100 Resilience Fellows

Goal

The 4TU.DeSIRE program and the 4TU.RE Center aim to establish and foster an international network of top-level academic scholars, engineers, practitioners and decision-makers who serve as ambassadors of the RE paradigm. This network of Resilience Fellows:

  • Will influence the agenda nationally; 
  • Will connect to international networks in research and practice devoted to resilience of coupled systems; 
  • Will integrate the latest academic advancements in real applications for a lasting societal impact; 
  • Will help disseminate knowledge and RE ‘best practices’; 
  • Will be an incubator for partnerships and new projects worldwide.

Therefore, on June 6th 2019 the 4TU RE community officially opened the call for applications for Resilience Fellows.

Types of fellowships

The 4TU.Resilience Fellowship program is open for nominations in three categories.

Young Resilience Fellows Program
Purpose: 4TU.DeSIRE Program and 4TU.RE Center offer talented researchers and practitioners an opportunity to (i) stay for a research visit in one of the 4TU, or (ii) attend a summer school/courses with the Resilience Academy.

Eligibility: young scholars (starting from 3rd year of PhD to 7 years after PhD) as well as early career practitioners (< 10 years experience) with a keen interest in understanding resilience of coupled social-technical-environmental systems.

Resilience Research Fellows
Purpose: 4TU.DeSIRE Program and 4TU.RE Center offer mid-career professionals a possibility to exchange experiences and strengthen the bridges between academia and practice. You will have a possibility to be based at the 4TU Centre for Resilience Engineering part-time (e.g. one day a week) or for a certain period (upon agreement) and work together on your particular case, possibly engaging several 4TU researchers and students to think along. As a practicing engineer or policy-maker you could offer topics for student projects and possibly co-advise MSc students on a topic relevant for your organization.

The Research Fellowship is also open for mid-career researchers who are interested to spend a sabbatical leave with one of the groups involved in the 4TU.RE Center. A development of joint research proposals and professional or academic publications is welcome.

Eligibility: mid-career scholars (7-20 years after PhD), as well as practitioners (10-25 years of experience).

Resilience Engineering Ambassador
Purpose: 4TU.DeSIRE Program and 4TU.RE Center aims to support a network of high-level Executives and internationally renowned RE leaders, Engineers and Policy-makers who actively steer resilience thinking and management within and outside their organizations. 4TU.RE Ambassadors have the option to join Executive trainings on resilience and become part of the Ambassador Network.

Eligibility: People who can shape and influence policy and practice. High level Executives who have the aim to make i) their organization, and or ii) the services or products they develop and deliver, and or iii) society more resilient.

What do we offer?

  • Affiliation to the 4TU Centre for Resilience Engineering with a Resilience Fellow certificate and visibility on our 4TU-RE website;
  • Network of peers from different fields (energy, water, transport, ICT, agri-food, urban) across different engineering, natural and social sciences interested in RE and opportunities to meet and discuss and set up collaborations;
  • One contact point and direct access to 40+ different research groups working on RE in different application areas across 4TU;
  • Knowledge exchange with 4TU.RE staff and immediate access to the most recent scientific advancements on Resilience Engineering;
  • Possibilities to connect directly to research and education on RE, for example by:
    • Setting up a Solution Team around your project;
    • Organizing a workshop around your case on the annual conference;
    • Providing your case to a group of students as a project;
    • Collaborating on an article for an academic or professional journal;
    • Designing and writing a project proposal with staff from the 4TUs.

Current Resilience Fellows

Resilience Engineering Ambassadors

In June 2019 we were delighted to welcome our first two Resilience Fellows:
Dr Juliet Mian and Prof.Dr. Jim Hall.

Dr Juliet Mian is a practicing civil engineer with ample experience across different infrastructure systems in energy, water and transport. She is the Associate Director in Arup’s Infrastructure Advisory group and leads Arup’s City Resilience Skill Network. Currently Dr. Mian serves as the Technical Director of The Resilience Shift – a global initiative funded by Lloyd's Register Foundation and Arup, with a focus on resilience of critical infrastructure sectors. She will tell as more about The Resilience Shift and Arup’s activities during her keynote tonight. The 4TU.RE Center and the DeSIRE Research program announce Dr. Mian as the Resilience Engineering Ambassador in honor of her a strong passion in the application of new research and innovation to practical challenges.

Jim Hall is Professor of Climate and Environmental Risk at the University of Oxford and a top visionary scientist. Besides being a highly productive academic, Prof Hall leads the UK Infrastructure Transitions Research Consortium, is a member of the UK independent Committee on Climate Change Adaptation and is an elected Fellow of the Royal Academy of Engineering. His work for the UK government , OECD and IPCC delivered results that are transforming the practice of flood risk assessments, uncertainty estimates and infrastructure simulation models . The 4TU.RE Center and the DeSIRE Research program announce Prof.Hall as the Resilience Engineering Ambassador in recognition of his renowned scientific contribution and international leadership in the field of management of climate-related risks and resilient infrastructure systems.
