Bourses du Max Planck Institute for Demographic Research (Rostock, Allemagne)

Date limite de candidature : 22 avril 2013

Extrait de la présentation en ligne :

"Postdoctoral Research Fellows to work in a research group within MPIDR directed by Prof. Dr. Frans Willekens. The new group will start on 1 April 2013 for an expected duration of three years and its work will focus on agent-based modeling (ABM) of international migration.The objective is to develop simulation models of causal mechanisms driving international migration. How do migration patterns emerge ? Which feedback mechanisms give rise to migration systems ?

Scientific projects could include topics like the estimation of agent-based models of emigration decision and destination choice processes from survey data, agent-based modeling of migration flows between EU Member States, or an agent-based model for population projection by migration history. Interest in international migration with proven expertise in empirical research and modeling with R, as well as in theories of migration will be helpful."
