UCD Post-doctoral Research Fellow Level 1 # 015445

UCD Post-doctoral Research Fellow Level 1

Position Summary

Urban areas host 70% of the EU population, and it is estimated that this will increase up to 84% by 2050, exacerbating the EU cities’ current daunting problems such as air quality and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. In 2019, the transport sector was accountable for 27% of total EU GHG emissions, of which road transport accounted for approximately 72%. Many cities are looking to promote public and non-motorised forms of transport to provide access to safe, affordable, accessible, and sustainable transport systems for all citizens. Many cities in Europe and worldwide are witnessing an increasing interest in shared and multi-modal mobility services using modes such as carsharing, bikes, ride-hailing, e-scooters facilitated by the emergence of intermediary mobility-on-demand platforms. Mobility services accessible ‘on demand’ can be achieved by an integrated Multimodal Intelligent Transport System (M-ITS) incorporating both motorised and non-motorised transport as well as private and public systems through the concept of Mobility as a Service (MaaS) Sustainable mobility alternatives such as a fully integrated and seamless multimodal mobility system that can be made widely available with the communication and computation advancements. RE-ROUTE an Integrated Intelligent multi-modal Transport Infrastructure: distributed localised decision-making at the network edge forms an international, interdisciplinary, and inter-sectoral network of institutions with complementary skills, working on a joint research and knowledge transfer programme to improve the multi-modal Mobility-as-a- Service transport integration through localised Edge-based real-time data sharing, decentralised decision making, and localised network that places the processing at the proximity of data, contribute to evidence-based policy and physical infrastructure development and developing a unique skill set for the participating partners and improving their career prospects in the emerging ITS job market.

RE-ROUTE is funded under MSCA SE Horizon Europe Call and several of its technical tasks of the project are carried out through the secondments within the consortium partners institutions.
This is a research focused role, where you will conduct a specified programme of research supported by research training and development under the supervision and direction of a Principal Investigator.

The primary purpose of the role is to further develop your research skills and competences, including the processes of publication in peer-reviewed academic publications, the development of funding proposals, the mentorship of graduate students along with the opportunity to develop your skills in research led teaching.

In addition to the Principal Duties and Responsibilities listed below, the successful candidate will also carry out the following duties specific to this project:

    • Design and development of Shared mobility solution including multiple modes of transport.

    • Design and development of machine learning and optimisation techniques for edge-based solution in

      shared mobility case studies.

    • Multi-modal transport simulation

    • Engage with project partners, and secondees to ensure smooth running of the project

    • Day to day management of the project, designing and maintaining the project website, prepare and edit content related to project progress and news.

    • Secondment management which includes supporting the secondee and the host to plan a secondment, Pre-secondment Meetings and coordination.

    • • Preparing project data management plan and set up and maintain the data sharing platforms.

Competition closes:  12th January 2023
