The aim is to develop new indicators of the vitality of honeybee colonies which inform about how much they are affected by stressors. The project will use data from a new electronic counter of the flight activity of a colony with data from drone-based surveys of flowering plants in the surrounding landscape to inform the agent-based honeybee model BEEHAVE (http://beehave-model.net/). BEEHAVE will then be used to develop stress tests for identifying new indicators.
Adaptive resilient economy: responding to shocks under boundedly-rational economic expectations
We focus on modeling economy as an adaptive complex system. Heterogeneous economic agents with bounded rationality and imperfect information make decisions and interact with each other giving rise to macroeconomic phenomena. Economies globally become more interconnected and prone to shocks (incl. climate-induced natural hazards). How do networked economies recover and evolve in face of adversities?

A postdoctoral research associate is sought in the School for Environment and Sustainability (SEAS) at the University of Michigan. The successful candidate will assist with 1) developing and implementing agent-based simulations of interactions between humans and wildlife; 2) analyzing and visualizing simulation outputs to share with decision makers; and 3) writing scientific, peer-reviewed publications.
Opportunity for a postdoctoral researcher to join an interdisciplinary team at University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign that is focused on a federally funded project to develop an agent-based model to simulate school meal environments in an effort to identify appropriate strategies to reduce food waste and improve fruit and vegetable consumption in the National School Lunch Program.
