Postdoc position in Computational Social Science / Large-Scale Traffic Simulation and Smart Cities

Research at the Professorship of Computational Social Science (COSS) is focused on:

  • bringing modeling and computer simulation of social processes and transportation phenomena together with technology, experimental, and data-driven work
  • combining the perspectives of different scientific disciplines (e.g. social science, computer science, complexity science and sociophysics)
  • bridging fundamental and applied work
  • developing digital tools to support people and studying the resulting behavior.

Job description

You would support and/or contribute to ambitious international research projects such as the Dit4Tram project and/or the ERC Project on Co-Evolving City Life, which are based on large-scale agent-based mobility modeling, using a distributed control and federated learning approach, utilizing principles of self-organization and collective intelligence.

For Postdocs the initial contract would usually last for 2 years and may be later extended.

Your profile

You should have an excellent research background in traffic modeling and simulation, computational social science, complexity science, computer science, data science, and/or socio-physics, with a strong international publication track record in one of the areas mentioned above.

Excellent scientific and computational skills, English language skills, social skills, and international experience are required. We expect you to appreciate collaborating in a diverse, interdisciplinary and multicultural team to jointly and systematically address grand scientific challenges.

Please indicate, whether you are also skilled and willing to develop a software platform of reasonable complexity or a smartphone app, or able to develop parallel code for parallel processing on supercomputers, and what software environments you are using for this.
