The Department of Governance and Technology for Sustainable Development (CSTM), University of Twente (UT), the Netherlands, invite applications for an Assistant Professor position in Complexity Science for Sustainable Development. The Assistant Professor will be embedded within the Faculty of Behavioural, Management and Social sciences (BMS) and will be part of the BMS Resilience Research Program. The latter unites researchers from various social sciences with a shared focus on technology and computational methods to explore how individuals, communities, cities or regions withstand, cope, adapt and continue developing in the face of gradual stress, abrupt shocks or disruptive innovations. The BMS Resilience Research Program does so by using computational methods – data analytics, agent-based modeling, gaming and visualization (see also BMS Tech4people Lab) – as research tools in developing solutions towards the UN Sustainable Development goals. An ideal candidate will share an emphasis on computational methods and sustainable urban-regional development challenges. The new Assistant Professor could also connect to the 4TU.Federation strategic research program on resilience of social-technical-environmental systems ‘Designing Systems for Informed Resilience Engineering’ (DeSIRE).
