CENTRE FOR TRANSPORT STUDIES 
IMPERIAL COLLEGE LONDON  

PhD Studentship in real-time congestion-aware fleet optimisation     

Applications are invited for a PhD studentship working in the area of fleet optimisation. This studentship is a 
collaborative venture between the Centre for Transport Studies and Trakm8 Holdings Plc, under the UK 
Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council's CASE award scheme, administered by the Location and 
Timing Knowlege Transfer Network.      

The aim of the project is to develop a near-real-time optimisation framework for calculating the most efficient 
deployment of a fleet of delivery vehicles taking into account current and predicted traffic conditions. The 
solution is to be developed for a fleet of delivery vehicles performing multi-drop and pick up operations at 
scheduled times from a number of locations, where both the pick-up/drop-off schedule and the road 
conditions continuously evolve. The project is expected to make use of publicly available road traffic data 
sources from the Highways Agency and the local authorities. It is expected that the student will work closely 
with Trakm8 to develop a sound understanding of the real-world problem requirement and constraints, 
including spending periods working at the offices of Trakm8.      

Funding is available for UK and EU fee status applicants. For UK applicants, the studentship offers a stipend 
of approximately £15k per annum and covers fees at the UK/EU student rate. EU applicants are eligible for 
funding if they have spent a minimum of three years continuously studying or working in the UK immediately 
before taking up the award. Other EU and overseas candidates are not eligible.     

The Centre for Transport Studies comprises eight academic staff and a vibrant community of over 60 doctoral 
students and post doctoral researchers undertaking research across a broad range of topics including 
transport demand modelling, transport policy and regulation, transport operations, transport and the 
environment, transport safety, intelligent transport systems, railway operations and management, air 
transport operations and control, and maritime logistics. Further information can be found on the Centre's 
website at www.imperial.ac.uk/cts.     

Applicants for the studentship should have or expect to obtain a first or upper second class honours degree 
or equivalent, in a relevant aspect of mathematics, statistics, engineering, computing, economics other 
strongly quantitative discipline. A Master's degree in a relevant subject would be advantageous but is not 
essential.    

Applicants should send an up to date curriculum vitae, full contact details (including email addresses) of 2 
referees (at least one of whom must be an academic) and a one page personal statement, to:    

 Professor John Polak
