We are looking for diverse participants for a paid, hands-on summer research experience to learn more about the real-world impacts of disinformation. Students will choose topics that align with faculty expertise and pursue research projects that advance their skills in valuable STEM areas including data science, data analytics, information retrieval, applied machine learning, web archiving, and social computing.
We are looking for a postdoctoral researcher to lead a participatory modelling study that analyses the vulnerability of Spanish rural communities to the compounded effects of climate change, depopulation and agricultural trade, and explores the feasibility and effectiveness of vulnerability mitigation policies.
Deadline: 31th of January
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]
We are seeking to appoint a Postdoctoral Research Assistant (PDRA) for a continuing interdisciplinary project to build an agent-based model (ABM) to represent the extraction of fish by fishing vessels in open ocean fisheries and the associated effects on ocean ecological systems. The goal of this effort will be to identify pragmatic fisheries management strategies tailored both to the complexity of the ocean ecosystem, and the limitations of social, economic and regulatory systems. This pos[…]
To make a leading contribution to the research and data service activities of the UKRI-ESRC-funded Urban Big Data Centre (UBDC). Specifically, working with Professor Alison Heppenstall, the job requires a background in computational modelling, particularly individual-based modelling approaches (agent-based modelling and microsimulation) within the area of urban analytics and social simulation. You will develop individual-level models, together with the underpinning methods, th[…]
You will contribute to the SOCITS project: A socially situated systems approach to youth mental health, working with principal investigator, Dr Mark McCann, and an interdisciplinary team from the University of Glasgow, MRC/CSO Social and Public Health Sciences Unit, College of Social Sciences, School of Psychology and Neuroscience, and the Mental Health Foundation.
The post holder will build Agent Based Models to simulate the range of interactions that take place within secondary schools,[…]
The aim of the proposed Ph. D. project is to develop and evaluate alternative scenarios for spatially dispersed Net Zero lifestyles that entail viable rural communities and economies; with the viability being demonstrated through spatial agent-based social simulation. The following research questions could be investigated in pursuit of this aim, though the student will be encouraged to develop these questions themself:
The Chair in Human Geography at the Department of Geography offers a PhD student position to support the research activities in the context of the European Research Council (ERC) project STORIES (ID: 101040939), led by Dr. Liang Emlyn Yang. This is a 5-year research project that will investigate the dynamic interactions of floods impacts and social resilience in the Mekong River basin. Based on the project, a small team will be established to do pioneering and impactful science on climate r[…]

The research of the post-doc will be focusing at the modeling of human behaviour in selected cases of local social innovation (projects at neighborhood level). The HUMAT framework, developed in an earlier project (SMARTEES, see https://local-social-innovation.eu) will be used as architecture for developing a simulated population for selected cases. Empirical data will have to be collected and implemented to construct a valid and representative population. Simulation runs will produce differ[…]
