We are seeking a Global Infrastructure Risk and Supply Chains Analyst to conduct independent research and make an important contribution to the Oxford Martin Programme on Systemic Resilience (SysRes).
The successful candidate will advance practical solutions to manage shocks with the potential for major and prolonged economic disruption, severe human or economic impacts, and contagion. This role within the programme will focus upon the resilience of global trade, examining the geolocation of supply chains and the infrastructure that enables trade in goods and services: ports, roads, railways, airports, digital communications, electricity. It will also quantify trade flows within these supply chains, in the first instance focussing upon food trade and potential food commodity shocks. You will be focussed upon developing effective responses to enhance the resilience of global systems, so the post-holder will explore a variety of different system interventions and will evaluate their effectiveness using newly developed system models. This will be based on a combination of data analysis and simulation modelling. You will be expected to publish the model in the peer-reviewed literature and interact closely with a high-profile group of project partners in disseminating the research.
You must hold, or be close to completion of, a PhD/DPhil or equivalent research experience in a field involving geospatial analysis, network analysis, economic modelling and/or risk analysis. You will also have experience of high-level programming (e.g. Python) for systems analysis. A track record of generating innovative modelling solutions to real world problems is essential. You will have experience of the integration of heterogeneous models and datasets in systems analysis. The capability to model global infrastructure, trade and supply chains is a must.
Applications are particularly welcome and encouraged from women, black, and minority ethnic candidates, who are under-represented in posts in SoGE. SoGE and the ECI are committed to equality and value diversity.
This is a full-time post for 18 months.
Applications for this vacancy are to be made online. You will be required to upload a CV and supporting statement as part of your online application.
The closing date for applications is 12.00 noon on Tuesday 21 February 2023, and interviews will be held on a date to be confirmed.
