The Consumer Data Research Centre (CDRC) at Leeds delivers insights into human behaviour using consumer and commercial datasets, and we are looking for a Research Fellow in Urban Mobility who can help us deliver greater impact from our data assets and projects.
We’re seeking an ambitious Research Fellow in Urban Mobility fascinated by urban mobility data who can support work on advancing theory and methods relating to urban mobility and most crucially, work on emerging insights that ultimately have impacts on policy.
You will work closely with Professor Ed Manley, to develop new ideas and approaches for modelling urban mobility. You will gain experience in a rapidly developing, interdisciplinary field that will benefit a future career in academia or data science.
The successful candidate will have the opportunity to work with colleagues from Leeds Institute for Data Analytics, along with our external partners. We are currently working with Wejo and Spectus to make connected vehicle, mobility and location data more readily available for research purposes.
You will have an approach to research and level of technical expertise that allows you to draw out new insights and models of mobility behaviour from large datasets.
