Position: PhD studentships in Infrastructure Systems
Institution: University College London
Department: Department of Civil, Environmental and Geomatic Engineering
Location: London, United Kingdom
Duties: three broad areas of research: engineered and engineering systems resilience; sustainable innovation toward zero harm; and anticipatory infrastructure services leveraging next generation technologies for real-time, autonomous decision making. These research topics provide opportunities to examine current and future infrastructures from a trans-disciplinary and complex systems perspective. You will gain experience of using mixed methods leveraging both quantitative and qualitative data and you will extend your modelling skills to include novel mechanisms for knowledge identification and autonomy. Multiple social, environmental and economic impacts are possible from these research topics, such as reducing poverty due to lack of infrastructure services (e.g. mobility, heating); improving air quality; and maintaining service provision despite weather extremes
Requirements: 1st class or upper 2nd class bachelors or a masters degree in engineering, physics, maths or computer science
   
Text: PhD studentships in Infrastructure Systems , - Ref:1823372 Click here to go back to search results UCL Department / Division Department of Civil, Environmental and Geomatic Engineering Location of position London Duration of Studentship 4 Years Vacancy Information Three doctoral studentships, (one funded, two self-funded),are now open for applicants interested in the field of infrastructure systems. For the funded studentship, Tuition Fees will be paid plus an annual tax-free stipend of £19,000 (year 1), rising to £20,500 (year 4). These opportunities reflect uncertainties due to (i) the burgeoning growth of inter-dependent energy, transport, water, waste and telecoms systems; (ii) the rising abundance of low-carbon distributed infrastructure; and (iii) the digitisation of everything infrastructure related. There are three broad areas of research: engineered and engineering systems resilience; sustainable innovation toward zero harm; and anticipatory infrastructure services leveraging next generation technologies for real-time, autonomous decision making. These research topics provide opportunities to examine current and future infrastructures from a trans-disciplinary and complex systems perspective. You will gain experience of using mixed methods leveraging both quantitative and qualitative data and you will extend your modelling skills to include novel mechanisms for knowledge identification and autonomy. Multiple social, environmental and economic impacts are possible from these research topics, such as reducing poverty due to lack of infrastructure services (e.g. mobility, heating); improving air quality; and maintaining service provision despite weather extremes. Your research will be conducted in the Infrastructure Systems Institute which provides a supporting environment for skills development and access to a number of on-going and prospective research projects and related industrial and academic partners. Eligibility Applicants must hold a 1st class or upper 2nd class bachelors or a masters degree in engineering, physics, maths or computer science. Applicants should send a covering letter and CV to Professor Liz Varga ( l.varga@ucl.ac.uk ). The successful applicant will then have to apply online to UCL by submitting the PhD application form via https://www.ucl.ac.uk/prospective-students/graduate/apply .
