The Faculty of Engineering & Technology is looking to recruit a Research Fellow to work on a 9 month fixed term contract.

The Research Fellow will work on a project to develop an advanced cycling risk prediction model to enable a warning system to prevent accidents under hazardous circumstances. The task would involve using emerging methodologies to develop strategies and tools for the identification of cycling hazards and the relevant risk factors, the analysis of the correlation between the risk factors and cycling accidents, the construction of a cycling risk prediction model, and the development of cycling safety management, measures and policies.

You will assist with the planning, coordination and implementation of the project and research resources and budgets in addition to contributing to publications and dissemination of research outputs, including presentations at project working meetings and related conferences

You will hold a PhD in Transport Engineering or Risk Modelling related subject ideally with knowledge of accident data mining and transport risks with excellent planning/project management and research skills.
