Contract type: Fixed term contract
Duration: 24 months
Your work environment
The Luxembourg Institute of Science and Technology (LIST) is a Research and Technology Organization (RTO) active in the fields of materials, environment and IT. By transforming scientific knowledge into technologies, smart data and tools, LIST empowers citizens in their choices, public authorities in their decisions and businesses in their strategies.
You will be part of the LIST IT for Innovative Services department
The “IT for Innovative Services” (ITIS) department, with its 110 researchers and engineers, focuses on the digital transformation of operations occurring in organizations within traditional environments and digital ecosystems with the aim of improving their performance and innovation capacity. ITIS's common thread is to develop the most efficient use of big data to ensure the most appropriate decision-making process.
In a context where environmental issues are becoming increasingly important, the main mission of the candidate will be to advance the state-of-the-art in this field by exploring new ways to understand and influence mobility and driving habits. This will lead the candidate to work on capturing data from vehicles and other connected devices, like smartphones. Exploring potential datasets collected from, e.g. EOBD devices, accelerometer sensors or network traces, will all be possibilities that the candidate may be able to investigate. New filtering and processing techniques will be evaluated to get a better grasp of people’s driving habits. These models will be validated by implementing decision-making systems, intended for real-world use, in the form of mobile applications. The candidate will naturally have to work on complementary topics, such as the study of correlations between different data series, the creation of pattern recognition models and anomaly detection. The candidate will also be in charge of disseminating and promoting the research activities that will be carried out, whether through publications, patents, prototype development or technical reports.
