About the Project

A novel integrated framework and a tool to optimise climate resilience and whole-life carbon emission assessments for critical infrastructure (e.g. transport, energy) will be developed. The framework will embrace resilience and tCO2e assessments and will result in global metrics to facilitate sustainable climate adaptation measures. The tool will include novel restoration, fragility and functionality loss models and relevant uncertainties, to extract optimised adaptation solutions for different hazards and climate projections. The above will be applied in selected case studies within the UK. 

Your background should be in civil, environmental and/or electrical engineering. Skills in the life-cycle assessment, climate change models, infrastructure network modelling and GIS will be an advantage. You should be a highly motivated individual and possess a strong sense of curiosity. The ability to study independently, think critically and collaborate with others is essential.
