Analysis of value chain dynamics in the context of food systems in the Global South. It will include agent-based/system dynamics modelling of value chains at the sub-national or national level in the Global South. The applicant will also translate scenario narratives of stakeholders into model inputs. The research is embedded in the DeSIRE program of the four Dutch technical universities (https://www.4tu.nl/resilience/en/)
Seeking researcher with skills in agent-based modelling of agricultural systems and/or networks for a project on traders as connectors and mediators across scales. The position is part of an ERC project that combines empirical research with modelling to identify mechanisms of persistence and change in social-ecological systems. The research involves collaboration with interdisciplinary team of empirical researchers, modellers and philosophers at Stockholm Resilience Centre (www.seslink.org).
Within the framework of the research project PEKRIS II, which is being carried out in cooperation with the University of Oldenburg Germany, the University of British Columbia Vancouver Canada, the Australian Antarctic Division in Hobart (all three responsible for the empirical part) and TU Dresden Germany (responsible for modeling), the TU Dresden is searching for an ecological modeler at the earliest possible date.
The successful candidate will perform agent-based modeling (ABM) and optimisation of consumer preferences for technologies and strategies to manage solar PV and electricity demand for the next 3 yr. This is an interdisciplinary project funded by the Swiss National Science Foundation (SNSF).
