Postdoc funding in the field of AI for Transport systems for the years 2020-2021

Important days
Submission due: April 17th  2019
Notification: June 14th  2019
Project start due:  January 1st 2020

The Area of Advance Transport and Chalmers AI Research Centre (CHAIR) are offering funding for postdoc positions in the area ‘AI and transport systems’ with a maximum of SEK 1 200 000/postdoc (600 000 from AoA Transport and 600 000 from CHAIR) per year during a period of maximum two years.

The postdocs must perform research that is clearly linked to the research agenda of at least one of the research profiles of AoA Transport (Sustainable Vehicle Technologies, Traffic Safety, or Transport Efficiency and Customer Adapted Logistics) and have a clear AI-angle relating to CHAIR. In order to strengthen the connections within the AoA Transport, we especially appreciate ideas involving one or several postdocs supporting common research themes with potential links to several different research groups, departments and research profiles within AoA Transport. We aim for a 50/50 gender balance in this program. The recruitment should be directed towards individuals not employed by Chalmers (if they have a PhD degree from Chalmers they must have worked as researchers somewhere else at least one year in-between).

The postdocs are preferably recruited to be in place as soon as possible and if not in place before January 1st 2020 the funding may be withdrawn. The application should be written in English and be a maximum of two pages long and we need your application as soon as possible but no later than April 17, 2019. The decision will be announced no later than June 14.

Note: The call is open only to Chalmers researchers

The applications should be submitted to
