The Science and Math Cluster at the Singapore University of Technology and Design (SUTD) seeks a Postdoctoral Research Fellow on city modelling/road network planning project at SUTD. Efficient methods and tools for city modelling, road network planning and traffic management are very important in the ever more urbanized world. In this research project, we aim to create a mathematical model for predicting the growth of city, including the fractional dimensions of a city. The model will allow one to determine the relationship between the spatial dynamics of a city and characteristics of the city performance parameter. We are also interested in the development of a data-driven modelling approach for accurate simulation of road traffic in real-life transportation networks, and for congested traffic to be more susceptible to transit out of congestion via a game-theoretic approach.

The focus of this postdoc position will be fairly broad, including but not limited to mathematical and computational approaches to understanding social dynamics. Knowledge in applications of fractional calculus and game theory will be an added advantage. The ideal candidate has a Ph.D. in Math/CS/Physics/Engineering on a topic in computational science, applied probability, statistics, machine learning, game theory or a related area.

Interested candidate can email Asst/P Cheong Kang Hao ( or Prof Ricky Ang ( for more information.
