Demand Modelling Specialist
This role will support our ongoing programmes of work in relation to new mobility services, connected (and autonomous) vehicles, and advanced modelling techniques. Reporting to the Modelling Team Leader, you will be responsible for leading the development of innovative new multi-modal modelling tools and platforms to enable the potential demand for and impact of future mobility services to be assessed and appraised. This is likely to include the use of conventional modelling packages as well as innovative new platforms that will be developed within the team. Key focus areas of this role will be in the development of demand models to assess the likely uptake of mobility services as well as developing models to enable the multi-modal impacts of such new services to be understood. Due to a significant project win we are particularly seeking candidates with experience of TfL’s strategic modelling suite, LTS, LoHAM and Railplan.
Your input will define the technical scope of the project work that we will be undertaking with partners and stakeholders. You will also provide technical direction, leadership and assurance throughout the project delivery phase, providing clear support and direction to the team undertaking the technical work and ongoing engagement and liaison with project partners and stakeholders. You will often be developing projects from first principles for ‘First of a Kind’ feasibility studies or demonstrators. This often requires working through ambiguity to identify a clear project scope – you will need to be comfortable with this exciting, challenging and essential part of this role.
The role is likely to cover the full range of activities that the CPC is engaged with, including connected and autonomous systems, new mobility services and data sharing/analytics.
A key facet of this role will be taking learning and experience gained from developing and operating current models and applying that for unconventional and innovative uses. Having an eye for innovation and seeing how modelling could be done in different ways is a key requirement for this role. You will also be expected to contribute to the dissemination of our project results via attendance at major UK and international conferences and seminars.
