An opportunity is available for an outstanding PhD scholar in the area of Multi-objective optimisation of infrastructure investment decisions.

The proposed project aims at developing computational frameworks to assist decision makers in prioritising infrastructure investment decisions over multiple periods by considering sustainability objectives. The latter include financial, environmental and social objectives, which will be mathematically formatted by considering the practical constraints. The recent developments in city information modelling, artificial intelligence and optimisation techniques will be investigating to solve the formulated problem.

Applicants must have an unconditional offer of admission for full-time studies in a PhD within the School of Civil Engineering at the University of Sydney, and be willing to undertake research in the field of multi-objective optimization of infrastructure investment decisions.

Applicants must also hold a Bachelor's or a Master’s degree in Engineering, Science or a related field.

The successful applicant will be awarded the Scholarship on the nomination of the relevant research supervisor(s) in the School of Civil Engineering, Faculty of Engineering and IT at the University of Sydney.
