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 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[…]

SMARTEES is a Horizon2020 project aimed at simulating a number of successful social innovations in the energy transition, and developing - together with people in the field - a “sandbox model” to experiment with strategies to stimulate societal change. A total of 11 European partners will work together in this exiting project that will run for 3 years. We hope SMARTEES will make a difference in policy making, addressing the social forces that often are critical in reaching a tipping point […]

We are seeking to appoint a Postdoctoral Researcher in the field of Socio-Ecological Systems Modelling for a period of 2 years. Based within the School of GeoSciences at the University of Edinburgh, you will join a team of researchers studying the effects of environmental change on land use, the impacts of climate change on rural and urban environments and how people will adapt to these changes. We explore these themes at multiple temporal and spatial scales using different methods such as […]
