Closing date for application:
February 2nd, 2016

Aplication: 
The applicant is expected to contribute to the development of conceptual and technological foundations for agent-based simulation of socio-cognitive systems (i.e., systems where the interplay between the behaviour of the individuals and their social context is the key feature). We are interested in the development of a conceptual framework that can help the designer of a social simulation to fill the gap that exists between the micro level (agent architectures and local interactions) and the macro level (the sociological phenomena one tries to understand with that simulation) in terms of social constructs and social structures. In very broad terms, work is organized around two research dimensions: the conceptual modelling and the technological implementation. • Along the first dimension, there are three main tasks: i. the conceptual model for socio-cognitive agents (social and rational skills and capabilities) and ii. the conceptual model for the social environment (individuals, groups, organisations, normative elements, values, an so on), iii. the conceptual model for the simulation platform (model of the sociological phenomenon, scenario specification, experimental support system). • The technological dimension implements the results of the conceptual models. • These tasks are guided by a use case on norm-governed activities. The candidate should present a research plan that focus on those aspects closer to his/her profile and motivations. The application will be submitted on line through: http://eformularis.uab.cat/en/web/p-sphere/p-sphere-application Notice that an admissible application requires: ?? • A certificate of the academic transcript for the degree qualifications or a Copy of the PhD accreditation or certification? • Proof of mobility (not to have lived/worked in Spain more than 12 months during the 3 years prior to the call’s deadline).? • Extended CV (5 pages and two letters of reference)? • Proposed research project (max 12 pages including references)? i. Summary & Objectives (1 page)? ii. State of the art (1 page)? iii. Expected progress beyond the State of the art (1 page)? iv. Research Methodology and Approach (2 pages)? v. Workplan, Gantt chart and Resources (3 pages)? vi. Expected Impact on Applicant’s Career Development (1 page)? vii. Ethical Issues (1 page)? viii. References (2 pages)? • Ethical Issues Table • Motivation Letter (1 page) Applicants will be judged on professional merits, scientific and technological quality of the proposed project, adequacy to the IIIA-CSIC research theme, feasibility of implementation and the potential impact of the proposed project.
