ESD Research Opportunities

The Singapore University of Technology and Design (SUTD) was established in 2009 in collaboration with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), to advance knowledge and nurture technically-grounded leaders and innovators to serve societal needs. See: https://sutd.edu.sg.

The Sustainable Urban Mobility Laboratory at SUTD is currently seeking postdoctoral researchers to participate in projects relating to freight transportation and urban logistics. These projects are in collaboration with the Singapore-MIT Alliance for Research and Technology (SMART), as well as local authorities in Singapore, including the Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA), and Land Transport Authority (LTA). See: http://mobility.sutd.edu.sg.

Project Overview

The team is designing next-generation data collection, modeling and solutions for urban freight and city logistics. Research activities include the development and application of:

  • An integrated framework for urban freight data collection, leveraging state-of-the-art sensing and surveying technologies. The objective is to develop proof-of-concept of a coherent, scalable and holistic collection of freight data from related freight agents (shippers, carriers, receivers), along with vehicle and shipment tracking.
  • Urban freight demand and behavioral models, covering all relevant agents and their mutual interactions along supply chains.
  • Urban logistics solutions, such as consolidation centers, centralized receiving stations at multi-tenanted buildings, and commercial vehicle parking management.

Responsibilities

  • Contribute to the design, implementation, and execution of freight transportation surveys, including commodity flow surveys and truck driver surveys.
  • Analyze collected and assembled freight-related datasets.

Requirements

  • Ph.D. in Transportation, Freight, Logistics, Computer Science, Statistics or related fields.
  • Experience in surveys or handling of real-world datasets.
  • Experience in GIS software preferred.
  • Strong analytical and programming skills an advantage.

We seek motivated candidates who are able to demonstrate project and research management expertise, and are ready to thrive in a dynamic, multicultural and multidisciplinary team. All positions involve opportunities to:

  • Co-supervise graduate students and other junior team members.
  • Disseminate study findings to sponsors, in public forums, and academic journals/conferences, thus requiring excellent command of written English and oral presentation skills.

SUTD offers a competitive salary that commensurate with experience, and benefits.

Interested applicants are to submit their full CV, cover letter and three references (to include referee names and contact information) to Assistant Professor Lynette Cheah at lynette@sutd.edu.sg. We regret that only shortlisted candidates will be notified.
