The Basque Centre for Climate Change (BC3) is looking for a motivated quantitative researcher to work on the international project OBServ (http://www.beeproject.science/observ.html). The main aim is to build predictive models of pollinator biodiversity and ecosystem function delivery using both data-driven and mechanistic models. Start date is Fall 2019, although later dates can be discussed.
Ecosystem services modeler
A research position in ecoinformatics and modelling of coupled human-environmental systems using a combination of techniques, including agent-based modelling, machine learning and earth observation. The candidate should have a strong background in simulation modelling (process-based and/or agent-based). Experience with machine learning is an asset. We are looking for an individual who can support strategic activities related to integrated data science and collaborative, integrated modeling on the semantic web (semantic meta-modelling). The selected candidates will contribute to the ARIES (ARtificial Intelligence for Ecosystem Services) project powered by the k.LAB software stack, a semantic web infrastructure that uses artificial intelligence to build computational solutions to environmental, policy and sustainability problems. The open source k.LAB software includes client and server components that connect data and models from distributed repositories, guided by machine reasoning over a set of shared ontologies. This technology, based on machine reasoning, machine learning, distributed computing and high-performance, multi-disciplinary and multi-paradigm system modeling, is the flagship product of the Integrated Modelling (IM) Partnership (http://www.integratedmodelling.org) which is expected to serve a growing number of worldwide users (from academia, governments, NGOs and industry) in the years to come.
The position will be for a period of 24 months
The position will carry competitive salary, matching the academic and professional profile of the applicant, and excellent work conditions.
