Job Description

CEE currently seeks to complement existing faculty members within the group and drive further research excellence with the intention to hire exceptional tenure-track faculty candidates in the area of future urban mobility and transportation, and in particular, with research expertise in the following areas:

  • Connected autonomous vehicle (CAV) based traffic dynamics modelling and smart traffic control in a connected environment.
    • CAV technologies will transform the characteristics of traffic flow and the way vehicles travel on roads (car-following behaviour and lane-changing behaviour), revolutionizing network-level traffic dynamics by improving safety, capacity, and stability. Smart traffic control strategies in the presence of vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2I) and vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) communication, including but not limited to non-signalized/signalized intersection management, merging/diverging traffic control, and variable speed limit. Candidates with prior experience and an excellent track record in CAV-based traffic dynamics modelling and smart traffic control are encouraged.
  • Intelligent driving and reliability testbed for automated driving
    • Driving intelligence and reliability tests are critical to the development and deployment of CAVs. Advanced control and behaviour models need to be evaluated in real-world testbeds by considering evolving technologies and more general infrastructure topologies. The candidate should be able to set up a reliable testbed for CAVs and contribute to major collaborative programs with other departments in the Faculty of Engineering such as Mechanical Engineering (ME) and Electric and Computer Engineering (ECE) and other faculties within NUS.
  • Qualifications

    The successful candidate must have an earned doctorate in Civil and Environmental Engineering (CEE) and/or Electric and Computer Engineering (ECE) or a related field, with credentials suitable for appointments at the level of Assistant Professor or Associate Professor
