We are hiring!


Academic positions:

Do you have research expertise in Choice Modelling, Machine Learning and/or Mathematical Psychology? Are you interested in conducting methodological research to bridge these disciplines? 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 three early career researchers to take part in the ERC-funded project “SYNERGY”. The project’s aim is to combine key techniques from Mathematical Psychology, Choice Modelling and Machine Learning, and help to develop new approaches. The role will involve working at the cutting edge of the three 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 at least one of the three key 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 2nd of October, 2023. Follow the link below for further information.
