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:
This PhD represents an exciting opportunity to develop cutting edge methods of agent-based model building and analysis on a socially relevant topic. You will be expected to translate theoretical mechanisms of economic inequality and segregation into programmable rules of actions for agents within an agent-based model. You will implement these mechanisms and integrate them[…]
We are looking for someone who can develop an area of work using agent-based models to explore circular economy scenarios, and who is interested in developing and delivering training courses on agent-based modelling. You will be contributing to Scottish Government-funded work on the Circular Economy and Large-Scale Modelling, working in interdisciplinary project teams to deliver policy-relevant insights. A systems thinker, you will have a passion for using your agent-based mo[…]
An opportunity is available for a fully funded PhD position to work on a project that aims to analyze how global and local connections and networks impact the spread of an infectious disease. The project will combine a number of methodologies such as network analysis, agent-based modelling, machine learning, and mathematical modelling.
Are you a modeller who wants to contribute to the circular economy for the management of bio-waste at the territorial level? And do you want to innovate how to simulate socio-technical changes? Then apply to this unique position at Inrae, Laboratory of Engineering for Complex Systems (LISC)
The LISC (Inrae) is looking for a PhD candidate in modelling on biowaste management and circular economy. The candidate will be appointed for 3-years to research how to better understand and accelerate […]
The TPM Energy Transition Lab is looking for a PhD candidate in agent-based modelling (ABM) on the energy transition. The candidate will be appointed for 4-years to research how to better understand and accelerate the energy transition through innovative modelling approaches. The PhD candidate studies how the energy behaviour of individuals, households, companies and other stakeholders relates to investment and use of energy technologies, but also perceptions about energy systems affect ong[…]
