ESD Research Opportunities

The Sustainable Urban Mobility Laboratory at SUTD develops data-driven models and tools to reduce the environmental impacts of passenger and urban freight transport. We are currently seeking researchers to participate in projects relating to neighborhood accessibility measures and urban resource flows. See: http://mobility.sutd.edu.sg.

Project Overview

The pandemic has renewed interest in neighborhoods and what the immediate locale can provide to city residents. Our team is developing tools to assess the environmental and transportation qualities of dense, urban neighborhoods or districts. This project is in collaboration with the Future Cities Laboratory (FCL), part of the Singapore-ETH Centre in Singapore. Research activities include the development of:

  • A framework for predicting urban activities and assessing vibrancy of districts;
  • A framework for tracking and modeling the resultant resource and material flows through districts;
  • Visualizations of mobility and accessibility, leveraging open datasets to profile the quality of multimodal transport options within and across urban districts.

Responsibilities

  • Carry out primary and secondary data collection to characterize urban resource flows
  • Analyze and visualize collected datasets
  • Develop models for predicting urban resource flows
  • Opportunities to co-supervise graduate students and other junior team members

Requirements

  • Ph.D. in Systems Engineering, Environmental Science, Urban Planning, Industrial Ecology or related fields
  • Competence in life cycle assessment, material flow analysis
  • Experience in surveys or handling of real-world datasets
  • Comfortable with statistics and data analysis
  • Knowledge of Python, R, GIS software is an advantage

We seek motivated candidates who are able to exercise project and research management skills, and are ready to thrive in a dynamic, multicultural and multidisciplinary team. All positions involve opportunities to disseminate study findings to sponsors, in public forums, and peer-reviewed academic journals and conferences, thus requiring excellent command of written English and oral presentation skills.

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

The positions are for one year, with the possibility of extension.

Interested applicants are to submit their full CV, cover letter (optional), three references, and an English technical writing sample to Associate Professor Lynette Cheah at lynette@sutd.edu.sg. We regret that only shortlisted candidates will be notified.
