Bayesian Agent-Based Population Studies

We are pleased to offer an opportunity to join a cutting-edge project “Bayesian Agent-based Population Studies: Transforming Simulation Models of Human Migration”, funded by the European Research Council (www. baps- project.eu), for a three-month piece of work related to interviewing and carrying out a qualitative survey of asylum seekers and refugees in Europe.

The aim of our project is to develop a simulation model of international migration, based on a population of intelligent, cognitive agents, their social networks and institutions, all interacting with one another. In the modelling process, we are using Bayesian statistical principles to design innovative computer simulations, and to learn about the way the simulated agents make decisions through cognitive experiments.

You will have a PhD (or equivalent professional qualifications) in social or cultural anthropology, and will be proficient in Arabic. Experience of qualitative research and primary data collection in the area of refugee studies, experience of working in an interdisciplinary team, and knowledge of the principles of research ethics are also essential attributes. Track record of peer reviewed publications will be an additional advantage.

This research position will be based in the Department of Social Statistics and Demography, within the School of Economic, Social and Political Sciences, Faculty of Social Sciences, at the University of Southampton. You will work closely with the project team, Prof. Jakub Bijak (project lead) and other team members, on the tasks directly relevant to the interviews and survey work. There will be also an opportunity to work with other, related teams at the University, such as the Centre for Transnational Studies, Faculty of Arts and Humanities.

Applications for Research Fellow positions will be considered from candidates who are working towards or nearing completion of a relevant PhD qualification. The title of Research Fellow will be applied upon successful completion of the PhD. Prior to the qualification being awarded the title of Senior Research Assistant will be given.

Informal enquiries may be addressed to Prof. Jakub Bijak, email: J.Bijak@southampton.ac.uk.

The position is expected to start on 1 March 2022, and will finish by 31 May 2022.
