Website for info and application: http://hud.ac/qw4 

We have an exciting opportunity for a Research Fellow to join the AI4UTMC research team within the School of Computing & Engineering, at the University of Huddersfield. The AI4UTMC research team is part of the research Centre on Autonomous and Intelligent Systems (CAIS), that is currently working on a variety of topics involving the design and use of AI techniques, for instance in robotics, healthcare, logistics, and supply chain optimisation. It provides the ideal environment for a researcher interested in the positive impact that AI can have on our society.

We are looking for a dedicated individual to work on the design of AI-based approaches for supporting innovative intelligent urban traffic management and control systems. The research team has great expertise in the field of intelligent traffic control and mobility, and excellent connections with industry and traffic authorities.

The work will entail the design and developments of AI-based techniques, and the experimental evaluation on real-world data provided by project partners. You will help review the available literature, design and develop techniques, collect and analyse data, and generate academic outputs. With a Doctoral qualification in AI or a closely related area, you will have an interest in AI and machine learning applications, and an enquiring and creative approach to challenges. Knowledge in both model-based (e.g., Automated Planning, CP) and data-driven AI will be a nice plus.

Informal enquiries are welcome to Mauro Vallati via email: m.vallati@hud.ac.uk
