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.
- 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
- 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 <
- 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.)
