Active Recruitments

Postdoctoral Scholar in Sustainable Freight Transportation Technologies 

The College of Engineering – Center for Environmental Research and Technology (CE-CERT) at the University of California, Riverside, is seeking a highly motivated postdoctoral scholar to join our Transportation Systems Research (TSR) group in conducting research related to sustainable freight transportation technologies. Candidates with knowledge and research experience in freight travel demand modeling, vehicle scheduling and routing, vehicle energy and emissions modeling, geospatial data analysis, advanced optimization, machine learning, and high performance computing, are encouraged to apply.

The TSR group consists of a multidisciplinary team of more than 20 faculty members, graduate and undergraduate students, and staff engineers. We conduct research in the areas of advanced vehicles and intelligent transportation systems with a focus on developing and evaluating technologies that improve the travel and energy efficiencies as well as reduce the environmental impact of transportation activities. Several recent and current research projects involve the development of novel sustainable freight transportation technologies, all the way from conceptualization to design, simulation, prototyping, and real-world demonstration.

Specific activities of the successful candidate may include:
•    Develop new vehicle scheduling and routing techniques and evaluate their effectiveness
•    Model energy, emissions, and air quality impacts of freight movement
•    Conduct field testing of new vehicle scheduling and routing techniques
•    Perform mining, analysis, visualization, and interpretation of vehicle activity big data
•    Assist in producing high-quality publications, reports, and research proposals
•    Support additional related research projects as needed

Community Scientist Liaison

The community scientist liaison will work with our faculty teams assisting in managing existing and successfully launching new air monitoring campaigns and air quality outreach efforts in our region. The incumbent will work with the faculty and the community to ensure air monitoring campaigns are technically sound as well as appropriately address the communities’ concerns. The incumbent will represent the ‘pulse’ of the community, i.e., understand the needs and wants of the community and represent the community in our internal development of community- based projects and proposals with our faculty.

The community scientist liaison will also be responsible for maintaining our community air quality science outreach program, including: 1) maintaining a network of experts in the policy, advocacy, technical, environmental, and academic fields; 2) develop materials & help train the community in air quality monitoring placement, use, and data interpretation and related subjects, with the assistance of the experts; and 3) create an engagement platform through the web and social media and host regular community engagement events to grow our communities’ awareness of problems and solutions and increase our region’s ability to leverage positive change.

The community scientist liaison will lead a team of undergraduate assistants and others to accomplish the goals of the projects and outreach program. The program team will involve expert researchers and graduate students to assist with the technical aspects of the program and our departmental outreach specialist and web programmer to assist with outreach related aspects of the program.
