Agent Based Simulation? Great Idea! How Can I Ever Make That Happen?

Under the aegis of the Economic and Social Research Council and its National Centre for Research Methods, SIMIAN (Simulation Innovation: A Node) is offering User Fellowships in agent based simulation.

You

  • work in the UK and want to make effective use of agent based simulation outside the usual context of academic research
  • could develop a clearly defined project of two weeks to two months duration
  • would value a supportive and expert environment away from your everyday work
  • could take up the fellowship by March 2011

We

  • have a total of more than 40 years of expertise in simulation and social science
  • are well connected in national and international academic communities and can offer effective advice and contacts to advance your project
  • are keen to develop mutually advantageous collaborations between academic and other potential users of agent-based models.

To apply, please send to Lu Yang < This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it >:

  • a brief CV
  • a short proposal outlining your project and what kinds of fellowship resources would most help you to advance it
  • an estimated budget for expenditure on travel to Guildford and, if required, the cost of accommodation and subsistence during the Fellowship. (A maximum of £1600 is available for each Fellowship.)


Preliminary enquiries can be made to the co-Directors of SIMIAN, Professor Nigel Gilbert < This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
