One full-time Postdoctoral Research Associate post is available in ENFOLD-ing Project, closing date 22 September 2013

Applications are invited for a Postdoctoral Research Associate in the science of complex social and economic systems. The successful candidate will work as part of an interdisciplinary team spanning seven UCL departments alongside Professor S Bishop (UCL Mathematics), Professor F Smith (UCL Mathematics) and Professor Sir A Wilson (UCL CASA).   

The research will form part of the on-going ENFOLD global dynamics project. The role will require the post holder to mathematically and computationally explore the interdependence of complex systems such as Trade, Migration, Conflict and Security and Aid and Development at various scales and hierarchies. 

This post is available from 1 October 2013 or as soon as possible thereafter, and is funded by the EPSRC until 30 June 2015 in the first instance. The post is funded 50/50 by the Mathematics Department and the UCL Centre for Advanced Spatial Analysis (CASA) and it is likely the post holder will be located in CASA.

Two full-time Postdoctoral Research Associates posts are available in Data Science Project, closing date 13 October 2013

Applications are invited for two full-time Postdoctoral Research Associates to work with Professor Steven Bishop on the project "Big Data, Innovations and New Business Models", funded by a grant from the EPSRC. We seek creative and highly motivated researchers who are fascinated by the relationship between information flow on the Internet and real world behaviour, and who are keen to build models and interactive tools to allow various external stakeholders to explore this relationship. The project is funded by a joint grant with Behavioural Science at Warwick Business School and Computer Science at UCL.   

The responsibilities of the posts will include: creating tools to allow users to explore relationships between Internet derived data and real world behaviour; developing and implementing mathematical models to integrate data to measure and forecast changes in behaviour; and liaising with a range of external stakeholders with relevant data sources. The post holders will also teach one course each per year in the Department of Mathematics. 

These full-time posts are both available from 1 November 2013 or as soon as possible thereafter, and are funded by the EPSRC until 30 April 2015 in the first instance.
