Can I deduct auto expenses for the following moonlighting situation?

I am in the last year of residency in city A. I sign up for a moonlighting opportunity in city B, 100 miles away. I am planning to move to another state after residency to start a new job, so this moonlighting will last shorter than 1 year.

Typically, driving between home and a job is not deductible. However, would this situation count as temporary employment so that I would be eligible for the standard mileage deduction?
