The Department of Systems Analysis, Integrated Assessment and Modelling
(SIAM) of the Swiss Federal Institute of Environmental Science and
Technology (EAWAG) is seeking applications for a

Tenure Track Position in Modelling of Socio-Technic-Economic Systems

The Swiss Federal Institute for Environmental Science and Technology,
8600 Düben-dorf, Switzerland (http://www.eawag.ch) is a federal
institute for water research and pro-tection with close ties to the
Swiss Federal Institute of Techno-lo-gy (ETH; http://www.ethz.ch). The
Department of Systems Analysis, Integrated Assess-ment and Modelling
(SIAM; http://www.eawag.ch/research_e/siam) is concerned with modelling
aquatic environmental systems and integrated modelling of environmental,
technical and socioeconomic systems.

The candidate should build up a research group that develops simulation
models for socio-technic-economic systems and applies them to actors and
institutions involved in environmental decision making and material flux
management. Of special interest to our department is the development of
innovative models, such as agent-based social simulation models, that go
beyond standard modeling practice in this field. The activity of the new
group should strengthen the ongoing research in our department on
integrated modelling for improving understanding and support of
environmental decision making. It should complement the natural science
and environmental engineering experience in our department and at EAWAG
by knowledge of social systems. In addition to conceptural and
theoretical work, the new group should be engaged in applications of
the models to decision makers involved in water use (such as farmers and
consumers) and together with decision makers relevant for water
ressources management (such as governmental authorities). This is
intended to be done in collaborations with other departments of EAWAG
e.g. in the fields of the development and dissemination of sustainable
urban drainage techniques (Departments of Environmental Engineering and
Urban Water Management), of management of rivers and reservoirs
(Department of Applied Aquatic Ecology) and in projects in the planned
new Depart-ment of Socio-Economics of Water.

Requirements for the position are
· a PhD degree in Decision Sciences, Environmental Engineering,
   Economics, Computer Science, or En-viron-mental Sciences,
· research experience in the development and application of novel
   socio-economic models such as agent-based models,
· a profound knowledge of statistics and experience in data analysis,
· a strong interest in interdisciplinary collaboration.

Please send your CV and an outline of research interests to Ms. Karin
Ghilardi, EAWAG, POB 611, 8600 Düben-dorf, Switzerland. Further
information is available from PD Dr. Peter Reichert, [log in to unmask]
