Description: Applications are invited to pursue PhD research in close colloboration with a major research programme on the Long Term Dynamics of Interdependent Infrastructure Systems being undertaken by the UK Infrastructure Transitions research Consortium (IRTC) funded by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC). The aim of the ITRC is to develop and demonstrate a new generation of system simulation models and tools to inform analysis, planning and design of national infrastructure. The programme has high level backing from a range of stakeholders in government and industry. The focus of the PhD Studentship is to use new economic concepts derived from evolutionary economics to understand more about the inter-relationships between different levels of infrastructure provision and the longer term development of local economies. In particular, the research will focus on how the long-run evolution of infrastructure then shapes and reshapes the geography of economic development. The work will be supervised by Professor Peter Tyler (Department of Land Economy, University of Cambridge) and Professor Ron Martin (Department of Geography, University of Cambridge).
