The post offers an exciting opportunity for an outstanding researcher to support the delivery of two EU funded Horizon 2020 research projects. You will work as part of the Sustainable Transport Research Group (STRG) of the Civil Engineering department and will contribute to the development of the projects’ deliverables. Both projects revolve around the provision of modern mobility services and our team is heavily involved in the development of computational intelligence and machine learning algorithms for applications such as traffic forecasting and routing optimisation. You will have a minimum of good honours and postgraduate degrees in a subject associated to computer science, transportation or engineering and a doctorate level qualification (or be close to attaining such qualification) in a related area. A good research track record in computational intelligence, machine learning, soft computing, transportation services and other relevant fields will be favourable.

 

The University of Wolverhampton is committed to equality and valuing diversity, and currently holds an Athena SWAN Bronze Award.

 

Potential candidates wishing to find out further details regarding the position or the project are encouraged to contact Dr Panos Georgakis (P.Georgakis@wlv.ac.uk) before applying.
