Job no: 516853
Work type: Research Faculty
Senior management: Vice President for Research
Department: Virginia Tech Transportation Instit
Location: Blacksburg Area
Categories: Engineering, Research / Scientific, Transportation

Job Description

Make a difference while building your career in a field that affects the safety, health, and quality of lives of almost everyone on a daily basis. Transportation is undergoing an incredible transformation that is inspiring researchers to approach problems using new technologies and non-traditional methods. At the Virginia Tech Transportation Institute (VTTI), a world-leading research enterprise, we are working with government agencies, transportation and safety organizations, vehicle manufacturers and their suppliers, and others to overcome these challenges and improve transportation safety and performance on the world’s roads. (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nj4VWviw5JA).
The Division of Freight, Transit, and Heavy Vehicle Safety (DHVY), a research-focused group within VTTI, seeks qualified and ambitious engineering/human factors/traffic safety professionals with a strong background and proven research record in human factors/engineering/psychology/safety/education/public health/vehicle technology. The ideal candidate is an experienced researcher with a desire to eventually take a leadership role in a growing and diverse research division. The candidate must be capable of working collaboratively in multidisciplinary teams (as a Research Associate) or leading those teams (as a Senior Research Associate) to complete transportation research projects within constraints of time and budget. DHVY research projects include lab and simulator studies, test track experiments using a single vehicle, largescale naturalistic driving studies that involve collecting data from hundreds of vehicles on public roadways, and large-scale data analysis efforts. DHVY research faculty also engage in outreach activities to support a research-to-practice model. The candidate must be motivated to work with heavy vehicles, including commercial trucks, transit buses, and motorcoaches. The candidate must also be interested in safety technology, including automation. (https://www.vtti.vt.edu/research/ctbs/index.php)



Research Specialist-VTTI

Job no: 516854
Work type: Staff
Senior management: Vice President for Research
Department: Virginia Tech Transportation Instit
Location: Blacksburg Area
Categories: Research / Scientific, Transportation

Job Description





Dedicated to solving the most challenging problems for truck and bus developers, fleets, and drivers/operators. DHVY is seeking hard working, innovative, flexible and qualified individuals with an interest to learn and deliver transportation research. Research projects range from small test-track experiments using a single next-generation heavy vehicle to large naturalistic studies involving hundreds of vehicles on live roadways. The research often features data acquisition systems to unobtrusively collect various sensor elements with the aim of characterizing the roadway, vehicle, and driver performance. Other research focuses on simulator testing or measuring vehicle performance in simulated modeling environments. These measures and robust data sets are analyzed to address specific research questions that tend to focus on the characterization of existing transportation problems (e.g. crash causation) and/or the performance/development of advanced or automated vehicle systems (e.g. crash avoidance technology). This role requires demonstrated ability to consistently exercise discretion and judgment as well as strong supervisory, problem solving, communication, organization, and documentation skills.
Duties and responsibilities will include:
Conducting various research tasks, working on multiple projects| Reduce and check data| Supporting writing technical reports| Participant recruitment| Track budgets| Travel (will vary based on project, but may occur up to 50 percent of time for extended periods)| Most office hours are daytime Monday through Friday, but must be available and willing to work evenings and weekends as needed to meet project deadlines.

Directions given and received:
Receive instructions on project objectives, feedback on proposed research plans, and project logistics from principal investigators and project managers. May supervise or coordinate the work of graduate research assistants, technicians, and others who assist in specific assignments.
