Postdoctoral Position In Complex Sysytems/Urban Mobility

5th September - 2012

Posted on behalf of IFISC

A 1+1 years postdoctoral position is available at IFISC. The candidate is expected to work within the framework of the EC project EUNOIA with the aim of analyzing and modeling urban mobility patterns. The partners participating in EUNOIA include academic institutions: UCL, ETH and CEA as well as IFISC, the city hall of Barcelona and companies as Nommon. Other industrial partners participating as external collaborators include BBVA and Telefonica.

We are looking for a strongly motivated person with skills in computing, data collection and analysis. The candidate should have a PhD (or expect to have one for the starting date) in physics, applied mathematics, computer science or any close related discipline such as engineering.

The selected candidate will join the Institute for Cross-Disciplinary Physics and Complex Systems, IFISC, at Palma de Mallorca and will work in collaboration with Prof. Maxi San Miguel, Dr. Victor M. Eguiluz and Dr. Jose J. Ramasco. The topics of the work will be marked by the objectives of EUNOIA, which include the analysis of electronic information regarding human mobility, the use of agent-based simulation platforms and the collaboration with the other partners of the project.

The position is available starting at the beginning of October 2012. Applications will be continuously received until the position is filled.

Further questions regarding the position should be addressed to Dr. Jose J. Ramasco (jramasco@ifisc.uib-csic.es, tel. 0034 971 259 886).

Applications should be submitted also to Dr. Ramasco via email and should include:
