Functieomschrijving

The candidate will participate in the Data Science Enabling Technology (DSET) programme funded by the Amsterdam Institute of Advanced Metropolitan Solutions (AMS) and Wageningen University & Research. The main task is to implement a 'city simulator' which is an Agent Based Modelling platform targeted to simulating urban processes in which human behaviour and human decision-making are crucial. This not only involves coding but also formalisation of concepts into efficient algorithms using state-of-the-art ABM development environments. We expect the candidate to closely cooperate with the researchers working in this project.

Bedrijfsomschrijving

We are:

The laboratory of Geo-Information Science and Remote Sensing is part of the Department of Environmental Sciences of Wageningen University & Research.

The department of Environmental Sciences of Wageningen University provides fundamental research and academic education on our living environment: nature, landscape, land usage, adaptation to climate change, water and ocean management, and the various competing claims on space. This also includes biodiversity and the sustainability of management and production. Wageningen University is part of the Wageningen University and Research concern.

The mission of our laboratory is to advance spatial competences for a sustainable world through research and education. The education that conveys this mission is offered in a variety of BSc programmes of Wageningen University and concentrated in the MSc Geo-information Science of Wageningen University and the joint MSc in Geographical Information Management and Applications (GIMA). The research of the laboratory has a fundamental character with a clear link to the mission of Wageningen University to provide Science for Impact. Our research agenda is represented in five themes: 1) Sensing and measuring, 2) Modelling and visualization, 3) Integrated land monitoring, 4) Human-space interactions, and 5) Empowering agro-environmental communities. In most recent external evaluation (2015), an international committee assessed our research quality by an excellent score. The laboratory is very international in terms of staff and student composition.
