Research Fellow (University of Surrey)

University of Surrey - Faculty of Engineering and Physical Sciences, Department of Mathematics(Ref: 8413)Salary up to £31,798 per annum(subject to experience and qualifications)Applications are invited for a postdoctoral research fellowship in the area of dynamic complex networks available for 24 months from 1st January 2012 through the project Evolution and Resilience of Industrial Ecosystems (ERIE). The successful candidate will join an interdisciplinary research team of mathematicians, social scientists, computer scientists and environmental strategists at the University of Surrey.ERIE is a 6-year programme, funded by EPSRC under its ‘Complexity Science for the Real World’ theme. It includes the gathering of case study data on an industrial ecosystem and on food supply chains, the development and application of appropriate theoretical and computational techniques, simulation using agent-based models and the incorporation of all these elements into ‘serious games’ for use by policymakers. The research aims to embed cutting-edge complexity science methods and techniques within prototype computational tools that will provide policymakers with realistic and reliable platforms for strategy-testing in real-world socio-economic systems. For more information about ERIE please see our website should hold or be soon to complete a PhD in mathematics, complexity science or a closely related subject. Expertise in network theory and/or dynamical systems is desirable. Experience of equation-free methods, data assimilation and/or path-dependency analysis would be an advantage.For informal enquiries please contact Dr Rebecca Hoyle ([email protected])For an application pack and to apply on-line please go to our website you are unable to apply on-line, please contact Mr Peter Li, HR Assistant, on tel: +44 (0) 1483 683419 or by e-mail: quote Post Ref No. 8413Closing date for applications is 10th November 2011
