Post-doctoral Fellow/Research Associate in Air Transportation Modeling Research (several positions)
The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology
Kowloon, Hong Kong

Several Post-doctoral Fellow / Research Associate positions in Air Transportation Modeling Research are available in the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering.

The research will be supervised by Prof Rhea LIEM. (Please contact Prof Liem (rpliem for questions about the scope of the positions.

The multidisciplinary research team also includes faculty members from the Department of Physics (HKUST) and Department of Science and Environmental Studies (EdUHK).

The appointees will work with other team members (including PhD students) on route coordination and optimization for aircraft arrival, focusing on the terminal area at the Hong Kong International Airport.

The research work will involve data analytics, computational modeling of complex systems, statistical modeling, sensitivity analysis, and optimization.

Although the research will be fundamental in nature, the research team will work closely with relevant industry practitioners to ensure that the developed methods can help solve real-world problems, e.

g. arrival delays, air space congestion, weather-aware decision making, in the long term. These forward-looking solutions will be critical once air transportation goes back to the pre-pandemic level and continues its upward growth trend.

Applicants should :

  • possess a PhD degree in either Aerospace Engineering, Air Transportation, Physics, Applied Mathematics, Computational Science or relevant engineering disciplines with background research experience;
  • have strong Mathematics background and programming skills (mainly Python);
  • preferably have experience in air transportation research and / or complex system modeling;
  • be fluent in English, both spoken and written; and
  • be open-minded and a fast learner, independent thinker, excellent team player and leader.
  • Duration : 1 year, renewable)

    Starting salary will be commensurate with qualifications and experience. Fringe benefits including annual leave, medical and dental benefits will be provided.
