1/2 PhD positions available at the Centre for Policy Modelling, Manchester, UK

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 TerĂ¡n.

If you are interested, in the first instance contact either Bruce Edmonds (bruce@edmonds.name) or Scott Moss (scott@cfpm.org). We hope to fill these positions by December 2008.
