We are hiring!


Academic positions:

Do you have research expertise in Choice Modelling and/or Machine Learning? Are you interested in conducting methodological research to develop new approaches? Would you like to implement novel methodologies to advance the state-of-the-art in behavioural modelling and make a real-world impact?

The Choice Modelling Centre at the Institute for Transport Studies seeks to hire two Research Fellows to take part in the ERC-funded project “SYNERGY”. The project aims to combine key techniques from Mathematical Psychology, Choice Modelling and Machine Learning, and help to develop new approaches. The roles will involve working at the cutting edge of the two aforementioned areas of research for developing modelling frameworks that will actively shape future policy making. The successful candidates will need to demonstrate sufficient theoretical and technical knowledge of the disciplines involved in the project and possess an open mind to new ideas and approaches. Knowledge of a programming language, with an emphasis on R and/or Python, is also strongly advised.

The closing date for applications is the 16th of April, 2024. Follow the links below for further information.
