Open position: Research Associate in Complex Systems Modelling at the University of Sheffield
The University of Sheffield (UK) has an open position for a Research
Associate in Complex Systems Modelling to work on the just-started Swarm
Awareness project (https://swarmawareness.group.shef.ac.uk).
The Swarm Awareness project aims to endow a swarm with awareness of its own
state, thus allowing individual agents with local knowledge to reach a
consensus on the global swarm state. Particular examples of states to
measure are swarm size (number of agents), fraction of the swarm committed
to a unique decision (quorum), and super-threshold decision
We are seeking candidates with a PhD (or equivalent experience) in
mathematics, physics, or computer science, as well as experience of
implementing and analysing numerical simulations. The position is until
12th August 2020 (subject to extension); we aim to let the post-holder
start as soon as possible. The application deadline is 18th of October 2018.
