We are looking for a Research Assistant with relevant experience in developing optimisation algorithms. The candidate will work on integrating public transport vehicles in last-mile delivery, i.e., can we transport parcels on urban buses/trams/metro trains? How many of them? What are the disadvantages? How much carbon emissions can we save? Can we still guarantee on-time delivery? These are some of the research questions we tackle
