As this vacancy has limited funding the maximum salary that can be offered is Grade 7, salary £36,024
Fixed Term contract up to March 2025
The Department of Civil Engineering at the University of Birmingham is seeking to appoint a research fellow to work on the recently funded UKRI research grant VPP-WARD (https://www.vppward.com/).
The successful candidate will be responsible to lead the research works that looks into developing numerical models to simulate the impact of climate anomalies and extreme scenarios on buried power grids and their supporting ground. This will be done through developing multi-phase modelling of ground and buried utilities using finite element analysis as well as developing physics-informed machine learning predictive models. Through this we intend to capture impact of climate change events such as floods and draught, and their consequence such as large deformation ground movements, on buried utilities and distributed energy resources. The predictive models will be used to estimate model grid resilience and simulate future extreme environmental scenarios. The project also aims to use data from potential experimental set ups in the National Buried Infrastructure Facility (NBIF), where available.
