Research-Fellow-(Operations-Research-and-Control in Mathematical Modelling)

​Established in 1981, the SCHOOL OF ELECTRICAL AND ELECTRONIC ENGINEERING (EEE) is one of the founding Schools of the Nanyang Technological University. Built on a culture of excellence, the School is renowned for its high academic standards and strong tradition in research. To support teaching and cutting-edge research, EEE is host to 11 research centres and more than 50 laboratories, which are well-equipped with modern facilities and state-of-the-art equipment. With about 200 faculty members and an enrolment of more than 4,000, of which about 1,300 are graduate students, it is one of the largest EEE schools in the world.

A candidate for a Research Fellow position is sought, who will be placed in my project on “Distributed Adaptive Urban Traffic Signal Control based on V2X Information Infrastructure”, which has started and will last till March 2019. The candidate is expected to undertake research on modelling a large urban traffic network, and developing computationally efficient traffic light scheduling and control algorithms, which are implementable within a V2X infrastructure.


The candidate is expected to have a PhD degree in the areas of operations research and/or control with  a strong background in mathematical modelling, optimization and control. Past experience in urban traffic signal control and software simulation of large-scale networks will be a plus.

The salary is competitive including a base salary proportional to the candidate's research experience, and an annual performance bonus. The first contract is for one year, and can be renewed up to 3.5 years. An interested candidate may send his/her CV, a list of publications with relevant journal impact factors, and a list of three references to me via my email address at
