|CSIR Built Environment (BE) unit has a vacant position for an Intern in the Transport Systems and Operations competence area. There are a number of research areas within this competence area where significant growth is being experienced. These include the weighbridge (overload control) software application; the Road Transport Management System (RTMS) accreditation programme; and the Smart Truck/Performance-Based Standards research project. The number of heavy vehicles participating in the RTMS has more or less doubled in the last 12 months to around 1 600. There are currently 45 vehicles participating in the Smart Truck demonstration project, and this is likely to double in the next year or two. One of the ultimate goals of the project is to generate new knowledge and human capital development to support the transport infrastructure sector in South Africa. The project team recognises the shortages of skills and human capacity in the transport infrastructure sector, and plans to use this project to effectively train young researchers, technologists and artisans.
The current vacancy seeks a young engineer who is registered minimally for an Honours degree at an accredited South African university. The position is based in Pretoria
