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?
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).
At the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU), we are currently advertising a PhD fellowship in the area of policy analysis using agent-based modelling. […]
The Ethics/Philosophy of Technology Section of Delft University of Technology is looking for a PhD candidate who will develop an agent-based model to simulate responsibility arrangements in resilience policy for climate adaptation. We are looking for someone with strong conceptual skills, for example through a background in philosophy or artificial intelligence, and experience in agent-based modelling or a willingness to acquire agent-based modelling skills.
The Institute for Geoinformatics, University of Münster, Germany, is offering up to three scholarships for students who want to do a PhD in geoinformatics on a topic of their choice.
