SMART is a major research enterprise established by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in partnership with the National Research Foundation of Singapore (NRF). SMART serves as an intellectual hub for international research collaborations, not only between MIT and Singapore, but also involving researchers from the region and beyond. At SMART, we identify and carry out research on critical problems of societal importance. SMART is a magnet attracting and anchoring global research talent, while simultaneously instilling and promoting a culture of translational research and entrepreneurship in Singapore. Five interdisciplinary research groups (IRGs) have been established to date: BioSystems and Micromechanics (BioSym), Centre for Environmental Sensing and Modeling (CENSAM), Future Urban Mobility (FM), Infectious Diseases (ID) and Low Energy Electronics Systems (LEES).

Postdoctoral Associate – SimMobility (Ref: IRG_FM_2011_013)
Future Urban Mobility Interdisciplinary Research Group

Project Overview:
SimMobility is an integrated system of mobility sensitive simulation models to evaluate future urban transportation scenarios. It aims to integrate and link together various mobility-sensitive behavioral models with state-of-the-art simulators to predict impacts of mobility demands on transportation networks, services and vehicular emissions.

Job description:

The postdoctoral Associate on this project will work on developing a simulation platform integrating mobility demands on transportation, vehicular emissions, land use and energy consumption. This will involve:
-Software structure design for microscopic traffic simulator, and developing the agent-based simulation platform.

-Developing the microscopic behavioural models as well as travel demand models and integrate them into the platform.

SimMobility will make it possible to simulate the effects of a portfolio of technology, policy and investment options under alternative future scenarios.

Requirements:
-PhD with a focus in: Transportation Simulation, Computer Science, Behavioural Modeling
-Civil engineering in transportation background will be a plus
-Prior experience with developing driving behaviour (car-following, lane changing, parking) is desired
-Highly conversant in C++ programming
-Prior experience in programming large software applications/simulators is required
-Prior experience with programming on Linux platform and Linux GUI development is desired
