Research Fellow Vacancy in Complexity Science, Nottingham

University of Nottingham
Research Fellow
Intelligent Modelling & Analysis Research Group
School of Computer Science

Applications are invited for the above post, to work with Professor Uwe
Aickelin and Dr Peer-Olaf Siebers on an EPSRC funded project on using
complexity science to support future energy decision making for cities

The research addresses a key challenge for energy sustainability - how
can individual UK cities play their vital role in the implementation of
ambitious future UK energy sustainability policies between now and 2020,
whilst mitigating conflicts with the local imperatives that until now
have dominated local government decision making? There are many
different actors/key stakeholders (and legislation) involved in decision
making processes that interact/influence each other in a non linear way.
It is common practice to model only a subset of the actors involved in
the decision making process. However, to get a realistic representation
of the real system and its decision making processes we need to model
the decision makers (politicians and senior local government personnel)
on the one hand and the people influencing the decision making process
(energy companies and their executives, activity groups and end users)
on the other hand.

Candidates should already have a PhD or equivalent and previous
experience in at least one of the following areas: complexity theory,
agent-based modelling and simulation, dynamical network modelling,
evolutionary economics.

The successful candidate will deploy agent-based modelling and
simulation to deliver models that enable cities to define their current
energy situation and then reach balanced decisions in their future
energy planning, implementing UK sustainability targets. The project
work will also involve efforts to relate and, where possible, integrate
these agent-based models with dynamical network models of the evolving
energy supply-demand network developed be our collaborators at Leeds

Salary will be within the range 27,183 - 30,594 per annum, depending
on qualifications and experience. This full-time post is available from
1 October 2009 and will be offered on a fixed-term contract for a period
of three years.
