Berkeley Lab’s Energy Analysis Environmental Impacts (EAEI) Division has an opening for a Computational Research Scientist to join the Sustainable Transportation Initiative. The Sustainable Transportation Initiative conducts research to identify energy and greenhouse gas savings opportunities from transportation using interdisciplinary methods the combine engineering, economics and technology development. You will co-lead the development of agent-based simulation models of transportation systems of the future that have greater shares of shared, connected, automated and electrified travel modes, with the goal of identifying new opportunities to reduce energy use and greenhouse gas emissions.

What You Will Do:

  • Plan and develop an agent-based transportation system model or large urban and suburban regions.

  • Develop methods to assess the economic and environmental benefits and costs of large-scale transportation electrification in the US.

  • Develop the transportation system model into a software package for broad research use.

  • Co-manage and direct the model development team.

  • Assist the PI in the development of grant proposals in the areas of transportation system science and electrified transportation.

  • Support the authorship of reports and journal articles related to clean transportation.

  • Present research work to scientific and lay audiences.

What is Required:

  • Master’s degree or equivalent in Computational Science, Engineering or a related field and a minimum of 6 years of related work experience and 2+ years of software project development experience

  • Completed reports and/or journal papers on topics related to this position
