Applications are invited for the post of Infrastructure Network Analyst within the MISTRAL programme, which is the second major EPSRC Programme Grant to be awarded to the UK Infrastructure Transitions Research Consortium (ITRC). The ITRC is a dynamic and innovative research team, with important links with government, industry and the international academic community. The ITRC has a strong sense of identity and is widely regarded for its innovative contributions in systems modelling, risk analysis and infrastructure policy. The research is already being used by utility companies, engineering consultants, the Institution of Civil Engineers and many parts of the UK government, to analyse risks and inform billions of pounds worth of better infrastructure decisions. This post offers an exciting opportunity to contribute to a very high profile project with the potential to have major impact, both in research terms and upon policy and practice in the UK and internationally.
The postholder will be responsible for analysis of the resilience of interdependent infrastructure networks (energy, transport, water, waste and ICT), resilience encompasses: the capacity of a system to resist (prevent and withstand) possible hazards, absorb or cope with the damaging event and recover. The Infrastructure Network Analyst will be responsible for development of new methodology for synthesising, analysing and simulating interdependent infrastructure systems. The postholder will be expected to publish their research work in the peer-reviewed literature and interact closely with ITRC partners in government and industry to disseminate the research.
