Postdoc opening at Lawrence Berkeley Lab

Posted to SIAG/LA: September 18, 2016.

The Scalable Solvers Group in the Computational Research Division at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory has an immediate opening for a postdoctoral fellow in large-scale traffic modeling. The candidate will participate in research projects to develop algorithms and software to predict near-future traffic flow from real-time measurements, and to help traffic management centers to improve performance of road networks and reduce congestion. The projects will focus on the problem of identifying trends in traffic patterns measured either on the freeway, on arterials, or both. Computational challenges include issues of model calibration, confidence, size and fidelity, real-time analysis, and model coupling. The research activities will include evaluation of existing algorithms using real data, development of new algorithms especially parallel algorithms for handing larger datasets, and integration of the new algorithms into various simulation models, at both research level and production level. Deliverables will include both software distributions as well as publications targeted at top-tier research conferences and journals.
