  3. The successful candidate will have strong coordination skills to work directly with researchers (including professors, postdoctoral fellows, graduate students, and undergraduate students), government partners, private operators, and others in successfully leading this initiative.
  4. Responsibilities will include defining and delivering on timelines (including searching out transportation data from various sources
