Travel Model Program Manager Posting

*The Institute for Transportation Research and Education at North Carolina
State University is hiring a Program Manager for our Travel Behavior
Modeling Group. *

The Program Manager is responsible for day to day leadership and management
related to the development and application of the Triangle Regional Model,
an advanced hybrid trip-based model. The work will require the formulation
of, and oversight for developing, updating and applying travel demand
models, including developing input data, model application methods,
calibration and validation, model reporting, analyzing and visualizing
outputs. The ability to integrate model results into project or policy
analyses in a team environment will also be required.

The Travel Behavior Modeling Group conducts travel behavior related
research and manages the Triangle Regional Model (TRM); the travel demand
model for the Research Triangle region of North Carolina. The Triangle
region is one of the fastest growing regions in the country, and
the TRM model has been used to analyze policies and investment strategies
in Metropolitan Transportation Plans to address challenges that come with
growth. The model has been used to evaluate land use scenarios, toll
facilities, high occupancy toll lanes, and various transit investment
options, such as Light Rail, commuter rail, and bus rapid transit. The
region has invested in extensive data collection efforts to support
developing the model including a recurring household travel survey.
