Postdoc project description
The project aims to develop a data-driven monitoring and decision-making platform,
based on IoT and micro-services technologies, to improve transport resilience via
(real-time) big data analytics and complex network mining solutions.

The project provides a unique opportunity to work with a large variety of collected
real-world large-scale datasets for the city of Lyon, France from our partners,

  • mobile phone (passive) data,
  • multi-modal transport network of the city of Lyon,
  • GPS floating car data,
  • survey data,
  • vehicle count data,
  • smart-card data, etc.
  • Real-time data will be available as well, thanks to a collaboration with a major European provider
    of real-time travel information services.

The postdoc will be involved in activities related to the implementation of the prototype of the PROMENADE platform, which relies on IoT lambda/kappa architectures for automated deployment, scaling, and management of smart mobility resilience-related micro-services, based on the preliminary work from the team.

She/He will also be involved in the development of services for mobility data collection, analysis and decision making.

Please do not hesitate to contact me or Pr. Nour-Eddin EL FAOUZI (nour-eddin.elfaouzi@ifsttar.fr), in CC, for more information, and share CVs of any contact potentially interested to our proposal.

We are ready to schedule a Skype interview to discuss more about the available position.

The postdoctoral position is expected to start in the period July-December 2019 and
could have a duration between 12 and 18 months.
