CoMSES Net is dedicated to fostering open and reproducible scientific computation through cyberinfrastructure and community development. We develop and curate resources for model-based science with FAQs and forums for discussions, job postings, and events. We also develop and maintain the CoMSES Computational Model Library, a digital repository for code that supports discovery and good practices for software citation, reproducibility and reuse.
This postdoc will help design, develop and apply an Agent Based Model simulating the effects of stressors on least bells vireos (an endangered bird species found in southern California). A project overview can be found here (https://serdp-estcp.org/projects/details/89fdcf5b-0c44-41f9-af97-fd1d45908863/rc22-3216-project-overview) and this video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c0DQPcSk-Qg) provides a 1/2 hour project summary. Questions can be directed to Dr. Pat Zollner using [email protected]
To develop simulation models to assess the impact of aporophobia (rejection of the poor) on countries' welfare states and social variables such as poverty and inequality. The selected candidate should provide technical support to the project on modelling and simulation based on agents, design experiments, analyse simulation results and contribute to research articles.
In the POLISES group (www.polises.de) at the Helmholtz Centre for Environmental Research UFZ Leipzig, Germany a three years PhD Position on "Model-based exploration of leverage points to foster sustainable nitrogen management in German agriculture” is offered from December 1, 2022 on with a methodological focus on social-ecological modelling and agent-based modelling. The aim of the PhD project is to investigate the effects of policy measures for sustainable nitrogen management of farmers[...]
