A new two-year Post-doc position at Singapore University of Technology and
Design (Pillar of Engineering Systems and Design) has been recently
advertised. The position is within the project *Flexibility in design of
urban water supply systems*, which will be conducted in collaboration with
Prof. Richard de Neufville (MIT).

More details regarding the position are given below.

Kind regards,

Stefano Galelli

Assistant Professor

Pillar of Engineering Systems and Design

Singapore University of Technology and Design

E-mail: stefano_galelli at sutd.edu.sg

Web: http://people.sutd.edu.sg/~stefano_galelli/


The position is offered within the SUTD-MIT International Design Centre
(IDC), http://idc.sutd.edu.sg/ a scholarly hub for technologically
intensive design science and research based both in Singapore at SUTD, and
in Cambridge, USA, at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) (
http://idc.sutd.edu.sg). The successful applicant will work in Singapore
with Asst. Prof. Stefano Galelli (SUTD), in collaboration with visiting
Prof. Richard de Neufville (MIT).

The “Flexibility in design of urban water supply systems” project will
study the effect of long-term uncertainties in the design of urban water
supply systems. The goal is to develop design principles widely applicable
to a broad range of urban infrastructures. The overall project covers three
research areas:

- modeling of various sources of long-term uncertainty (e.g.,
demography, technological opportunities or climate change);
- development of hydro-economic models to allow the simulation of water
supply systems under different scenarios; and
- optimization-based design and multi-scale problems.

It will particularly emphasize the creation of flexible design solutions
that can easily adapt to the different eventualities affecting urban water
supply systems. We expect to consider different case studies during the
project execution, with a major focus on Asian and South-East Asian

The successful candidate must have a Ph.D. in engineering, science or
applied mathematics, with a strong academic background in water resources
planning and management. In-depth knowledge of hydro-economic modeling,
optimization and applied systems analysis is an asset. Further requirements
include excellent skills in programming and ability in handling large
hydro-meteorological and climatological datasets. Finally, the successful
candidate must be comfortable with both team and independent work; possess
a proven record of scientific excellence, personal initiative; and advanced
proficiency in communicating scientific findings in peer-reviewed journals
and at professional meetings. Excellent command of English is essential.

The position is available from summer/autumn 2015. Attractive working
conditions include competitive compensation and funded short-term visits to
MIT. The contract can be for 1 year, with an option to renew for a second
year. Interested candidates should send a letter, CV, and a publication
list to stefano_galelli at sutd.edu.sg or ardent at mit.edu. The PIs will
evaluate applications until they find a suitable candidate.
