Postdoc and PhD positions – Scaling of Urban Forms and Environmental Impacts – Luxembourg

The SCALE-IT-UP project needs a postdoc (3 years) and a PhD student to work at the Luxembourg Institute of Socio-Economic Research (LISER) and at the University of Luxembourg.The project is led by a geographer (Geoffrey Caruso, professor at the University of Luxembourg and LISER) and a physicist (Rémi Lemoy, postdoc at the University of Luxembourg), and will combine approaches from both disciplines to analyse statistically large spatial datasets regarding urban areas and their environmental impacts.

Call for Papers : New methods and epistemologies to explore simulation models

The study of complexity can not be anymore dissociated from intensive computational practices. Modeling and simulation have indeed taken a crucial role in the extraction of knowledge, especially in the study of systems with a high complexity such as socio-technical systems. Quantitative geography is a perfect illustration of how methodological, technical, empirical and theoretical advances necessarily strongly bind together: the use of computation centers in the seventies would be comparable to the current democrati- zation of grid computing which impact dramatically changes the way social science is practiced. The aim of this symposium is take a reflexive positioning on these trends, situate them regarding similar practices, and establish the most crucial future issues to be tackled within that stream of research.

Postdoc Position – Centre Leenards de la Mémoire

We invite applications for a postdoctoral fellow position in the Leenaards memory Centre (CLM), Lausanne University Hospital (CHUV), Lausanne, Switzerland. CLM is a translational service of CHUV dedicated to diagnosis and care of patients with age-related cognitive decline (e.g. Alzheimer’s disease) as well as to clinical research programs. The latter benefit from CLM capacities for patient recruitment and acquisition of standardized electronic records of clinical and cognitive assessment, as well as quantitative brain imaging (MRI), and biomarkers, using multimodal information system in conjunction to hospital and other institutional data systems.
