Postdoctoral position in safety-aware vehicular routing at Chalmers University of Technology

Description

Our main goal is to develop real-time vehicle routing and resource allocation
strategies for a vehicular network, with emphasis on accident scenarios in
large-scale road networks.
We will rely on an inter-disciplinary approach between traffic theory,
communication technologies, and accident risk management. The postdoc will be
placed at the Automatic Control group, but will be shared with the
Communication Systems and the Vehicle Safety Groups at Chalmers University of
Technology. The postdoc will be involved in the work of the SAFER Vehicle and
Traffic Safety Research Center.
In addition, the postdoc will work in 2018 for at least 50% of her/his time
on the COPPLAR project, an interdisciplinary project on cooperating automated
vehicles, collaborating with researchers in communication, sensing, and
control, leading both theoretical and experimental activities.
The working time of post-doctoral staff is mainly devoted to research. The
position is jointly funded by SAFER, Transport Chalmers Area of Advance, and
the Department of Electrical Engineering. The appointment is a full-time
employment (not a scholarship), with an attractive salary and full social
benefits, for a period of 1 year, with the possibility to extend, based on
the candidate's performance and available funding.
Position summary
Full-time temporary employment. The position is limited to 1 year.
Qualifications
A PhD (or close to completion) in transportation, statististical signal
processing, control theory, or a relevant field to the description is
required. Background in at least one of the following areas is preferred:
modeling of transportation network, distributed optimal control, cooperative
sensing and communication, multi-target tracking, constrained and optimal
control. Ability to initiate research collaborations, work in a team and be
open for the application of results is important. Good communication skills,
good command of English is essential; good programming skills. We especially
encourage female candidates to apply.
Chalmers continuously strives to be an attractive employer. Equality and
diversity are substantial foundations in all activities at Chalmers.
