The UCL ATSlab is looking to hire a post-doctoral researcher. Full details below:

Post-Doctoral Research Fellow: Airline Behaviour Modelling

Full time, fixed term for 24 months – further funding may become available

Grade 7 (£36,770- £44,388, inclusive of London Allowance)

Start date: as soon as possible

Location: London (UK)

The Air Transportation Systems Laboratory (ATSlab) at University College London (UCL) explores the interaction between air transportation, the economy, and the environment.  An increasingly important ATSlab tool for exploring aviation system responses to changes in policy, technology, capacity and passenger behaviour is an airline behaviour model which simulates airline competition by sequentially optimising network-level airline profits for competing airlines, using itinerary airfare, route flight frequency and aircraft type deployment as decision variables.

The researcher will be a core member of the Air Transportation Systems Laboratory (ATSLab), strengthen its modelling capabilities and

  • Be responsible for the further development of the ATSLab’s airline behaviour model
  • Closely collaborate with academic and industry partners in the UK and abroad
  • Assist in the expansion of ATSLab’s research portfolio by contributing to national and international grant applications and to scientific paper publications
  • Present ATSLab’s research outputs at national and international conferences
  • Contribute to PhD and MSc student supervision and teaching as required.

Essential requirements include a PhD in a related field, experience in optimisation and econometrics and excellent knowledge of solvers/software and packages/programming languages, e.g., CPLEX, R, Python.
