Postdoctoral position in Machine learning of humans' behavior in traffic
At the department of Electrical Engineering research and education are performed in the areas of Communication and Antenna systems, Systems and Control, Computer vision, Signal processing and Biomedical engineering, and Electric Power Engineering. Our knowledge is of use everywhere where there is advanced technology with integrated electronics. We work with challenges for a sustainable future in society of today, for example in the growing demands concerning efficient systems for communications and electrification.
We offer a dynamic and international work environment with about 200 employees from more than 20 countries, and with extensive national and international research collaborations with academia, industry and society.
The department provides about 100 courses, of which most are included in the Master’s Programs ”Biomedical Engineering”, “Electric Power Engineering”, ”Systems, Control and Mechatronics” and ”Communication Engineering”.
Information about the research
We invite applications for one post-doctoral position in Machine learning of humans' behavior in traffic. At the Mechatronics Group of the Electrical Engineering Department, we are engaged in both fundamental and applied research related to intelligent transportation systems. Ongoing research projects in this field focus, among others, on the design and the experimental validation of control algorithms for connected autonomous vehicles.
The successful candidate will join a team of post-docs and Ph. D. students, engaged in neighboring research, and is expected to contribute to the design of learning and prediction algorithms for humans' behavior in traffic. If possible and relevant, the achieved results will be demonstrated through experiments on full-scale vehicles and in collaboration with our industrial partners.
The research project is in collaboration with Ericsson and Zenuity and is strongly connected with ongoing research projects within the WASP (Walleberg Autonomous Systems Program).
The working time of post-doctoral staff is mainly devoted to research. Undergraduate teaching duties, not exceeding 20% of the working time, may include supervision of MSc students. The appointment is a full-time employment (not a scholarship) for a period of not more than two years (1+1).
A PhD (or close to completion) in system identification, computer science, control theory or neighboring relevant field with focus on machine learning and data analysis. Experience automotive control applications will be preferred.
Ability to initiate new research collaborations is essential. Good communication skills in oral and written English are required.
Chalmers continuously strives to be an attractive employer. Equality and diversity are substantial foundations in all activities at Chalmers.
