PhD student: Statistical Modelling of Wake Turbulence Encounters 100 % – ZHAW

Webseite Zürcher Hochschule für Angewandte Wissenschaften

Develop efficient data-driven techniques to quantify the probabilities of wake turbulence encounters based on aircraft trajectories in cooperation with ONERA.

Within your PhD project you develop efficient data-driven techniques to quantify the probabilities of wake turbulence encounters based on aircraft trajectories in cooperation with ONERA.

  • Data crunching, filtering, and clustering of air traffic trajectory data
  • Applied research in the field of probabilistic wake turbulence modelling and wake turbulence encounter modelling
  • Development of theoretically founded and practically tested methods to quantify the risk of wake turbulence encounters between two aircraft
  • Application of the developed methods to real world trajectories
  • MSc in Mathematics, Data Science, Engineering or another related field
  • Solid background in statistics and data analysis
  • Good programming skills (Python)
  • Very good English language skills
  • Knowledge in aviation is an advantage but not mandatory

The position is limited to 3 years. The doctoral degree will be conferred by ISAE Supaero (Toulouse, France). The main work location is in Winterthur, Switzerland.
