Qualification Details

The candidate should have experience of modelling, and some biological or ecological knowledge. They should be able to programme using objected oriented paradigms and ideally in C++ at least at a basic level. The applicant is expected to have a PhD or equivalent in a relevant area for one of the positions described. Ability to work and communicate well as part of a team is essential. Good English skills are necessary to communicate with the largely international team.

Responsibilities/Job Description

We are seeking applicants to support continued development of the ApisRAM honey bee simulation. The ApisRAM model is a colony model developed primarily for the evaluation of multiple stressors, including pesticides, on honey bees. It has been developed together with the European Food Safety Authority and subsequently expanded in H2020 projects. ApisRAM is part of ALMaSS and as such deals with detailed landscape modelling to provide context for the highly detailed individual-based modelling of the bees and their behavior.Together with core SESS staff, the candidate will support ApisRAM development by developing, testing and refining the implementation of pesticide fate and effects and/or the implementation of the interactions between stressors and bee health. A key aspect of this work will be modelling the impact of stressors on both individual honey-bee health and on the knock-on effects on colony resilience. In addition, the role of environmental context will be evaluated using ApisRAM with data from a number of European countries linked to the H2020 B-GOOD project.
