Position: Research Fellow - Large Transport Network Simulation Model Systems
Institution: University of Sydney
Department: Institute of Transport and Logistics Studies
Location: Sydney, New South Wales, Australia
Duties: Digital disruption in transportation systems aligned with driverless vehicles, mobility contracts that are mode neutral, and telematics to track the performance of future transport services, are now mainstream to critical research agendas of government and industry. The noticeable lagging feature is the behavioural, social and commercial implications of this fast changing scene. Understanding how users, businesses and society in general might respond to these potential new modes of transport, and what this will mean for network performance, will be crucial to their success. The research fellow will contribute to the broad area of traveller behaviour research which has a focus on both demand side and supply side research agenda
Requirements: We invite application from individuals with skills in developing and implementing large scale Integrated Transport and Land Use Models (ITLUM). Applicants must have strong skills in computer programming as well as in the design of data management systems. The applicants should have experience in C++ specifically and manipulation and processing of spatial data
