Research Associate Position at the Centre for Advanced Spatial Analysis

ucl“The SCALE project: (Small Changes leAd to Large Effects) Changing Energy Costs in Transport and Location Policy is an EPSRC funded research project being undertaken jointly between the UCL Centre for Advanced Spatial Analysis and UCL Centre for Transport Studies. Two Research Associate vacancies are available, one based in each department.  This advertisement relates to the CASA based post which focuses on land use transportation models. This CASA based post is funded for three years by EPSRC.  All researchers, plus the PhD student (who will be supervised by Shi Zhou in Computer Science) will interact with the team set up by CASA. We are looking for a researcher with expertise in modelling complex systems who has good skills in programming and who could develop a suite of computer programs for the land use transportation modelling effort which will underpin one arm of SCALE. We want someone who will be able to wrestle with the science, and be able to translate this into computable forms which interface with a variety of modules and data bases. Experience in GIS would be an advantage but not essential.”
