A PhD position is available in Dr. Pat Zollner’s lab in the Department of Forestry and Natural Resources at Purdue University. The PhD student will work collaboratively with a post doc, project Co-PIs, and stakeholders to develop an Agent Based Model to understand how multiple stressors and interactions between those stressors as well as management scenarios impact populations of Least Bell’s Vireo in Southern California.
Climate action demands drastic behavioural and social changes for a variety of actors. Success of technological interventions climate change mitigation and adaptation policies critically depends on our understanding of drivers of citizens’ behavior, including psychological biases, individual preferences, and social influence. We welcome an Assistant Professor with a passion to integrate and advance behavioural insights for effective climate policy design, communication and compliance concer[…]
In the group of National and International Nature Conservation in the Department of Agriculture, Ecotrophology and Landscape Development, we offer a PhD position for three years on “Resilient Landscapes”. You will focus on model-based assessment of resilience in (agricultural) landscapes.
ABM Postdoc researcher at the University of Namur (Belgium)
MAPPY project funded by AXIS/JPI-Climate
Full time position - 10 months
The Department of Geography of the University of Namur (located approx. 1 hour from Brussels) is hiring a postdoctoral researcher to work in the framework of the MAPPY project funded by AXIS/JPI-Climate (http://www.jpiclimate.eu/AXIS/Activities/MAPPY). This project studies the interactions between pollinators, plant diversity and crop yields, under climate and land use change. The hired researcher will continue the development of an agent-based model (ABM) to derive high-resolution land use[…]
The Crop Science Group within the Institute of Crop Science and Research Conservation (INRES) at the University of Bonn is offering a Post-Doc position (E13 TV-L / 100%) for a period of up to 3 years. The Crop Science group at University of Bonn has a strong focus on developing dynamic, process based models for crop and agroecosystem management. The models are used among others to predict impacts of climate or management changes on crop production as well as eco-system services provision.
SLU is recruiting a professor who shares our aspirations to be world leading within the area of weed ecology and management. We are looking for a person with an ecological approach who will work towards solving the applied problems that weedy plants pose in agricultural ecosystems. For this, we welcome applicants with an interest in engaging in trans- and inter-disciplinary research. New EU regulations to ban certain herbicides make sustainable weed management a matter of urgency for Nordic[…]

We are looking for an enthusiastic Post-Doctoral researcher with a background in computer simulation, agent-based modelling, farmer behavioural modelling or microsimulation to join the BESTMAP team in the University of Leeds and contribute to the development of individual-farm agent-based modelling on farmer decision making, in dealing with challenges in land-use intensification, sustainable agriculture and climate change.
The PhD project will focus on modeling fish migration along rivers. The main objectives are to determine the effects of artificial light at night on fish migration, and to identify criteria for artificial sustainable light management. The ideal candidate has a solid understanding of ecological concepts, combining experience in spatial explicit approaches in environmental modelling (e.g. agent-based models) with an interest in confronting ecological theory and models with experimental data.
