At the Institute of Transport and Economics, the Chair of Big Data Analytics in Transportation is seeking to employ a

Research Associate / PhD Student (100% / 1 FTE)
(subject to personal qualification employees are remunerated according to salary group E 13 TV-L).

  • Route planning (e.g., vehicle routing, traveling salesperson problem)
  • Time series analysis

We request very good English skills as well as a strong passion for answering to and developing solutions for data analytical questions. German language skills and some initial experience in answering questions related to transportation and/or economics are desirable, but not mandatory. The same applies to university teaching (for example, by supervising tutorials), scientific work and/or the implementation of collaborative software projects (including the use of Git, Docker, etc.).
