We have an exciting opportunity for a Research Associate in Computational Social Simulation to make a leading contribution to the research and data service activities of the UKRI-ESRC-funded Urban Big Data Centre (UBDC) working with Professor Alison Heppenstall. The successful candidate will have 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, that capture and simulate the dynamic relationships between individuals and how these play out over time and space under a range of different scenarios. You will also play a leading role in the production of research publications and research proposals and contribute to the development of UBDC’s Digital Footprints Data Service. In addition, you will help manage and direct complex and challenging projects, as opportunities allow.
This post is full time (35 hrs per week) fixed term for 30 months.
