Opportunity: PhD Research at the National Supercomputing Facility in Spain – Roman History

The Social Simulation group from the Computer Applications & Engineering Department at the Barcelona Supercomputing Center is offering a PhD studentship position on Computer Science available in the ERC-project “EPNet: Production and Distribution of Food during the Roman Empire: Economic and Political Dynamics” http://www.roman-ep.net/epnet/.

The project involves an exciting opportunity to work in an interdisciplinary project aimed to explore the use of computer simulation in the study of human behavior.

The candidate would contribute to the creation of new social simulation paradigms through research and development of Pandora, a new open-source Agent-Based Modelling framework, currently being developed at BSC: http://www.bsc.es/computer-applications/pandora-hpc-agent-based-modelling-framework
