The selected candidate will be appointed a part-time position (0,5 fte) as a Forsker/Researcher in the NORCE Kristiansand office. The working language is English, although knowledge of or willingness to learn Norwegian will be an additional advantage.
We are looking for a researcher to complement our Modelling and Simulation team. Initially, the successful candidate will be responsible for programming agent-based models of urban logistic systems in a H2020 grant that brings together industry leaders in logistics services, novel solution providers for shared, connected, and automated operations and research experts to co- develop novel last mile delivery solutions combining green automated vehicles and shared space utilization models. ABM activities will focus on representing supply chains, and will be a collaborative effort between NORCE who is primarily responsible for providing representations of the demand side (customer adaptive behaviours related to novel logistic services) and another leading European research institution who is primarily responsible for providing representations of the supply side (institutional actors). The goal is to improve the knowledge about user needs, habits, and preferences in terms of deliveries and contribute to the development of digital twins of real-world urban areas. Ultimately, ABM will be used to assist city stakeholders in making greener decisions.
