Post-doc position on social dynamics modelling

The post-doctorate will be hosted in the Laboratoire d’Ingénierie pour les Systèmes Complexes (LISC) at Irstea (http://www.irstea.fr/en/accueil) Center of Clermont-Ferrand (France).  Researchers of LISC are specialized in computer sciences and applied mathematics, with a solid experience of interdisciplinary projects. They develop individual based models of ecological and social dynamics.

The post-doctorate is funded by the FuturICT 2.0 project (http://futurict2.eu/) which involves research teams from several European countries and focuses on developing new synergies between ICT and social sciences. The post-doctorate will be supervised by Guillaume Deffuant and will collaborate with the researchers from other FuturICT2.0 teams, in particular in LAPSCO (http://lapsco.univ-bpclermont.fr/ ) and ISC-PIF (https://iscpif.fr/ ).

Research topic:

The objective of the research is to improve and further develop dynamical models of how individual and group perceive each other, including individual and group self-perception. The context of application will be related to global changes and their potential impact on antagonisms or affinities between groups. The approach will mix studies of simplified computer models exhibiting stylized facts, the analysis of large data sets from the web and potentially lab experiments organized with specialized collaborators from FuturICT2.0.

The post-doctorate will also be in charge of the organization of one workshop dedicated to the valorization of FuturICT 2.0 interdisciplinary internal projects.
