One or two studentships are available at the Centre for Policy Modelling (CFPM), starting immediately (or when the candidates can start). The Studentship will be £12K pa plus fees for 3 years. Only EU students can apply. The course of study will be centered around agent-based social simulation, which is the core of the CFPM's work. Preference will be given to those who already have some research experience (e.g. research-based masters), but other candidates will be considered. To get a flavour of our work see the CFPM's website at cfpm.org, especially the discussion papers. Past PhD students include: Luis Isquierdo, Shah Jamal Alam, Olivier Barthelemy, Richard Taylor, and Oswaldo Terán.
If you are interested, in the first instance contact either Bruce Edmonds (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Scott Moss (email@example.com). We hope to fill these positions by December 2008.
Sorry our main website is down whilst we try and fix it. Until that time http://cfpm.org is redirected to here.
