The Department of Civil Engineering in the Faculty of Engineering and Architectural Science at Ryerson University is now accepting applications for a Postdoctoral Fellow to help initiate a number of newly funded, cutting edge transportation research projects. The research involves developing adaptive network design models for urban logistics planning and operations—encompassing new public transport business models—to accommodate Big Data analytics and activity-based travel demand through the use of cyber-physical transport systems.
This is a minimum one year position with potential for extension. The start date of the position will be in the early spring of 2013. The candidate needs to have a PhD in an area related to transport systems, as the research will broadly cover one or more of the following areas: public transport, network optimization, urban logistics, activity-based micro-simulation, approximate dynamic programming, machine learning, transport economics, and/or cyber-physical transport systems. The candidate should have excellent communication skills and show an interest in supervising graduate students. Interdisciplinary collaboration with other growing research initiatives within Ryerson is expected (for example, DMZ: http://digitalmediazone.ryerson.ca/, CUE: http://www.cue.ryerson.ca/cue/index.html).
Interested applicants should send an email to Dr. Joseph Chow (email@example.com) with the following package: a CV, contact information of three references, and a statement of research interests.
