Dear All,

Please see below details of two research posts and two phd studentships
at Newcastle University.  The posts have the common thread of climate
adaptation.  The posts and phds will be based with the School of Civil
Engineering & Geosciences and will form part of the Tyndall Centre for
Climate Change Research Cities research programme.  I would be extremely
grateful if you could bring these to the attention of your colleagues
and forward as widely as possible.  For any questions please contact

Many thanks,


+ Tyndall Centre Fellow in Climate Impacts and Adaptation (close: 4th March)
An exciting research fellowship is now available for a suitably
motivated and qualified candidate to develop their own research
interests in the area of climate impacts and adaptation.

+ Urban systems modelling - with a focus on resource modelling and
adaptation (close: 4th March)
Development and demonstration of system-scale models of the
inter-relationships between resource use in cities, climate impacts,
land use, transport and the built environment and to use this
understanding to design cities that are more efficient and adaptable.

+ 3.5 year EPSRC funded studentship - Optimisation of urban
infrastructure form (close: 18th February)
The design and management of urban form and infrastructure has
implications in terms of vulnerability and resource consumption. This
PhD project will identify optimal infrastructure and spatial planning
strategies in cities to enable engineers and policy makers to better
reduce climate risks and achieve wider sustainability objectives.

+ 3.5 year EPSRC funded studentship - Resilient Cities through adapting
urban infrastructure (close: 18th February)
As cities adapt in response to global pressures such as climate change,
it is crucial to understand the implications of adaptations of one
engineering system on others to avoid undermining well meant
initiatives. This phd will analyse interdependencies in urban
infrastructure systems and identify engineering adaptations that
increase the overall resilience of a city to disruptive events.
