  • Contribute to research publications and funding proposals
  • Assist with the administration and management of research project, including preparation of presentations and other tasks assigned by the PI.


A PhD degree or above in industrial systems engineering, management of technology, maritime engineering, systems engineering, or other related quantitative research fields.

Preferred Skills

  • A good understanding and interest in the nature of international shipping and energy usage in international shipping
  • Relevant research experience in emission projection, especially in the maritime industry
  • Preferably with strong modelling and programming skills
