MAI UNISA 2018

The Malaysia Automotive Institute (MAI) and the University of South Australia (UniSA) have established the Automotive Innovation Centre (AIC) since 29 Aug 2017.

The AIC aims to undertake PhD research studies that provide advanced and novel solutions for the Malaysian automotive industry. The AIC, in collaboration with the Institute of Choice, Sydney, is seeking innovative and highly motivated candidates to conduct research on discrete choice methods for understanding and predicting the adoption and diffusion of new transport technologies and services.

Recent advances, such as the development of autonomous vehicles (AVs), the invention of unmanned aerial vehicles, the growth of shared mobility services, and the commercialization of alternative fuel vehicle technologies, promise to revolutionize how humans travel. The implications are profound: some have predicted the end of car dependent societies, others have portended greater suburbanization than has ever been observed before. The AIC PhD research will seek to understand how different agents engage with these new systems and services, and what will be the consequent economic, social and environmental impacts of their decisions.

This will be a 3- to 4-year doctoral program conforming to the general requirements of the University of South Australia and further conditions imposed by the Institute for Choice. Candidates should be aware that formal graduate-level foundational and specialist coursework will be required. Candidates with strong mathematical skills, some experience in computer programming, and an interest in econometric methods are especially encouraged to apply. The Institute has a strong research environment and is deeply committed to world-class research performance. It is expected that the individual selected for this program will be highly competitive in the academic as well as the automotive industry job market after completing this program.
