Two postdoctoral positions are available with the Vanderbilt Initiative for Smart cities Operation and Research (VISOR) at the Institute for Software integrated systems, in the area of smart and connected communities
|Institute for Software Integrated Systems|
The Vanderbilt initiative for smart cities operation and research (VISOR) at the Institute for Software integrated systems conducts research in the area of smart and connected communities (SCC). SCC as a research neighborhood lies at the intersection of machine learning, cyber-physical systems, civil infrastructure, data sciences, and social sciences. This research area is being enabled by the rapid and transformational changes driven by innovations in smart sensors, such as cameras and air quality monitors, which are now embedded in almost every physical device and system we use, from watches and smart phones to automobiles, homes, roads, and workplaces. Coupled with emerging modes of networking, new algorithms for data analytics, and new paradigms for distributed computing (e.g., fog computing), these sensors create an “internet of things” (IoT) that provide endless opportunities for innovation and improving the quality of life through improved transportation and efficient and sustainable use of energy and other resources. The effect of these innovations can be seen in a number of diverse domains including, transportation, emergency response, and energy distribution and use, to name a few. VISOR is home to a number of ongoing projects in collaboration with the city of Nashville.
We are seeking two motivated post-doctoral researchers with a solid technical background and experience in areas smart and connected communities with emphasis on one or more of the following (a) Real-time learning and decision making, (b) Secure and trustworthy data-driven decision support systems, and (c) Equitable and fair incentivization. Experience in software design and development, and the ability to link theoretical results to systems/experimental work within the domain of transportation and energy networks are highly valued.
Applications should include a cover letter specifying the candidate’s primary research interests, complete curriculum vitae, two primary publications, and the e-mail addresses of three references. The application can be sent by email to Applications Visor.
