Current Openings

C2SMART has a diverse array of USDOT- and other-funded projects in the area of connected vehicles, intelligent transportation systems (ITS), and other big data analytics in support of emerging technologies and their applications to solve transportation/mobility challenges. Lead a growing portfolio of research projects being conducted at the Center in the area of connected vehicles, intelligent transportation systems (ITS), and other big data analytics in support of emerging technologies and their applications to solve transportation/mobility challenges. 

Broadly, the Research Associate will lead or support the following tasks:

  • Data analysis, modeling, statistical analysis of transportation systems and travelers, particularly within New York
  • Working with partners/sponsors in transportation engineering tasks such as administering surveys, recording and collecting data, participating in field tests, and deploying and testing new equipment such as sensors, V2V/I/X communication devices, or similar
  • Lead specific tasks that require creation and calibration of simulation models, development of performance measures, and studying and understanding trends and relationships from big datasets
  • Documenting research activity and disseminating/presenting key findings and research activity to sponsors and partners via presentations, written reports, and other deliverables requires

Qualifications

This position provides an excellent opportunity to work at the cutting edge of transportation planning and engineering research, with exposure to current and anticipated challenges transportation agencies and companies are facing in the New York-area. The successful candidate will have a wide-range of exposure to various transportation tools and emerging technologies, as well as experience developing and implementing new products and solutions into practice. C2SMART’s activity goes beyond the academic setting, and this position will be critical to bringing advances in technology into the real world.

Minimum required qualifications:

  • A master’s degree in civil engineering, transportation, urban studies, or related, from an accredited college with at least 2+ years of experience in transportation
  • First-hand experience conducting data analysis on large-scale transportation or urban datasets with knowledge of both traditional and emerging data storage technologies (e.g. cloud-based, unstructured, etc.)
  • Knowledge of basic transportation concepts and intelligent transportation systems (ITS) technologies
  • Experience with technical writing and documentation of engineering/data science projects

Desired qualifications:

  • A Ph.D. in transportation engineering
  • Experience or knowledge of simulation and modeling software such as SUMO, MATSim, Aimsun, TransCAD, CUBE, VISSIM, or similar
  • A proven ability to write or edit code in Python, C++, or similar
  • Experience experimenting with different desktop/mobile applications in support of research projects
  • Experience with computer vision and/or other video analytics tools
  • Knowledge of New York-area transportation systems and agencies and/or USDOT programs and goals

The Transportation Research Project Manager will serve as the main lead in managing and coordinating various research projects underway and forthcoming at the C2SMART Center. C2SMART has established a new long-term research program to assist state agencies with evaluating, understanding, and undertaking its transportation research needs toward improving and modernizing intelligent transportation systems (ITS). As a result, C2SMART will undertake several projects in coordination with its agencies, vendors, engineering firms and consultants, and other research partners.

 

Primary Responsibilities will include:

  • Overseeing and managing the various projects while fulfilling all sponsor requests and needs for successful execution of these projects
  • Coordinate across all of the faculty, students, and staff leading the principal technical research under these projects, as well as a portfolio of new agency & industry partners that will be engaged on these projects
  • Strong outreach and relationship management skills in addition to the high-level of coordination and organization needed to ensure projects proceed smoothly

The Grants Manager will be responsible for managing the administrative and financial requirements of the C2SMART Center for the seamless execution of its grants and related activities. The Grants Manager will work with project principal investigators to appoint staff/students to positions on their respective grants, plan and consistently track their effort, and enter/track all expenses and charges to various budget accounts. The Grants Manager will also be the primary executor of procurement activities, transactions with the University’s administrative systems, and other incoming and outgoing transactions. This position will work closely with other University administrative units such as Human Resources, Sponsored Programs, Financial Officers, and others, to ensure that Center staff needs and financial requirements are being consistently tracked and supported per sponsor and University requirements. This position reports directly to C2SMART Center leadership but will also work under the direction of NYU Tandon’s Director of Office of Sponsored Programs and is part of the extended NYU Tandon Grant management team.

 

Student Openings

The Center is looking for student research interns to work on faculty-led research projects using emerging technologies in transportation and smart cities. Candidates will be expected to design, implement and improve algorithms for computer vision, deep learning, software development and V2X applications. We expect creativity in integrating new data sources and innovative solutions to solve real-world problems.

Primary Responsibilities will include:

  • Provide reliable algorithm solutions for innovations and technologies for collecting new sources of transportation data including advanced video analytics for transportation management and operation.
  • Evaluate the output of the model and make iterative improvements.
  • Design and optimize a software with graphic user interface for annotating video data and training data labeling.
  • Write documentations for related algorithms and interfaces.
  • Collaborate with the research team and assist in research projects supported by the C2SMART Center
