scientific programming is also highly desirable.

The appointment will be for a fixed term of 24 months. Salary will be in the range £32,100 to £40,720 per annum.
